||2005 Festival - Ray Bethell Banner
Dave (standing next to Ray on the left) gives Ray Bethell the banner he made for him.
When Ray arrived at the festival on Tuesday David waited for Ray to get his kites up in the sky, and then took the banner down to him and put it up for everyone to see. It is packaged with two 29ft Premier Kites, Heavy Duty telescoping poles and a ground stake that is very special to David, to hold it erect in the wind.
Premier Kites has joined in our industry's celebration of Ray and is sponsoring the banner poles for free for as long as Ray is flying his new banner.
This photo was then used as the cover for the DVD of Ray flying, and his life. About mid week Ray personally presented Dave with a signed copy of the DVD.
More to come on Ray as we collect more sponsors and get the Ray Bethell non-profit organization off the ground in order to support him in his efforts around the world on kiting's behalf.
