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".

I suppose we'd better get it underway  Wink

Main site is here, VF12 page here and the all-important-but-not-long rules are here.

I'll see what I can do about sweetening the pot with a few more prizes. Any of you could help with that if you like.

I'd like to contribute.

I'll start a pot of GWTW Kitebucks with a $10 credit card swipe for zippy8 to use however he sees fit.

Others, please feel free to add to the kitty.  Smiley

Oh... you meant for VF. OK, we can do that too.

Many thanks John.

Oh yes... as you kicked this off, you get to decide how it is to be "won". Pick any criteria you fancy but as it's for GWTW KiteBucks™ how about a random draw of US entrants ? But don't let me influence your decision  Wink

Mike,

Thanks for the honor. In that case, how about what I suggested already:

"zippy8 to use however he sees fit"

I'd go make an entry now except the gusts to 50mph might make my Vapor a little hard to backspin.  Roll Eyes

Finally got around to thinking something up:-

Some GWTW KiteBucks, from a kitty jar started by John Chilese, to the winner of an open draw of all entrants who have registered at the new GWTW forum.

How's that ?  Wink

It's been a week... have another video. Maybe you have to force the aspect ratio to 16:9 for some goddess forsaken reason.

I'd like to tell you more about the latest prize additions but some kite world superstars can be so slow to reply to e-mails.  Angry

To date just 7 people have lobbed their names in the general direction of the ring.

Hi all
My name is Andy I am quite new to freestyle flying I live in Oxfordshire UK.
I have decided to enter VF12.Although I am new to freestyle flying (if you look at my entry you will agree) I have lots to learn. So I have joined the forum for two reasons obviously to have a chance to win some GWTW KiteBucks, and also for getting information. I know I am not going to win any competitions with my entry but it will give me a chance to reflect and compare over time. I can look back and hopefully see improvement.
With Regards to filming you need to find someone willing to stand and film you, I would never be able to stay in a fixed window there would be to much time out of frame so a tripod would be out for me. I was pushed to enter by someone that filmed me and was kind enough to edit it as well “thanks Sub”.
Cheers
Andy
