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".

Now I have a chance to get a Mamba after delaying too long or so I thought.  I remember a photo of a group of Mambas (and their pilots) - maybe from an early Kite Party.  Does any one have a copy?  There were a few in bright red/gold colors that I liked.  Steve Thayer

If red and gold are on separate kites you might be thinking of two who weren't at kite party, but "Fire and Ice" pairs team fly them.

I came up with that scheme a few years before he made those.

I was overstepping my bounds, and said we would have a limit of 50

made (1 for each state) and that it would be inscribed with the state name.

So hurry and get your state order in. I had about 4 people signed up on the

Forum when Ken came on and said that would not be happening. Of course,

he started making them years later telling the first buyer, "John is not

going to be happy."
