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".

Here's what I use for my powerkites...

Holds all 8 of my powerkites as well as my sport foils.. Has straps which I padded to carry like a backpack..

I intentionally left the feet in the pic to provide scale..

I'm looking for a bag for my quads. Right now I have 5.. I have seen the suggestion to use a field hockey bag.. I've been looking on various forums and most of the pics have expired on older posts.

There are so many out there. Does anyone know a specific model they recommend that's around $40? If its much more than that I'll get a purpose made bag.. A lot of the online descriptions don't have pics, so it's hard to know how the pockets are divided.

I only met Stoney once, but he was a big part of the kite community. RIP

Best wishes to Laura and family.

(You can also get a sharp knife and cut it from a lorry.)

 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I bought a The North Face dufflebag clone at a local discounter (€15,-) which would be perfect as nose material. Mine is all black.

Also you can search online for a cheap Dry Bag. They are also made from this bisonyl truck-tarp material.
Bag below is from a Chinese webshop for less then 10 bucks shipped (no names are mentioned):

Rest in peace old friend.. Stoney was an absolute ambassador of kiting and touched many lives. Dorey Park will never be the same..

just found out that longtime forum member and GTWTW Kites customer Stoney passed away this past Wednesday.
here is an excerpt from a message sent out to Richmond Air Force Kite Club members:
"Some of you might know, some of you might not.  Our friend Stoney went to go fly kites with Terry Weds. night.  He is now at peace, while the rest of us are left to carry on his mission of getting people to the kite field! 
There are some plans being made, but are tentative for Sat. October 28th, and then a fly on Sunday October 29th.  As soon as these are confirmed and set, another email will go out.  Laura has asked that flowers NOT be sent.  If you're wanting to make a donation, please consider the Alzheimer's Association, or any charity of your choice."

RIP old friend
