First Ever (and Hopefully Annual) Revolution Calendar

Well, for all you dark side kite flyers, we have put something together exclusively for the quad heads in the world.

A true, 100% Revolution Calendar!

That's right!! Now you don't have to have the beautiful creation known throughout the world as "The Rev" mixed in with all those unsightly flipping duallies or "non-controllable" single liners! Just Rev's in their beautifulest form!

We have teamed up with one of the industries most famous photographers, John Chilese, and through his eye have put together an all new 2009 Calendar full of Revolution kites seen and flown at various festivals and events around the world. Just the best of the best made it through. Included are photos of the famous I-Quad with John Barresi and the rest of the team, along with the all envious Masterpiece Series Rev's, 180 Go pilots made it in too, as well as stacks, customs, one-off creations, and even photos of the most wonderful Rev pilots (gods?) responsible for the creation of these awesome kites, Joe H. and Ben D from Revolution Ent.. This calendar is sure to make any office or study a beautiful place to be and will surely help make those days when your stuck inside a lot more enjoyable. Show your friends what Quad Flying and The Dark Side are all about. Take them to the events with you and with a little luck I am sure you can get them signed by the pilots in the photos! Ahhh the fame of kite flying!

So where is it at you ask? You can purchase yours now from our Cafe Press shop:

-----------
As a side note, we had 100's of pictures to pick from (anyone who knows John Chilese and his photo collection will understand). It has taken us over 2 months to narrow down the selection to just 12 pictures and we just couldn't do it....so we somewhat cheated and snuck in multiple pictures on a couple pages. Still, it was a difficult task to get the selection down to even those few pictures. Photo's chosen were based mainly on picture quality and uniqueness, some pictures were very awesome but just didn't happen to crop right to work on the calendar pages...(plus we had to save a couple for next year...maybe....). John Chilese is a wonderful friend and an awesome pilot, ironically he doesn't really fly Rev's that much but we're working on him :). His pictures have been used in many publications including printed material, online websites and other advertising materials. His unique eye for beauty and design is what helps bring the kites he photographs to life.

John has graciously worked with me to put this calendar together and make it a reality. A portion of the proceeds from the calendar will indeed make it back to him for his time and effort. Please drop him a message or e-mail sometime and thank him for his photo's and effort that helped make this calendar a success. If your on the flying field and you see him walking around, be prepared cuz there's a huge chance you or your kite is gonna get its picture taken and it may someday end up on a calendar too. :)

**For those that fly those other kites, we're finishing up our third annual AWOC calendar that features kites of all types. Should be available within the next 2-3 weeks!

Thanks for reading and as always,

Who is that flying in the July picture? The camera perspective certainly makes him look small.

Cheers,

I believe that is actually Ben's kite. Lynn Foster sewed up a couple of weave kites in red/white/blue. In the discussion about the build, Jim Foster talked about flying Ben's weave kite. Mike Kory flew it, so should be able to confirm my guess.

Cheers,
Tom

Yes Tom your guess is correct. The weave kite is Ben's. Also Lynn did do two weave kites this year. She is a great sewer. If you make it out to KP7 next year Jynx you will more then likely be able to see all three up close and personnel. I also had a chance to fly Ben's kite, very soft feel in high winds.

:thanks: Tom and Ken- Thanks for the info! I'll be at the KP7 so I'll have to check them out!

Believe it or not, I just got in from "trying" to fly on a set of 30' lines on my B! (My first attempt in snow). The winds were constantly shifting, it obviously was dark, I couldn't see the lines, and setting it up was another B. I also found that 4-6" of snow likes to stick the kite, like glue, to the ground. I'm sure if any of my neighbors saw me I'll soon have a knock on the door from the funny farm.

Laughing outloud, it was an experience I will not soon forget. :rotfl I think I'll wait for better "days" to try flying again!

Lousy flying, but, I sure had fun... I'm still smiling!

Can you spell O-B-S-E-S-S-E-D ?

I have to go... there's someone with a net at my door!

PS: NO! I don't drink!

No it doesn't ... it sounds terrible. Shame on you Jynx, some one from Wisconsin should not be encouraging folks to mess up a simple drink that has a real history. Mess with wine or liquors or sports drinks or even iced tea, but please leave the beer alone.

Beer is God's way of saying he loves us!

Cheers,
Tom

You wont be talking about me now would Jeff? :oops: :rotfl

Jynx just ask Backdraft how tasty "Wild Blue" really is. :lol: Personally its not that bad almost like a wine cooler version of a beer.

Obsessed? Admitting it is the first step. NOT that ANY of US here will ever do that. :twisted:
