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".

Flyers from the 90s!
Quick question about 3 kites that seem to be forgotten that I grew up on. When I started flying at the age of 4, my first 'real' kite was a Bob Childs Skynasaur/Goblin. When I grew out of that I moved to a Hot Avalanche, then a Mosaic. I have almost no recollection of these kites and can't find pictures of them anywhere, especially the H.A. Does anyone have any info on these kites or pictures? After these kites I moved directly to HQ and Skyburner, leaving these 3 kites as my learning models so I'm afraid to say they're long gone. Especially the Goblin. Any info would be awesome! Thanks guys
