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.

Hey All,

I got my GF a croquet set for her birthday.  It got me thinking.  Has anybody ever done Rev Croquet?  I think it could be a cool addition to Rev games.  Any thoughts?  Everyone would start at the same point and would have one jump to get through/to the next hoop.  For hoops I was thinking a banner with a tail hoop.  I remember Dean Jordan made a banner about 20 years ago that had a big hole in it and the idea was to fly a dyal likr through th loop and do 3 movements from expert precision. 
Any thoughts?

patrick- 20 years ago? you were what 5 years old? ;P

i remember seeing a hoop that someone made like a big hula hoop...banner was before my flying time though....

Art St. Pierre has been known to do lots of funky things like the croquet idea....
i would start off with a rubber playground ball...should roll easily and not need a huge input to get it moving.....

I never thought about an actual ball.  There are there huger 4' rubber balls.  Although I do believe that a full game could take a LOOOOOOONG time. 

ps. I was 10.
