Worlds and GP could be great fun next year if we have the Battle of the Banners. Previous competitions, such as the last Olympics, could be re-fought in the stands while the skaters stop their programs to watch the mayhem. Banner regulations would control size and sharpness of staff. World Banner Teams would be chosen.
Back to reality, I don't know if I would enjoy sitting near a banner-wielding fan. At the very least, it would be distracting and aggravating. At worst, it could be dangerous. One might have to buy insurance in the competition ticket package. Maybe I should go back to bed until sanity returns.
My Barbara Ann Scott banner is in the works.
I'm glad to know I'm the only person working on a Kulik banner!
My Trixi banner will feature perfectly traced paragraph loops. HA!
"awwww....shades of Janet Lynn" - Dick Button on anyone who makes more than one mistake in their program.
Maybe because people made expensive banners years ago and want to get their money's worth?
My Hans Brinker banner will feature his "silver skates"
Well, it seems that these wacky historical banners worked for Plushy...so maybe Dick Button will be reinstated after I wave my "I Stick with Dick" and "On the Button" creations at the next Skate America!
Dick Button Historical Quote of the Month: "He didn't try to do it well; he just DID it well!" (commenting on Scott Hamilton's free skate, at the 1984 U.S. Nationals)
I am so angry. I just got word that my "Keeper of Tonya Harding's Spiral" banner has been ruled illegal. I will have to petition the USFSA.

Re: the Plushy ones - his fans might have been trying to make a point
David Jenkins banner in the works. It will be the only banner with better edges than Patrick Chan's at next years Worlds men's event.
