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".

Nice. Sounds like you have plenty to keep you guys busy. My son flew the Snapshot 1.2 for the last few years, he used to think driving the kite into the ground was great fun, so the Snapshot was the best answer. The WUMP from a high speed death dive would make him laugh like crazy, and he figured out how to get it to fly after crashing purposely. He finally graduated from that stage, thank goodness. Even though I knew he couldn't hurt the Snapshot, the crashes were still unnerving...

BTW, even in 25mph+ wind, the Snapshot 1.2 has very little pull.

Matthew is now the proud owner of a Premier Widow.  He shelled out $100 for a used like brand new Widow.  My Widow Maker gives him all he can handle on windy days, so this will be perfect for him.

I asked this just this past sat when I called to order some parts. Soon is what I was told, maybe April. Jon is meeting someone in Italy to finalize some stuff. Im pretty sure she said Italy, though I dont know whats in Italy.

Cervia is what's in Italy. Big Kite Festival

Carl Robertshaw is the someone (the designer of the kite)

As always, it was fun to talk with Jon about the development of a kite. His enthusiasm is infectious!

If you're in the St. Louis area be sure and come out this weekend!
There will be crafts for the kids and a paper airplane contest, the kids get to throw their paper planes from the top of the tower to see which will fly the farthest. The tower usually has some other craft vendors there as well.
The Gateway Kite Club will be there flying and teaching! Last year you could get some quad line instruction from the almighty Donna!
Hopefully since we are doing it later in the month the weather will be warmer than in past years.
March 25th 10-5
