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".

Adrian Conn .....Last week as posted on Single line Kites... The world lost a gem of a kite builder.  AKA has recognized him as the BEST of the Best many times over.  Many will miss him.  He lived in Canada across the river from Metro Detroit area.  He often found time to fly with us on Wednesday nites.  He would meet Stan at Belle Isle Michigan.  He could see Stans Monster kite from his side of the Detroit River and he'd pack up and join him.  Some were extremely close to him and will hurt with his passing.  Jon Trennophol ,Gary Maynard "Wind Jammers".  Were amongst those Adrian called "Friends"...  AKA will miss him as the Ambassador for our sport of kite flying.  His skills are seen in the first video and the second video is when he meet Wi Tien flying his birds...

A quick view of the AKA website has shots of his creations...

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO PAUSE THE VIDEO AND ADMIRE HIS CRAFTSMANSHIP...
