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.

Anyone attend the Berkeley Kite Festival this past weekend? How was it. Did it have a good number of people attend? I was hoping to go, but going health issues with my uncle prevented me from going.

I attended. As it was my first time, I can't attest to the crowd size although I did hear it was less than expected. It was fun, very windy as the breeze filled in. It's quite a spectacle watching all the people buy kites and then proceed to tangle them up and get them in the way of the pro's.

I competed in novice sport kite competition and my wife and I flew some of our single lines and trialed a new KAP rig I made just in time for the event.

Overall, pretty fun experience, and I always love visiting San Francisco

I was there both days. Saturday was a bit light on attendance, but Sunday more than made up for it. Lots of nice kites and great flying. Grin
