Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".
Questions or concerns?

Thank goodness you can still kick yourself.

I usually anchor all of my SLK's.

Mine was anchored. Like I said... stupid   Embarrassed

I went to step over the line near the anchor point and tripped over it.  In the effort to NOT fall on my face I rolled sideways, thus wrapping the line around my ankle.  Just as I went to loosen the loop around my ankle a strong gust came along.

3 feet to the right and I would have walked AROUND the anchor point  Cry

I still think the is your best bet. It is already started and a database. They ask good questions so you're not going on anyone's private property without permission. The only way to expand the listings is if we do it. No one is going to make a pre-loaded app of kite flying fields/beaches. If everyone adds their own or favorite fields it will get populated quickly with more locations. Wikipedia started small (relatively).

I usually anchor all of my SLK's. Someone on this forum put it a good way. I paraphrase: Since the kite costs way more than the line, buy strong enough line so that the kite never gets away.

I'm trying to make it for the weekend, but might just be a day trip. Hope to see you Jim.

Previously a gearhead . . . . 


Oh, I think you might still be a gearhead . . . .  Grin

Don't know whether I'll be able to make it this year or not, but if I'm around I'll make it for at least a day . . .

GLKF certainly changed my life for the past 3yrs!!! Previously a gearhead, now I know where every flag is in a 50mile radius!  We have our room reserved for friday and saturday night at the days inn.  Anyone who can make it should!  Beautiful downtown with great food and shopping.

Hope to see some of you there

26th Annual Great Lakes Kite Festival
Grand haven, MI is a great place to fly for us Mid-westerners. A great festival in a nice, family friendly town. This has been a family event for my family for years and we always look forward to it. I'll be flying just south of the shower house. Look for my Spikey  ( old photo but still one of my favorites!) Smiley Smiley Smiley
