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".

What a great event! I arrived a day early to help put up some kites for the media coverage. Winds were 10-12mph on Friday. News coverage was GREAT! Saturday was the big day and there was a great turn out! Winds were up there... around 15-20mph with justs to 26mph but at least it was not dead. We got everything up in the air and I know everyone enjoyed the sites!

As usual I did not get too many photos as I was so busy flying and talking to people. But here is a quick write up:
