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.

This is still in flux but looks to be gelling around this Sunday at Liberty 9:30AM - 12:30PM.

An excerpt from an email from an associate producer affiliated with the show that was posted to the LHSO14B newsgroup:

".. I am writing from the British television company that is making the 'Sci-Fi Science' series for the Science Channel.

As I mentioned on the telephone, we would be very grateful if your members might consider getting involved in some filming that we're hoping to do in either Liberty State Park, NJ (opposite the Statue of Liberty, as you know) or in Seaside Heights, NJ. We would ideally like to film a number of people flying kites in one of these parks on Saturday 17th April. The filming would take approximately two to three hours and the time is still to be confirmed. We would not need people to speak on camera but simply to be filmed flying their kites with our presenter.

Our series is presented by the eminent theoretical physicist Dr Michio Kaku, and it explores the physics behind some of the most exciting ideas from Science Fiction, asking whether some of these concepts and inventions might one day become a reality. The filming on 17th would be for a programme exploring how we might one day create a new kind of habitable solar system.

Might it be possible to ask your members to e-mail me if they might be willing to take part in some filming with us that Saturday? I am still working on filming permissions for these locations but would be very grateful if I might be able to get an initial sense of whether a group of your members would be free and willing to give us a hand with this.

I look forward to hearing from you... "


Currently it appears that a fun fly is breaking out around this and if the TV people show up so much the better.

If you need an excuse to get out of the house, well then, here you go.

Update to follow..

wouldn't it be nice if the tv people could also schedule the wind?

i love me some Michio Kaku. He, Brian Green, Brian Cox, and Neil Degrasse Tyson are my favorite rock star physicists.

Sci Fi Science; seen the show, not my cup of tea, but to meet Michio Kaku and fly kites would be cool. Hope you go represent and help change peoples minds about kites being only for kids.

Just confirming that this is on.

The producers have asked people to get there around 9AM just before they begin filming.
