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".

Remembering Jim Strealy. Today Jim would be 75 years old. I'm positive he would still be flying kites of all kinds and attending kite events everywhere he could. I'm pretty sure he would still be having a cold cerveza of this variety.

Believe that's a PKC Wren that originally belonged to Jeff Howard.  Forgot where I read the story, but a considerable amount of nagging was required to get Jeff to part with it.  Don't recall if the nagger was Jim or if there was another person in the ownership chain.
