    My banner will not hide itself away after a few years, to raise little banners in relative obscurity.

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    Great ideas, everyone! Wouldn't it be a hoot if a bunch of us showed up at Skate America with historical banners? Speaking of "hoot," I'll be sure to include a RUSTY HOOT in my Dick Button banner.

    I'm willing to bet it was all those oldies' banners that convinced them to do a new Pro/Am. JS.

    I want a Tonya Harding banner.

    With a big spanner and lots of very offensive slogans.

    Lambiel's banners should stay until a better skater comes up.

    There won't be anyone else like him. He's a one off.

    So true!! Well done MADGE SYERS!!! You ROCKED!!

    I'd have to hang one for her, one for Janet Lynn, and for sentimental reasons one for '61 U.S. Worlds Team.

    ETA: I must add another one saying Alois Lutz for the World Figure Skating Hall of Fame!

    Does this mean I need to stop work on my patchwork quilt banner starring Rahkamo/Kokko, Drobiazko/Vanagas, Maria Bute and Olga Markova?!

    Definitely the flowers!

    I could do a Jill Trenery banner. I'd just have to pad out the shoulders.

    And style the hair into that very 80's style.

    Actually with the Lexi Winston banner, it would be "Watch out for the flowers!!!"

    Perhaps the old banners are just a sign of the times, not enough money to make new ones. The people who bring them do it just to try and get their face on the TV broadcast, as they had in the past with contemporary banners.

    Anyone what to make one for either Gillis Grafström or Karl Schäfer. Thought we needed more ancient men to match Madge.

    Someone should make a "defunct ice dance/pairs teams" banner. We've certainly had enough splits this year to make a HUGE one.

    Good question - I have been wondering too.

    The banners are very nice, but almost too professional/perfect. Though they do not look as nice, I do sort of miss the 'homemade' banners.

    She wouldn't be able to read it...

    I'm actually looking forward to see if you guys are actually going to go forward with this
    I'd love to.
