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".

I updated my google maps today. When I used the street view I was surprised to see picture of me and my kites at Sherman park, Newman, Ca. where I fly every day. I was setting up my kites, a Rev Pro and two Prism Snapshot 1.2's. I'm just glad I wasn't picking my nose at the time Smiley

Yup, that's my truck, I would have washed it if I had known Google was going to be there Smiley Sometimes I lay on my stomach on the grass to rest, but somebody might get the wrong idea that I might be doing unspeakable things to the gophers Smiley

Nice park. Love the open space. Interesting how they seem to have blurred the license plate and what may be a bumper sticker.
