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".

Received this from Maggie Vohs at the KTAI yesterday...

Long time KTAI member, and good friend to many of us, Erv Crosby of Four Winds Kite Shop in Everett, WA has passed away.

Gail and Erv Crosby have been loyal KTAI members since 1992, with Gail serving on the KTAI Board of Directors for several years; and Erv always a positive, active force in his own retail endeavor; and in helping others. I think many KTAI Exhibitors can attest to the help Erv has given them over the years at Trade Show; always eager to help with set up and tear down; and to disassemble and pack endless stacks of kites.

Gail and Erv are the embodiment of what you want in an association member. They are honest, forward thinking, can-do people. They quickly reached out to others to share their kiting experiences, and reveled in the enjoyment of kiting and the people in the business.

KTAI will miss Erv, and our thoughts are with Gail and their family. In addition, Erv was a personal friend of mine; a smiling face you always looked for whenever you were at a kite event I will miss him.

Maggie Vohs
Executive Director, KTAI

If you want to call or send something, please feel free to do so. I spoke with Gail this morning and she allowed me to publish this contact information

Gail Crosby
4002 Federal Ave.
Everett, WA 98201

Erv owned Four Winds kite shop and manufacturing (Nebula, NOS, etc), always super friendly and very knowledgeable about the industry... Erv's memory lives on... My heart goes out to Gail and the rest of his family.

Sorry if this was a duplicate post, I didn't see it anywhere else.
