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".

For someone else I fixed this Level One Genesis Evo, his bike fell through it  Embarrassed . I rplaced the mylar panel.



And another one. A Benson Gemini. Big rip in a black panel and the mylar panels were totally pulverized. I replaced that with white Icarex.

Tune in to the quilting shows running Saturdays on PBS. Fons & Porter, and Sewing With Nancy. Cool

I will not be making name tags this year, so everyone should make or bring their own

Not necessarily a beater kite, but a repair none the less...

Flying in close quarters and landed on a rusty old lawn chair. I can't stand taped sail repairs:

Simple? You want it with a velcro closure? Or a foldover end? Inner sleeve for small spars or standoffs? Should it also have room for lines and handles? Maybe a nametag on the exterior?

Ain't no such thing as simple.  Cheesy

My 2 cents - the TI Festival is a festival.  In other words, schedules, competitions, announcer, performances, etc.  KiteMania is more like Kite Party (East) - i.e. laid back, no schedule, no competitions, etc.  I.e. just hang out with other kite people and fly as much or as little as you want.  There are a lot of kite flyers (especially quad flyers) going to KiteMania this year due to the tribute to Rich Comras and the Kites Against Cancer auction.  Many well known kite builders are donating to the auction.  I'm headed to Kite Mania this year.

By the way, that beach is very wide and there is plenty of room for SLKs.  I'll probably bring a few (although they might never make it out of the bag once I set up a rev).

Beauty. Thanks for posting it. My first time through was with sound almost off, which was a mistake.

My doc wants me to do 150 minutes of cardio a week. That is a LOT of 360 side slides, but it would be a very nice way of doing it.

(Particularly at my level of proficiency. Or lack thereof.)

I wondered whether a simple kite sleeve might be a good way to start sewing.

However, I have not gotten around to it yet...
