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".

Can anyone advise how KiteMania and Treasure Island Sport Kite Festival events are different?  We are SLK fliers but enjoy the sport kite displays and can go to one or the other event. 

I do  know the Sport Kite competition is the focus of the January 13/14 event, but there are SLK fliers there as well--We attended this one last year (stayed at the Thunderbird Resort) so I know a little about it.

But I see Kite Mania is Feb 2-4 and that looks fun too but we have never been there:  Looks like it's more for the Tampa area kite fliers and their friends maybe?

Will there be lots of great kites to see at both gatherings (presuming the weather is good) or is one much bigger/smaller than the other or different is some significant way (other than the competition)?

Thanks for any advice.  J.

The Widow is a good value if it's anything like my Widowmaker. I'd definitely go for that.

Forum started April 2001.

The first few years were Nuts.   Cheesy Huh

This version didn't come along until almost 8 years later. Here's a view of some of the most active Nuts back then.

Wow deal on the E3 did not fly  Cry The saying if its too good to be true? Yoder probably has'nt changed much since 71. Been here since 96. Few more people and less cows and antelope. Buddy has a foil I can use next time some of the kids come out. So now I'm thinking Premier Widow and hq bebop. Any thoughts?

Wow, so as I'm reading this, I hit 13.13  That's' gotta mean something Huh Huh  Those youngsters on the board should realize this is forum 3.0, (or at least 2.5, I don't know how the Dan Whitney era rates)  Needless to say, some of us have been here a looooong time. We welcome all those similarly cursed Smiley
