    Wohoo !! Brilliant :D I would volunteer but, I don't attend that many shows and I am in the furthest part of the south. I think having someone in the London area would be a good idea as they are a little more central.

    If you compare the stand at ED38 to the stand at CPoP I think you will agree that the stand at CPoP definately looked more refined with the club banners. Its not the amount of cars that make a stand, its the Club promotional items without these small details it looks like a car park ;)

    The bannersforall seems quite reasonable.

    Example : Sail Banner, Pole, Bag and Ground Stake..with full colour text and logos on a colour background. 2.5 metre sail banner which is around 8ft, are priced at £111 each

    "Kit" prices include printed sail banner, "super strong" push fit pole, zip bag and simple ground stake

    I wonder how much it costs to hire some scantily clad Bonnet Dollies ? :) I'm sure me 'n' J4se could handle auditions if needed ?

    Seriously though i don't get out to the shows themselves but if you need storage or a relay point at any time to store or pass kit about i'm more than willing to help down this end

    I wonder what the quality is like Zboyd ? That does seem like a good price, I remember emailing around a while ago as some of the Southern groups were interested in getting some made up and the best quote I got for a full colour sail banner was around £150

    is that for a textile banner or a pvc type? what are the vagowners ones as they lok quite hardcore?

    maybe get them to make one up as per the kit,with the pretext of if we're happyan order will be placed for several more and do we get discount? ;)

    do we need any of the standard banners,like we have already or are we just going to go with the feather variety on poles?

    I like the feather sail banners. They are more noticeable from a distance, although they aren't too practical in high winds.

    oh yes, we definitely need those as said in the op the tie on variety aren't much cop as such but maybe one on a frame or something is also needed for attracting new members looking at the stand?? :shrug:

    Flaps, in the name of equality and that quite a few of the girls go to meets,bonnet beefcakes should also be considered..Boo and I can handle that side of things ;)

    If you do decide to pop in Mylo, just ask them what kind of deal they could do on 6 sail banner kits and 6 parabola banner kits.

    Artwork will be supplied to their specifications (I've already downloaded the template), printed CMYK, and would need to be printed on yellow backgrounds.

    If the quality is worthwhile and the price is favourable, I may get an order placed this week.

    Agree that we need flags and poles. If there's somewhere round the midlands that can do a good deal then I'm happy to run around sorting it.

    Some frames for the ground level banners would be good too. Wonder if some sort of camping equipement could be modified to deal with the portability issue. Will look tomorrow to see if i can find some images to show what i mean.

    I for one am happy to offer storage/ transportation for promotional equipment. After all it does give me another excuse to go to more shows. ;)

    Cluur.. you are a cheeky bitch! ;) *Only reason I didnt have my usual banner is due to Stu having it to get the framework made for it for GTI Inters.

    Fl@ps, Im disappointed.. I thought I was ya mate :(

    and finally , I dont mind holding on to any banners etc in my house, Im fairly central , go to most shows or can easily get the banners to someone that is if Im not attending a particular one.
