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".

On sunday October 19th, 2014th is our 22nd annual Kitetober Fest at Haulover Park (10800 Colin Avenue, Miami Beach, FL; 33154).

Hosted by Miami-Dade Parks and Skyward Kites, these free events feature demonstrations from longtime kite enthusiasts. In addition, there will be kite-flying competitions for both children and adults

We especially encourage folks that can make their kites in their traditional styles from countries they may want to represent. In years past we have had kites in the traditional styles of countries like The Bahamas, China, Colombia, Jamaica, Trinidad, Peru, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and many more. It is a fantastic way to celebrate the unique diversity of cultures that South Florida has.

LIVE ON STAGE: The fantastic musical talents of 21 Hearts, 1 Beat.

People of all ages are encouraged to come out to fly their kites, make their own kites for free or purchase an already-made kite. There is no limitation to the size and type of kite. Those who just want to watch can bring a blanket and enjoy the sight of hundreds of kites in the air and some great live music. Food and refreshments & kites will be available for purchase

Shoes and socks are recommended for our large, open, grassy field.

The Site  for Skyward kites says the fest is from 12-5pm. What time should we get there to a)help set up, b) get a good spot to park ourselves and fly from? Couple of SLK's and then some duals and a couple of quads. I do have some shorty 40-50ft lines... I will call Dan Ward on Monday if no one else knows and can post here. I will post any more details as I get them. Parking is $7. Flying Free!!!!
