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".

I've been asked by Ron Young, whom is the coordinator for San Francisco's "Family Days Kite Festival (FDKF)", to invite talented kite flyers, Kite Artist,  kite builders, Traction kiters, and kite boarders to this years FDKF.

  The dates for this year's 2010 FDIKF are, September 18-19, and will once again take place in San Francisco, California, USA, at Marina Green Park, next to San Francisco Bay, St. Francis Yacht Club, and a spectacular view of Alcatraz, and the Golden Gate Bridge.

  We would appreciate your attendance and participation at this year's 2010 FDIKF, and hope that you accept this invitation!

  We will be featuring all, specially invited kite flyers, on the official FDIKF website. Please reply to this official invitation, stating whether or not you will be able to attend. So that we can have the FDIKF webmaster place your information on the website, as one of the featured kiters, please e-mail me a photo of yourself, and brief kiting bio of your kiting achievements / expertise. If others are coming with you and will be flying, please have them e-mail me their kiting bio and picture too.

Contact me (Troy Gunn), at: T-Gunn@msn.com or +1-940-691-8522

This year we will have several field safety marshals patrolling the show kite and demo fields, to insure that no unauthorized persons enter the flying fields.

 We expect this year's festival to be the biggest and best ever!

The FDIKF website can be viewed here: http://www.fdkf.org
 
Sincerely,

Troy Gunn
Chief Judge and Kite Flyer Liaison

Don,
  Yes, there's plenty of room east of the kids kite building tent. Also, on Saturday there aren't any single line comps scheduled, and the center/demo field is open as well.

Don,

If you can make the event, definitely drop in on Troy, Ron & the gang.  I went last year, and had a great time.  I wish I could make it this year, but my schedule doesn't allow it. Sad

There's nothing quite so much fun as flying a mystery ballet with a stunt kite for about 400 excited spectators!

My saturday is a bit iffy..but my sunday is a definite.
Too bad you're not there Jared, maybe next year hopefully.  Cry

I so wanted to go try out the Hydra and Jinx you got there too. Probably will order me the Hydra as soon as Focus Kites are back into production of those.

But I'll definitely drop in on the gang, but as far as flying a mystery ballet, my straight lines sucks  Embarrassed , but if still allowed, I'll give it my best. hahaha.  Grin
