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".

Yea and the winds were good too Sad  Oh well I'm going to talk my other half into going to this event. Looks like a good set up from what they have listed.

I saw some of your team videos Mark and I look forward to seeing it in person.  You guys are good and the only pairs team I have seen do synchonized axels.

Wish we could make it George but it's been a few hectic weeks with Washington for WSIKF then New Mexico for Rhonda's daughters wedding. We'll miss hanging out with everybody for sure. Hope you all have a great time and gentle breezes.

I just wanted to thank everyone for coming out and making this a a successful event. All of you put in a lot of effort and the result showed in the faces in the crowd as well as the funds and  awareness generated for the Children's Hospital. A special thanks to Ozonejim and Tony for helping with the set up.
I didn't have a chance to take many pictures, so I hope one of the others will post what they have.

To Team Too Much Fun... Having you guys out was a pleasure in spite of our audio difficulties. "Things to work on for next year".

Thanks again, Geo.
