The (Now not so) Big Flag

I have just been reading a thread from about a month ago discussing the flag, just wondering if anything has happened since about getting it cut down and selling for smaller flags or taking the crest and putting it on a smaller background?

 

Update?

 

Cheers

Work is still underway as far as I'm aware personally, but if you feel like offering your services then say so here, as I know the organiser reads the board from time to time and I'm sure any help would be arreciated!

Yep the flag is currently ready to be repaired / cut down. There will be an opportunity for everyone to own a piece of the spare material that comes from it. WATCH THIS SPACE!!!!

 

Thanks for any offers of assistance with this, we'll keep you all posted

Oy Ackey - less of the "time to time" business! :grin:

 

It's going up to Consett next week - Mandy at AAflags is on holiday this week and she's the one who knows all about it.

 

I'm just orgainising the transport up there and the cutting down/refurb work, and getting it back. I'm hoping someone else can assist with the selling of the 6x4 flags, the only other thing someone could help with would be taking it up to Consett - I'm strugglign for time so it might have to go on a pallet carrier. I'd prefer to take it though so we can explain and baby sit....

 

Mark has some thought of what to do with the proceeds from sale of the remnants

 

We have the option of leaving the remnant flags up at AA and having them do lettering etc (www.aaflags.co.uk) - but we need to decide quick.

 

It will take a week all being well - so ready for playoffs.

 

Right - off to reserves now. cheers

Peanuts, if you PM OminousPoultry then he can organise it. I was going to do it but if you are off work it'll be easier for you, diesel wont be a problem.

What is the final design then?

 

Just the crest on a smaller "big" flag or into two flags??

 

 

both actually - the crest on a smaller big flag and another flag with Keep The Faith. The rest will hopefully be sold as 6x4 flags with the proceeds going to charity.....we want to get it ready for Bradford but it might not be done in time.

The smaller main crest one is ready and might be back for Hudds and Bradfud.

 

I reckon if we have it out before remaining games and get the crowd going it'll be a bonus - they are all big games coming up and we need to get the crowd going especially at home.
