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".

This is a vid I did after we met downstairs of "Kites and Fun Things" Plymouth Michigan this past winter.  Jon invited a gang to learn to build "Pointer" kites.  We had Pizza and Cannoli's.  Jon Trennepohl is one of the nicest guys you can ever meet.  His dedication to this sports is beyond what we all understand.  His designs of "The Widow Maker"  and other kites are world recognized and have given us all heck in our marriage's. hehehe.

 The video also shows carftsmanship of Wayne Brunjes.  As many might not know Jon and Wayne work together on kite designs.  Google both names for more info.  If you stop the video you can see Wayne's sewing ability on the two kites.  One kite is  a Fish and the other geometric pattern.  All sewen by hand by Wayne.  He also fly's the Lobster and the colorful Foil that pulls it up on the other Video's.  Enjoy !!

It's inspirational to see that such workmanship and talent can come out of a small cluttered shop, very much like mine. Gives me hope that someday I might get back to creating again.

I've always wanted to meet Jon, of course the one Kite Party we did was the one he missed because of other commitments.

Thanks for the voyeuristic trip.
