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.

Well here we are looking at next week for this event, been alot of work, had some challenges, like the promoter backing out with the concerts. No worries we had so many request from local bands we had to cut them off, got lots of vendors, and lots of kite talent.

Hope some of you can make it
Sept 3, 4 and 5

Would love to be there but it costs so much to fly up there (almost US$3k), do remember to post loads of pics so I can relive the moment Kevin  Wink

What an epic event, I quad rocked it, Gibians art was all over the air. Penny was a blast, Scott Hampton had even more ground art, Everyone came together with an energy that made the event special for us, which made it special for the crowd. We are waiting for the final numbers but we think we may be better than last year crowd wise.

Props to Kevin Reynolds (with papa Mike) and Jug Buckles for their big kite displays, as well as Kent Kingston (tirelessly teaching spectators), and the local yokels too... Jeff Tomlinson, Todd Copeland and everyone else who worked it all weekend.

Definitely on my return list, if they let us come back... Thanks for putting on such a killer event Kevin. Smiley

Ok got a confirmed list here….

Steve DeRooy
Willow Robin
David Hathaway
Also
Spence Watson,
Penny Lingenfelter
Scott Hampton
Jug Buckles
Kevin Reynolds and his dad.
Simon Craft
Ron Bohart
Ron Gibian
Lots of local fliers
Big Kahuna Beach Party Friday night followed by fireworks, Neal Diamond impersonator Saturday night and again with the fireworks, BMX big trick Demos all three days, a 5 and a 10 k run and walk sponsored by the city of Syracuse, food, drinks and fun. This is the third year the kites have been involved and it just keeps getting better and bigger. Attendance for the last two years, (as reported by the Utah state parks) has been around 20 k each year.  We might be attracting a lot more this year. The event has grown and I want to thank the other members of the BOD for your support and helping to make this a premier Kite event for the intermountain west.
I really hope that some more of you can make it and if you are planning to attend and fly kites, please let me know so you can be on the main field. Since this event started, I have meet more new kite fliers out there and that is what this event is about. Introducing people to kiting and let them see what can be done with a kite. We will have a learn to fly field to get the kites in the hands of the people; we will be flying with people, not just for them.

Hope to see you there.
Thanks for your time and attention and your consideration
