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".

 Smiley Not a bad ambassador for that there 'pastime'.

The audience were fantastic, and I liked the judges comments, they all seemed to actually 'get it'. Which in itself is a testament to Connors abilities and also importantly, the sentiment/reason behind his desire to fly.

He gets a yes for me too!

Best of luck to him.   Smiley


He almost convinced me that Revs were cool  Wink

Great to see a better reception for Connor's performance than for Scotty's last year.....

Great job!!!!

So...how fast can Ben get Connor a rev for this.....i am guessing that his kite is not one of the official indoors....

Lets see you keep this momentum going Connor!!!!

I just facebooked amy, haha. This is wonderful! Great piece too, espically for the episode.

I must say though, my favorite part is the end- "When I'm flying nothing can touch me, not even X's"

Yeah Connor! Best of luck to him and Amy in the future shows!

The show doesn't allow logos to be shown.

It's a real Rev.  In fact, Ben DID give it to him.  They had to cover the Rev logo for the show.  The bike guy had tape covering the make of his bike as well.
