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".

Use the TSA to your advantage....

I have a starter pistol for all my cases. All I have to do upon check-in is tell the airline ticket agent that I have a weapon to declare...I'm given a little card to sign, the card is put in the case, the case is given to a TSA official who takes my key and locks the case, and gives my key back to me.

That's the procedure. The case is extra-tracked...TSA does not want to lose a weapons case. This reduces the chance of the case being lost to virtually zero.

It's a great way to travel with camera gear...I've been doing this since Dec 2001 and have had no problems whatsoever.


and a starter pistol is only 20 bucks or so and you do not need any sort of permit.....then the TSA wants to make certain that a bag that has a weapon in it does not disappear!

now..no bringing the guns with you to the festival......that be baaaaad!!!!

i have seen fist fights occur at kite fields before...not so good...then even if you pull any sort of weapon -even a starter pistol - that gets you into more trouble.....
"yeah officer, the kite guy pulled a gun on me!"
