    Ben's Farewell

    I guess I need to say something and first let me say thank you one and all and God bless you all, John thank you for saying such nice things about me but in truth all these things were and will always be a team thing...... Thanks to Joe first and foremost for helping me to make my visions real and work..... Thanks to Dave for putting the hours of research on these projects and dreams and making them a real product, then to Lolly for putting up with my madness and then putting these visions / products out there for the public and making sure people other than us could enjoy them too....... So there is no question on whats next for Ben well it's nothing really but get healthy and pay my bills and enjoy life on lifes terms..... As most of you know I've battled my own demons and health issues and I'm just not going to be in the office but I will always be a part of Revolution, nothing has changed there, I will still do events and give lessons on invites, I will continue to develop new kite designs and ideas, I just cant sit in the office day after day and I cant continue to travel over 300 days a year so I felt it was best for me to step back and enjoy some of my other hobbies...... I talk to Joe often and am always working on projects with him so dont think things are going to be lost, hell I got to much of my heart and soul in this Rev thing to just let it go...... I helped create a legacy and you cant just turn this off paycheck or not, like I said I will get healthy again and I may make the road my home again if I do this Ill see how that goes but for now Ill work on other tasks and projects, attend a few events as time and invites allow and follow the general direction of Rev kites as company and always add my two cents ( your not rid of me yet Lolly ), but really Family I'm here for you if you have questions or problems and as always I'll help you if I can......Ben
  3. Got this a while ago and for me its just not possible with my foot and stuff and being at these are good folks and it's a chance to go and make kiting pay here's some info for the "Family".... Hi Ben -- We'd like to hire a kite flying professional to direct a kite flying activity at our winter carnival event. The kite flying activity would be one of many activities at our event. It would work something like this: Director of kite flying event would have kites available for folks to drop in and take a crack at flying a kite. Director would get the person started then guide them until the person is confident to go solo...then get the next person started, guide them, etc. The event would last approximately 4 hours. Saturday, Feb. 7th 12pm to 4pm. Could you recommend someone who you think is qualified and reputable -- someone that has been hired as in this capacity in the past. Thank you.

  13. It's funny cause me and Alden started this project a year ago but cause of life and all it brings these are the first of many of his kites in the Masterpiece collection that we just got.... It's weird cause Alden is a great artist, a great sewer, but what gets by is how much he really brings when he's at a events, he flies all day, he shows his wonderful Jimmy stack, he helps others all the time, and he gives his all...... His talents are many but the man inside is golden, it's an honor to call him Family and it's even a greater honor to call him brother..... Your work speaks for itself but it's what inside that really matters........ Ben Alden dabbled in kites as a child and into his early 20’s. Paper Eddy kites made from the comics and Gayla bat kites are what he got started with. About ten years ago after starting a new job the work stress carried over to vacation at the beach. His wife suggested that he used to like to fly kites, why didn’t he try that again. The next day after a trip to the Kite Loft he was flying again. After flying for a couple hours he realized he did not think about work or anything else during that time. The next day he bought another kite and it was downhill from there. Soon after he found the Revolution kites on the Internet, bought one and became fascinated with learning to fly them. After searching for a local flier to learn from he met Paul LaMasters at the Smithsonian Indoor. Paul commented that Alden would own a bag full of kites, be building his own kites, and become President of Wings Over Washington all within the next year. Alden went home and told his wife what Paul said and then said, “That guys nuts”. A year later two out of the three things came true but he still thinks Paul is nuts. P.S. There are only two kites left out of four.......
