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".

All those mags and the Drachen Foundation publications reside on all of my computers even though I have paper versions of them all, searching electronically is so much easier. I pull one up pretty often when I'm just sitting around in the van with no web connection. Sure wish John could work out the rights to American Kite & get that up too.

~8.5" foot so it would be the NBK.

i found: RBK ~16'
           NBK ~8-9'
           NLK ~6.5"

I am putting those as ranges because the ones i have are all over the place...they are 20 year old kite so......but the original advertisement i found in SKQ was 8.5'

Kites kayaks & corgis again!!!
