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.

It's been a year since I've flown a kite which is due to my moving from the beaches of northwest florida to the Tampa suburbs.  The last time I flew was at Treasure Island last year.  I hope to see some flyers this next weekend.  Good winds all.

Great! I'm looking forward to it. It's a little early but the 10 day weather forecast looks good for MLK weekend. Hopefully it stays that way and we get some great winds!

I'm coming to TI this year for the first time, bringing a few kites to fly. I hope to meet a few of you there.

Since you're coming all the way from MN, I hope the weather is exceptional since it's your first trip there for the event! It's a real nice played-back event! I've been around 7 times to date and most years the weather/winds have been good! Last year it was exceptional! Let's hope the no-rain forecast holds and we have great winds again this year!

See you there! Come over and introduce yourself. I'll be flying a few different kites but you should recognize the Organics!

If anyone is planing on attending and owns a Benson SuperFly ....I shore wouldn't mind giving it a spin!  Grin I might have a few you haven't flown that you might enjoy as well!  Wink

TISKC was awesome this year. If you were there, I'm sure you'd agree. If you weren't ....you missed a great time with lots of fun and some really great winds!

We had booked our room for next year's TI (Dr. MLK,jr Day) before the return flight home!   That's the kind of event it is for my family,..... oh sure, some folks don't like the AKA or all the rules and boundaries associated with a sport kite competition.  But their solution is to snub the efforts of this event coordinator and schedule a gig in a couple of weeks! 

When offered an opportunity to do demonstrations for the crowd, some individuals choose NOT to,.... then why are you standing in the middle of that darn field with your kites set-up?

Some folks even complained about the weather or the lack of wind or the hard sand, but I had a grand time and dearly wish the event to continue in the future so I can keep going and contributing.  I met new people and saw old friends again too.  Wife and I did a couple of night flights with lights, twice with deltas and another time alone with a Rev kite.

There's plenty of flying room for every style of kite, if we can just get along together.

Seriously? I guess I didn't here much of that complaining myself! This was my 5th time there attending of the last 7 years at TISKC and it was also the best wind/weather ...all in all that I've experienced there! The wind was a little on the light side at times but shifted and improved each day at some point in time during the day.
