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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

Perhaps if you dipped your kite in water and froze it first......or maybe setting it on fire would do it......

A wind dance and ritual sacrifice may be the ticket.  Cheesy

Kind of the reverse theory?

Blasting, billowing, bursting forth
With the power of ten billion butterfly sneezes
Man, with his flaming pyre
Has conquered the wayward breezes

Climbing to tranquility
Far above the clouds
Conceiving the heavens
Clear of misty shroud

Higher and higher
Now we've learned to play with fire
Go higher
And higher
And higher

Vast vision must improve our sight
Perhaps at last we'll see an end
To our own endless blight
And the beginning of the free

Climb to tranquility
Finding its real worth
Conceiving the heavens
Flourishing on earth

Higher and higher
Now we've learned to play with fire
Go higher
And higher
And higher

Yeah, Yeah, I'm obscenely stupid.
I'm sorry that I have thrown pearls before swine.
I should have known.

Ok, don't try it. What do I care?
I'll just keep on doing what I'm doing and flying while you geniuses
are sitting around complaining about the lack of wind and how good it was last week.

What do Leonardo Da Vinci, Launoy and Bienvenue, Paul Cornu, Etienne Oehmichen, Igor Sikorsky and the Wright Brothers all have in common? They were all laughed at. You just may be on to something, even if most doubt you!!!
