YET MORE FLYING ACTS

The "bundle" high right

is a long length of shock

cord wrapped many times

between 2 triangles that

added flexible tension to

the side speaders of the

flying net to allow some

bounce to the net's bed

In later years the Gaonas

used a firmer version to

give Tito a tramp like

effect for many returns

to the catch trap after

the others came down

A real crowd pleaser

Ah, it never occured to me that the Gaonas were using a different sort of net. It was a great crowd pleaser- I still smile when I think of my father and I breaking into laughter when he did it.
