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".

So I went to http://www.nationalkitemonth.org/ and read about the world's longest month.

How to support this without getting too "organized".

I usually teach newbies on a regular basis. They learn on whatever I happen to be flying at the time. No beater kites. The last person taught was on this beauty:


Will you be supporting NKM? If so, please take the time to teach an interested party to fly. If they are children, make sure their parents are present and you ask permission (it helps I've found).

You might also pull out some long unaired kites and give them some flight time. You could find that they've gotten a lot better while resting in the dark.

Here are a few I've put back in the bag for NKM:

We always knew he was a star, but where did they get those kite pictures?  Roll Eyes

John, you should have turned them on to your other kite related hobby and provided some decent shots for them to use.  Wink

I offered the photos, but was told by the interviewing reporter (phoned in by me from Phoenix) that they had to take their own pictures.

They were to have hooked up with the Friday night crowd, but were in different areas if you can believe the reporter. He had as much interest in kites as I do in becoming a reporter. Overall, I thought he did a pretty good job, although I don't understand his interest in telling how many kites each shop sold per week.

Bambi is now worried we will be robbed for our kites. Hopefully, her fears will not be realized.
