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".

Sounds like a community event like Chico's Kite Day. Always a lot of trash left behind here to, I can say it isn't left by the serious local kite flyers but the families who come out to enjoy the day with others in the community.

I can't remember the last time I left a broken $300 kite in a tree or on the ground or a $60 lineset laying around.

Sounds like somebody was upset there were people in their park, did a quick Internet search to find dirt on kite flyers and found an article on India's  Makar Sankranti celebrated January 15th or Pakistans Basant also celebrated at this time and read about the dangers of cutting line so used that to prove the point and keep people out of their park.

Like this is any different than any event where the public is involved, I am always surprised how much litter is left behind. I am amazed as to the amount that surrounds the garbage cans, like its OK to toss the trash at the can and not worry if it misses.

I used to have a retail store and one day I found sunflower seed hulls all around on the floor, I wonder if that person spits them on the floor in their house.
