seeing as a few of us are going...what banners (if any) are u taking...would be nice to notice fellow tops.

i was thinking of getting a usa flag and painting in white letters somert like "lindsay davenport u rock"...what about everyone else? any ideas?

RayRob
Mar 22nd, 2005, 02:59 PM
well, I'll probably take a USA flag. I have one hanging in my bedroom with a British Flag, but I'll probably buy a new one to "deface".

If I write anything on it, it probably won't be too original.....more like "Go Davenport".....or "Lindsay Rules the Court"......or "Lindsay, Queen of the Courts".....you know...those sorts of lines.

You know that large tent I bought? Well, I'm taking part in a 24 hour event as part of the youth group that I lead and I've desided to give it a try. I'm going to "pitch" it in the church hall....so that I can segregate myself from the teenage runts to try and get some sleep! If it is too big then I might think about getting a smaller one - but it's a good oportunity for me to try it out! :lol:

I'm definately going wimby! Perhaps book a few days off from work during the fortnight.

One last thing.....if (or when ;) ) Lindsay makes it to this years final, how many of you are going to join me in buying ground passes so we can be present on the grounds during the finals on the saturday? If we're vocal enough, maybe we'll get a mention ;)

Oh, yeah, I was also thinking what the hill could be called when we take over and I did come up with Lindsay Ledge too!

Looking up some extra words in a thesaurus I came up with; Davenport Dune, Davenport Drop, Davenport Drift, Davenport Dome, Lindsay's Landslide, Lindsay's Levee, Lindsay's Limit, Lindsay Levitation, Lindsay's Leviathon, Lindsay's Lump (a strange one :lol: ...mmm maybe not!), Lndsay's Load....ok, so with some words the Thesaurus gets desporate, but you get the picture ;)

Any of these that you might like? We would have to make known to the world what the hill should be called - it might get us noticed on TV :D I can see the Headlines: "Lindsay fans come out of hibernation and into the Limelight!"

Banners:
I hate henman, Tim who?, Tim is crap. Also lindsay rocks, lindsay kicks ass, those sorts of ones!
I want a little caricature of linds punching tim.
Or perhaps we could wear tower of power tee shirts, with our collection of usa flags.....
Anyone got any ideas, i have never met any lindsay fans at wimby, but i think we really should!

Well, I'm working on some photoshop illustrations of Lindsay, so I will see if I can make one that looks like Lindsay punching Tim. Might have to leave it with me for a big as sometimes I get adjitated with the computer when it doesn't comply! :angel:

Well, I've whipped something together for you, regarding the cartoon. This is only a base image that I've put together to work from. I thought I'd post it so you can see what I have in mind. I have some other ideas along the same lines but will post them as I go along.

Remember that this is just a "base" image and later it will look more like a 'cartoon'.

maybe if everyone does there own t-shirt but has the sayin "she came, she saw....etc" then they would all be unique and individual but still united with the saying.

RayRob
Mar 26th, 2005, 08:25 PM
Not had any time to work more on the Lindsay punching Henman cartoon/picture......I've hardly been in the house for the last 3 days! Glad that those who can see it like it though :D

Kelly, I think it probably is a better idea to use the same slogan but with different designs. Mainly because it might be difficult to get all the money off people in time to get the t-shirts printed, plus we all get to show off our artistic side ;)

I tried out my tent the other night at this indoor camping thing I did. It is way too big but I broke one of the pole anyway when I pulled it appart! I think I might get a smaller one. I do have this "beach tent" that we bought from holiday once....maybe that could work, although there's only enough room for me and a bag - :lol: I'd have to do a water-proof test and if it leaked then I will have to take a tarpolian!

Is it true that Wimbledon provide "tent-making" equipment for those who arrive unprepared? I'm sure I read in Ace once, that they give out or hire out tarpolians and poles....not sure how true this is.......anyway, I'll just take my own sheet :D

At the moment I am only going on the first Monday. I have tickets for Court One and I was hoping that Lindsay might get put on there, if she plays Monday and I might then see her. I may try and go other days but not sure when.

im going to matalan on friday to see if they have any white t shirts.

*timtams*
Apr 13th, 2005, 01:08 PM
omg kelly....matalan..... we are sooo the same......
(sees kelly filterring thru all the clothing aisles at tkmaxx)

I still need an unsigned flag that i can deface slightly by writing on in marker pen, goes down leeds market......

I already have one, but I think I'll be buying another specifically for defacing.....well, writing a message of support on it ;)

I might do it the lazy way and iron on a few transfers.....I don't think I've got time to colour in big letters.....I'll let the iron do the work :lol:

Apr 14th, 2005, 12:54 PM
TKMaxx rocks, though i think the point of going there is not to spend quite so much. I bought some nice cK jeans for £7 knocked down from £90!

I want me a bobble head.... i may get a henman bobble head and pulls its head off and then have sign with 'tim easily broken' on it!
I'll let the iron do the work What is an iron, i do not know how to work one..... Let the dryer do the work for you! :bounce:

Do you think if i did my own poster sized version of my avatar and waved it around, do you think i'd get a free bobble head? Who listed that pic with tim getting punched by linds, cos i would love to get that on a tee shirt and i dont understand all this crap about irons and transfers etc etc for my flag plus i dont have a printer which could cause me probs..... any thoughts? beckl :bounce:

RayRob
Apr 16th, 2005, 04:45 PM
it was me who posted that pic of Lindsay hitting Tim, I did it on my PC but I haven't got round to perfecting it although it's fairly effective as is. If you use it, of course I'll have to have artist credit - lol ;)

I found a great site for t-shirt printing design....they can do posters too. I spent hours last night designing and Alias (as in the TV program) T-shirt because I can't get one sent to the UK from the ABC site....I ended up buying it so when it comes I can let you know what the quality is like. It cost me £18.55 with P&P but that was because there were 2 logos on, one text tranfer and it had black sleeves. For a normal white fruit of the loom T-shirt it's about £8 without any transfers one....by the time you've put a couple of images on it might be about £15.

The company is Eshirt.it: http://www.eshirt.it/service/idee/123/?myl=en&mycur=GBP&newusrid=40bb3ceda378f&newfrom=3f2bc7399303a

It's a company started in Italy but they are based in britain too and all costs are written in GB£ sterling.

I have come up with an idea to grab the BBC's attention.....a design for the back of my T-shirt:
http://www.afreeimagehost.com/upload/4260/T-shirtBBC_design.jpg

If some of you can't see it, I will post it as an attachment. What do you think of it? If you didn't guess, but I'm sure you did, I used the actual BBC logo.

yeah i got the transfer paper from wh smiths £6.99.

Apr 17th, 2005, 12:37 PM

Apr 19th, 2005, 03:34 PM
I am liking- 'she came, she saw, she kicked your ass and also she came, she saw, she aced your ass' as well as hitting shit tim.
Also perhaps that pic on the back with 'she'll kick your ass' am not yet sure of design quite yet! I think i can get someone to do it for a tenner at a proper t-shirt printing shop. Can't be paying too much...i still need cash to get into wimby...&*^king rip off that those crappy ground passes are. :devil:

Do you guys have Centre Court tickets or like any of the show court tickets? :confused: Cause if you made a sign for ESPN/ESPN 2 and it was good, they would maybe show it and I could send you a tape. I will be watching EVERY match. ;) Either that or you can sit on Henman Hill. They NEVER stop showing it. They replay it OVER AND OVER! :o I was happy when he lost so they could MOVE ON.

Hope ya'll do good.

RayRob
May 14th, 2005, 11:31 AM
There are lockers this year apparently but they are outside the grounds on the golf course car park, car park 1 and st mary's church car park. What I'm wondering about is you queue up for tickets all night, then you have to get up and walk somewhere to put your stuff into storage....like many other people, but how on earth do you find the exact location where you were standing without losing your place?

-Rache

Kelly
May 14th, 2005, 04:59 PM

wimbledon annoys me....i have no idea where these locker thingys are. rache are u going on your own? if so what days? i will be there from thursday to wednesday so if u wanna queue with me you can do as i am on my own as well and i think siobhan is camping with me on the friday night for 'peoples saturday'. pm me if ya want.

Kelly
May 14th, 2005, 10:46 PM
thats cool. more than likely will be campming for the monday tickets. ive decided though i am only getting show tickets for the days lindsay is playing ie) if she isnt playing saturday then i'll proberly just get a ground pass as i cant afford to spend £40+ a day for tickets.

RayRob
May 15th, 2005, 02:51 PM
I haven't desided which days yet. Maybe second week because I have already got to ask for various days off for DFS Classic. I need to organise my days. Probably camp second monday for tuesday tickets - should be fourth round action in my reckoning. Or camp sunday for monday ticket.

I think I will deside during the first week of Wimby, mainly so I know which day Lindsay will be playing. Am I right in thinking that the women don't begin to play on the same day until Quarters? I can't remember as all the grandslams differ slighty.

I think I will wear that picture on the front of my T-shirt and the "Lindsay Davenport Best Born Champion" on the back. Hopefully, we'll all get noticed and the BBC can do a mini series during the Champs about crazey Lindsay fans! lol!

I just went to town today to post a couple of items I sold on Ebay and came home with a camping mat from B&M (similar to Wilkinsons or Pound Stretcher) for just £1.99!

All I gotta do is get my beach tent and I'm set! :woohoo:

Oh, by the way....what size bag are you taking to put your tent, sleeping bag etc in. I have this big "hiking" type bag, and might take that so everything fits in. Obviously I would have to put it into storage, but are there limits to the size of luggage in storage? The reason I ask is the wimby website says £1 per item....now I wonder if my huge bag would be classed as 1 item? or if when they search it, they will charge me for my sleeping bag, camp mat and tent sepourately?

May 30th, 2005, 03:31 PM
Wow! you guys are soo talented. I am having the punching tim one and the mastercard one, all i need now are teeshirts and a colour printer.
Then do i just take my design to a shop and get them to transfer it across???

How the hell else do you do it?

And what about my cheap ass flag, how do i get lettering on that without using a marker pen. (as i will probably spell linds wrong or sumat dumb)

Please email me full instructions, i am on messenger at becrolla@hotmail.com

Do i have to print the pic onto a white tee or can it go on a light grey one?

Sorry for such spasticated questions, but i am from bradford, no explanation needed there :) :bounce: :bounce:

One last question. Can you get tennis coverage on freeview?

I expect answers soon (beckl)

RayRob
May 30th, 2005, 03:49 PM
Well Becky. not sure how it's done at your general t-shirt printing shop but i got one done online at eshirt.it The T-shirts are good quality and have to be done on white or light coloured (NB. If your image relies on white, you would need a white T-shirt). With the online thing, it could run anything between £10-£20 depending on how many images you have. Online, you design your t-shirt on a template type thing by uploading your pictures. Then, you go to the paying process and they are done in italy but prices are in GB pounds and are printed and shipped with 24 hours.

I suspect a general Tshirt printing shop in your home town if you have one, would work in a similar way. Except you would save your designs on a disk, take it in then show them how you want it. I was gonna do my own but I don't really have the time so I might just design online instead.

I don't have freeview but I here that the wimbledon interactive coverage does work on it by pressing the red button, however unlike with NTL cable or SKY where you have upto 5 courts to choose from freeview only have about 2 or 3 courts.

As for lettering on your flag. The only suggestion I have is T-shirt transfer printer paper. Just print your lettering on the paper....use several sheets if you want big letters. When you print, chose them printer paper option as "Tshirt" transfer" or something like that and it will automatically (should) print the letting in mirrored image, because then when you iron it on it'll be the right way about!

I think that should answer all your questions :D I hope ;)

I put my design with writing on the back because I hate seeing people starring at me while they're trying to read what it say - makes me uncomfortable ;) :lol: Plus, if I'm sitting on Lindsay's Ledge the camera from behind will pick-up my t-shirt - well, at least that's the plan! ;)

LOL, yeah, just thought it was a bizzarre looking TV screen - glad you cleared that one up! ;)

I really love the Master Card idea too - very whitty.....there is a special name for it in the design industy when you use someone elses idea, but change it for your own accord, but I can't think right now what it is.....it was so long since I did it at uni. And no, it's not plagerism....that doesn't exist in design :lol: A modern example is the VW "singing in the Rain" ad....I wish I could remember what it was, not that it's important!

Well done again :D

For future ref...buy at least 2 sizes too big, these are slightly small, they are those womens clingy ones, not the nice baggy blokes ones (damn it).

I think a ground pass on finals day might be within your budget....I think it's only about £7....the further into the event you go, the cheaper the ground passes because there are less and less matches going on!
