Also, any ideas on how to lock banners into place? It seems to me that if you use a lock it's easy enough to just cut the rest of the banner around the lock.

Drop cloths in my opinion.

Sew a rope through the top, and then use a great deal of metal zip ties to hold it in place

2018-01-21 01:33:46 UTC  

use a steel cable?

2018-01-21 01:33:49 UTC  

as the rope?

2018-01-21 01:34:06 UTC  

That is also an option.

2018-01-21 01:34:18 UTC  

i figure if it's just a rope, then they can cut the rope no?

2018-01-21 01:34:46 UTC  

This is true.

I did consider running a flag up the flagpole, then locking the thing.

Unless you want to make your banner out of sheet metal, they're going to be able to cut through the cloth to matter what you use to secure it.

2018-01-21 01:37:52 UTC  

Sheetmetal banners? We might be on to something....

I've actually looked into having road sign sized prop made, and bolting it into place with a fuck ton of Lock Tite.

I have brainstormed this quite a bit. Another idea I had was to have a flag or banner attached at two side points with 550 cord. You tie the two cords around a light pole or something. Then use a weighted rock tied to the top tie to throw the hole thing upward, dragging the banner high and out of reach. Then, the rock must fall free.

Yet another idea was to use helium balloons on each end of a banner. You'd have to calculate the altitude and density so the assembly wouldn't go too high, or crash into the ground. Then, get upwind of a major city and let her rip.

There's also pirate radio stations, but that's super illegal. And, you WILL get DF'd if you do it enough.

Howell Michigan, banner pics will be up in an hour or two.

2018-01-21 02:20:50 UTC  

Putting up a banner at night?

2018-01-21 02:33:16 UTC  

We did the banner before sun down

2018-01-21 02:33:51 UTC  

After the banner we did our fitness test vetting, then we had dinner followed by postering

2018-01-21 03:25:40 UTC  

Has anyone ever considered using a roll of Tyvek to make a super long banner?

2018-01-21 03:26:51 UTC  

No but that's a great idea

Very nice. Very nice font on the banner, and the logo, too. Size and placement of said font might need some work.

2018-01-21 03:54:05 UTC  

Huge props to @Jay MI for making the banner, other participants were @Deimos-MI , @Patrick MI and one other who's being vetted tomorrow, Himmler #3747
