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?  forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

14.  Thou shalt not max out thy Visa or thy Mastercard nor shalt thou empty thy Savings account to purchase more kites.

15.  Thou mayest max out thy Visa and Mastercard as well as empty thine savings in the purchase of lavish gifts for the appeasement of thy spouse when kites have already been purchased.

Wrong.
Red is on the port (left) side.
Its, red right returning.
If you see red on the right side you know the boat is returning or coming at you.
