Ben doesn't have to bid, he's getting 8 free kites out of this deal so far, unless other artists jump in with their 2 kites, actually, Ben would have to bid and win 1 kite to have the complete collection, that kite being the duplicate of the kite that is choosen by the top artist that goes to AKA, but that would be kinda like inside trading.

Are you sure these artists are going to make 2 each? I sure would have been more eager to jump in on the bidding if it was One-Off kites being made for this challenge.

MINE IS THE SECOND IS A SECRET AND DIFFERENT

I agree with the above, although I'm not participating. This time.

Was Bazzer's made on a Zen sail?

Oh, those aren't the Zen characters in the upper-right portion of the sail... I wonder what they mean. Probably means "should have saved your pennies buddy this auction will get expensive for those involved."

Spectacular.

Everything Ben's posted so far is epic.

Well how does this sit with everyone?

1. I or anyone here at Revolution will not be able to bid.

2. Bids will be secret between just me and the bidder.

a. How that would work Joe Blow contacts me by email or phone and says Ben I bid $500 on Bazzers kite, then say

Joe 2 calls me and says he's willing to pay $750 for Bazzers kite, I would except that bid and within 4 days I will

contact Joe Blow and say you have been out bid. I will go thru with them until Joe Blows bid is at least $50.00

above the $750 which Joe 2 has bid on the kite , so Joe Blows next bid would have to be over $800 and on and on

till there all gone.

3. So how does this work for everyone and we need to figure a rock solid end in bidding, then as a extra to the winner

of the highest bid kite that person will get the very first Ben Design Revolution Kite "The New York Minute" this is

a secret pattern and design I have been working on for a year, this kite will be numbered #1 and signed by Joe,Dave,

and myself..... This will be the very first kite that comes into production and this is totally my design and it is cool, way cool as you will see when it come out in a month or so...... Also any of the bidders will have a chance to buy the

"New York Minute" way before anyone else and at a reduced rate....... Benblue_cool.gifblue_cool.gifblue_cool.gif

hey Ben,

I'd kind of like a list of the specifications on each maker's entry too,

* material used for the sail and a size at a minimum, (or are they all being made to 1.5 formats?)

Bazzer's, Gibian's I'd expect to be nylon creations based upon their past masterpiece efforts and Shook's is undoubtedly Icarex.

THANKS!

Well after a weekend of photos and just having fun I thought I'd bring another one to the table

for you...blue_cool.gifThis one is by Amy Doran who besides being "Connors Mom" and "Charlie" is in

herself one of the up and coming designer and kite maker in the world..... Amy calls this one

"SkEyes" and with it having the feathers that attach to the ends I just had to fly it (sorry Amy)

and it flew smooth and made a very,very, nice sky statement..... So here it is "SkEyes" by one

of the best ladies of kiting and my dear friend, Amy Doran..... Benblue_cool.gifblue_cool.gifblue_cool.gif
