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".

A group of lions is called a "Pride" and a group of fish are called a "School."  Crows a "Murder."....
What do you call a group of kites?

 I always thought quiver referred to the bag or container that held the kites.

Mass Ascension at kite festivals. Stack or arch if kites on one line.

Team is used for a group of fliers. "Mess" of kites if kites are all tangled up on the ground  Cry, sometimes "Ballet" if kites are in the air  Wink.

A group of Swallow-tailed Kite birds is known as a "brood", "kettle", "roost", "stooping", and "string" of kites.  Cool

"Stooping" seems appropriate, especially when learning stunt kite tricks!!!  Embarrassed  Roll Eyes  Huh
