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".

Wildwood 2001?

Was 2003/2004 the break-out year for real trick flying with Stoke in the Park? It certainly was not 2001?

I have seen the World Cup video for 2005 which was AMAZING.

Wow, the flying wasn't that smooth, but the winds did look kinda high...

It is pretty interesting to see the Convention Center under construction, I didn't realize it was that new.

The pilots were ready ... unfortunately the kite designs in 2001 were all still prehistoric.

For sure ...  Wink Wink Wink

We need more of this at kiting events if we want the sport to grow. The most fun I have had kiting was the hot tricks comp at the last Eastern League event.
