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".

lookin' good, lookin' good. you said the fabric on the first one was kinda stretchy, boy does it look it.

fitting folded dacron around curves really tested my patience, both on inside and outside curves, but just take your time, checking your fit often.

you certainly didn't take it easy first time out. that's a lot of curves and panels, but it looks like you're doing great. keep it up.

hey when the apocalypse comes and the only ride out of town are the angels on unicorns you may want to have identified yourself as kindred by flying a kite with their symbol on it.

... just sayin'
