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".

My wife found this article on the internet.  It is a must read for all serious kiters.  As a member of the senior community I am glad I just signed up for martial arts training.

Check this out and make sure you read the comments.

Okay, I'm still laughing about the paper's tagline - "Reporting the truth whether we know it or not"  Cheesy

I was there and thought the melee was just a mosh pit with folks jamming to the kite teams' music that was playing. Some in that crowd can really shake it! I had a dualie so the SLK flyers just ignored me and I walked right around the scene.  Never knew there was so much danger so close.  Yikes!   Huh

Next year I'm going all Kevlar for sure (and taking more video) ...
