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".

Congratulations Shannon.  If you haven't moved we're good on the shipping address.  What I will need is size and color choice (black or orange).  PM or email me the info and I'll order your shirt.

 Smiley Wow Thanks guys!  Smiley

Thanks John, for giving us a chance to "have my head in the clouds" and for once, with a purpose Wink

Thanks Steve for hosting such a contest and being a generous benefactor Cool

Thanks Prism, for the shirt!


Thanks everyone for posting their shots, some really beautiful shots here.

:Kiteslinger's 'Santa Lucia Mt' is just breath taking, what a view!
:Texanpilot's Cumulus from above is something most of us don't see every day, very cool
:KiteKings shot off his balcony... Mate just stunning!
:Randy and Chris's Mammutus shot's... Well I'm a big fan of Mammatus's in all their forms... and lets just leave it at that shall we Wink
:John's Rotor clouds, I've never seen such a formation, you can almost see what the wind would need to be doing to create it, good capture.... And as everyone knows all us kite geeks love to study 'the wind'.
And Obi's 'Morning glories', they're just plain cool, I've been in that part of Australia a couple of times but haven't seen anything like it, just awesome  Huh.

And to all the other submitters, thanks for sharing some of your views and landscape with us, some truly beautiful parts of the world recorded there!!

I think we all should have a greater appreciation of our natural surroundings, but then I'm preaching to the converted here I'm sure...

Anyway enough of my ramblings, time to send Steve an e-mail Wink

Thanks all!

Shannon  Smiley
