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".

Once again,  I am so proud to announce that the Legendary WINDJAMMERS Kite Team will be performing at the Don Jacobs Toyota Family Kite Festival on May 29th and 30th.  The Windjammers International Kite Team, began with the simple love of kite flying. In the early 80's regularly to entertain passersby on a Belle Isle, a small island in the center of the Detroit river. Later they wanted to see the world, while having fun flying kites. Every year, their audiences grows bigger, while continuing to discover new avenues in kiting, ideas. Come enjoy the exciting "World of Kiting"….Besides being really great kite flyers, they are really nice guys as well.  Welcome!!!!

I am thrilled to announce that Yves Laforest and his team of Canadians will be bringing some really new, really large and really exciting kites to the Family Kite Festival, and sponsored by our friends at Dole Juices.  The Watermelon and the Lemon Lime are out of this world and Dole will be handing out free samples to all.   I cannot tell you what the new kites are, as I am sworn to secrecy, and they might hurt me, but they are really big, really colorful, and did I say really expensive kites.  Suffice to say, we can all expect the GREATEST LARGE KITE SHOW EVER IN THE MIDWEST!
