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".

Hard to believe that was 13 years ago ... I was "working" for Dan back then (the coup didn't happen for 3 more months).

One of the things I miss most is being able to fly all the cool new kites.

If you've never flown one of Ken's kites you really do owe it to yourself. I referred to the Mamba as "The Gold Standard of Kites". The kite I measured all kites to for build quality and the sheer joy of flying.

When you talk to a Blue Moon owner 3 things are going to come up ... the quality of the craftsmanship ... the connection you feel to the kite when flying and what a great guy Ken is (who is hating this right now ... bless his heart Wink).

Do not pass up this opportunity to own one of Ken's creations (you can thank me later)

You are absolutely right,  One of my biggest regrets is that I didn't get to your shop to meet Ken and have him teach me how to build a kite.  Some lucky folks did..  When I fly my BlueMoon kites it is always incredible. 

Ken doesn't just build an awesome kite he makes a work of art.

For reasons unknown, the God's are smiling on me this week.

Just taken delivery of a BMK Muse from stapp59, and now this awesome news. I sadly missed snagging a BMK Black Mamba by a week or two way back then, I wont be letting this happen again.

Welcome back Ken, order will be in over this coming weekend  Smiley
