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".

Rev Clinic @ 2009 Cape Fear Kite Festival
Friday, November 6, 2009 - Cape Fear, NC USA

This will be a one day clinic at the same location as and prior to the Cape Fear Kite
Festival, addressing individual, pairs and team Rev (quad) techniques for
NOVICE through MASTER level pilots, led by 10-time national multiline champion
John Barresi, captain of the professional sport kite performance team iQuad...
While the obvious focus is on Revolutions for their superior flight characteristics
and durability, Instruction will happily be provided to anyone with a kite that has the
essential quad line flight characteristics such as hovering, reverse, forward and
sideways flight.

The very nature of Rev flying, both individually and as a team is fun, relaxed and very
forgiving, so if you’re even the least bit curious, this is a premier opportunity to learn
from one of the most experienced and prolific Rev pilots in the world.
