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 you fly from the fishing shack?

Monday we are expected to have a high of -12F. My brother in SoCal is expected to have a high of 78F. 90 degree difference. That's friggin' crazy.

A few pics from our considerably warmer New Years Day fly at Garry Point BC.


It was about 8C, not chilly at all.  Wink

Late afternoon fly on Lake Hiawatha with a Devotion to Motion conyne and a 55 ft. WB dragon. Temps are headed down to well below zero...
There are a few more shots from this outing, I get 'em up.



From earlier in the afternoon...







Tomorrow's challenge will be getting out in > 10 below temps and that's without the windchill factor   Shocked

Hi da_zubr, couldn't resist doing a little adjustment with your great flying image. That sure looks like a barren landscape in the middle of nowhere! Wow! What a place to fly  Smiley
