Folding lasolite help

I've searched but can't find any info about how the devil you fold those things to get them back in the bag. I've got a 6ft x 9 chroma backdrop from lasolite that comes in a disk shaped bag. I've tried twisting it folding it to no avail. The sucker just won't comply, it springs out all over the place. Someone please help me it's driving me nuts. I'm using it next week and don't want to look like a right plonka in front of my client. :-) any help would be appreciated.

Twist and turn, sort of making it into an "8" and then bring the two bits together. I know, very frustrating until you get the hang of it and then you wonder why others can't do it, rather like riding a bike.

Thanks Bob, It worked. I think I'll have to have a few practice runs just to make sure.

Martin, whereabouts in London? I got a smaller version "circular" Lastolite. They are easier, the rectangles are real tricky! And yes, the plonka factor is well hard! You going to Video Forum?

Grazie
