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".

The Black Dog UL by Skydog Kites! Designed by Dodd Gross, Logo by Scott Sarakowski

What an honor! This award is voted upon by the attending retailers at the annual Kite Trade Show. Not many Sport kites have been awarded this in the past.
 
Skydog kites also awarded " Wholesaler/Manufacturer of the year"  which is an amazing achievement since we have only been in business one year, and we are looking forward to an exciting new year!

We wish to thank all of our awesome retailers for your continued support!

Congratulations Sky Dog and Dodd.

We know very little about this kite.

Could you tell us about the kite and its features?

Congratulations !

Was there a 2nd and 3rd place ? Who / what did they go to ?

Just trying to gauge the level of the competition for this prestigious award.

No 2nd or 3rd. Exhibitors place a card under the product they nominate, can be anything and is typically what they consider to be their best in the booth. Retailers at the KTAI, vote on the  product that impresses them the most and one they feel is right for their customers.

 It is a prestigious award to all exhibitors, maybe one of the most coveted besides Wholesaler of the Year,  because the product is voted upon only by the retailers that are present at the KTAI.

The Black Dog series consists of two models, standard (3/4oz nylon, 6mm carbon frame) and UL, (the one that won) (.5oz polyester sail, 4mm carbon frame) equipped for slack line tricking, yo yo stoppers, covered leading edges, weight system etc. featuring the sky dog logo.

Thanks again to those of you who took the time to come to the KTAI, Learn, mingle, and just be there, we were very happy you came and again, we appreciate you awarding us these two very prestiqious awards. And for me personally, never having missed a KTAI or Banquet out of respect for my fellow members for 20 years in a row, it was a real honor!

We will work even harder now to bring you even better products in the future.  Best wishes...
