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".

Nice Troy, maybe we can talk Steve into making this one sticky?

Maybe not though since it's a tripod site with adds to other retailers.

Need to spend a little time clicking those links though, six clicks three dead links  Cry

So many free hosting sites have closed down

Thanks  Mike, it looks like I need to make some time and try and locate new urls for all the clubs that have moved their sites. Looks like a lot of them have moved. Cry

Yeah, I went through them all, sent you an email with the dead or moved ones I found, but I think some in that list are still active just the redirect has timed out. NCKC was still going up to a year or so ago.

I've spent the past few days checking every kite club link on my world kite club links page, and then searched and found the new links to many clubs, and any club that I couldn't find new links to, I deleted those links.

I've also added some brand new links in the process.

There are a lot more kite clubs out there that I need to add, but it will take time. There are hundreds of kiteboarding/kitesurfing club links out there, but I won't add them. I'm sticking to mostly traditional kite flying club links, but I do have a few traction kiting links listed already.

If anyone knows of anymore kite club website links that I should add, please send me, the club name, website url, and club province/state/country location, to:   TKOGunn at webtv.net

Looks like you added many new clubs, that's a great Troy. Sure nice to see such a complete and updated listing.

Couldn't find a thumbs up smiley so this will have to do

Now you just need to ask Steve to become the calender moderator and email all those clubs and get them to join & post any upcoming events to the calender  Cheesy

Gee Mike, sounds like you just volunteered to moderate the calendar / Kite Land Events board.

Mike,
  BTW - Thanks for pointing out the dead links for me. I had been intending to go thru them eventually, but Mr. Procrastination had me in his grasp! Wink

Thanks to google search for helping me locate missing links and replacing dead links of clubs. In the process of searching and replacing new club urls/links, I would search thru kite club's list of kite links, and almost every one elses club links were filled with dead links too.

I'm proud to say, that my world list of kite club links is currently the most up to date and current listings of any list of tradtional kite flying clubs. Cool


No thanks about moderating the club or kite land events forum, but like Steve suggested, you sound like the man for the job! Wink Grin

Are you going to accept the nomination (and second) Mike or do I need to put it to a vote?
