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.

It was a Great day hanging with everyone, talking kites, flying, eating gourmet wieners...
I don't know if anyone took pictures, though I doubt it. There was very little time we were all busy, kites in the air, changing to heavier line, grabbing vented kites as the wind came up, pulling in the big stuff to prevent damage.
I have never been to Roseville and experienced lab grade winds before.
What a day! Wow!
Thanks all for a great day, Geo.

Anything planned for this year in Roseville?

Just curious as I'm fairly close.  I definitely need to check out this park.

Sorry to bump such an old thread.

Haven't heard on Roseville, depends on sponsorship, money was tight this year. Buljan isn't really a good place to fly, John (KingJ) has scouted about every suitable park or school in that area and could steer you to better area's. He has them marked on Google Maps but dang if I can find it.

We're only 90 minutes north of you. We get together the first Sunday of every month, 6-7 or more flyers,  although it was pretty much a bust last Sunday with half the flyers out sick but Denny, Rhonda and I showed up.

San Francisco is Sept 18th & 19th which isn't too far from you either.

I'd look in the opposite direction if I were you. Down in the S.River Rd. Antioch Ave. Jefferson Blvd. area. If you can get permission to fly in one of the many fields down there the wind is much better than it is up in the hills.
Davis has pretty good wind too.

Anyone interested in a road trip to west Fairfield next spring?  They are building a community park less than a block from my house.  Will have several acres of "multi-use" fields.  Winds are usually nice until mid May.  After that, winds will be in the 10-15 range minimum after noon.

looking at the map, it looks like that area that the wind almost blows the truck over, just north of Suisun Bay and Grizzly Bay. Past couple of trips for concrete job in Moraga the wind was blowing 25+ in that area, maybe the spring is different

King-J: That would be the place.  Winds are almost non-existent from October-April though.
