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.

Sent you an email Denny.  Its happening.  Me and George are doing all the set up for the kite field on Friday.  Looks like John and his wife Theresa? are coming. We have had a decent turn out of flyers from the fun fly group, Berkeley kite wranglers the last few years and it usually ends up being a huge fun fly type of set up.

OK Anthony is the event on Saturday then? Love to spend a day with you, John, Terry, Denny & George but the forecast is looking as brutal as up here. 111* with 3 MPH winds?

Sorry for the slow reply Mike, been hectic getting things set up.  The festival is going on tomorrow too from 6 am to 3pm and should be better winds than today.  114 and 1mph steady if that today and it was miserable.  Balloons start going up at 6am and launch around 630 on to about 8am and kites go up as soon as we get wind. I sent Denny a parking pass to pass along to all of you if you want to come and John has one too.

Sad to say last year’s Color the Skies festival will be the last. I think we all did what we could to keep it going but the Chamber of Commerce has decided it wasn’t worth the effort.
