The dragon hunt continues

Newport's Superdragons project is still going strong, despite attempts by a minority of idiot vandals to spoil the fun (currently 15 have been attacked in one way or another). Nevertheless I think it's been a big hit with kids and families during the school holidays, and some kids have even been inspired to make their own dragon!

I've walked past my own dragon quite a few times in town (and also given it a quick check-up - say aaaah!) and it's great to see kids and adult reacting and interacting with it.

The idea of searching for the single rugby ball on there has lead to some bemused reactions, and some accusations that there isn't even one on there! My brother alerted me to a Facebook conversation he had last month... (if you don't want to know where the rugby ball is, look away now!)

The dragon looks stupendous. You're a lucky man to have that opportunity!

Cheers HV! It's great to see it being enjoyed by the public, and I'm glad of the chance to have done it.

Thanks John. It's been a rewarding experience, and the public still seem interested by it all.
