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".

[Inspired by a recent post]

I can remember the once oft used "Prism fanboy" although I'm not sure it's a collective noun anyway...

But I'm sure there are, or could be more out there...

 Undecided

Allow me to warm up with:

For a small number of Talon's seen flying together: A clutch of Talon's.

And cos it's fun:

A Unicorn of Berkley Specials (For Must86)

I think it should be a Cornucopia of Berkeleys...............however I do see the unicorn-rainbow connection.  Isn't it spring there, Shannon?

It used to be a "glee club" of Prism owners.

To add to the collections:

An enumeration of (Prism) Es.
A magic act of Illusions.
An illusion of Mirages and Hypnotists.
A layer of Ozones.
A whiff of Vapors.
An unlikelyhood of Blue Moons.
A summit of Premiers.
A nest of Spider kites.
A conspiracy of Area-51s.
A pairing of Geminis.
A haunting of Ghosts and Phantoms.
A troop of Pro Dancers.
A confusion of: Matrixs, Quantums, QPros, Widows, Widow Makers...
An aspiration of newbies.


...You can tell that I am bored from packing for a business trip.   A few more:

A dizzyness of axels.
A fall-out of fades.
An arcade of slot machines.
A tangle of tip wraps.

In Germany its not uncommon to see formations of Cosmic adventurers. And once in a while there will be a group of Zeros at the field. Gatherings of Sissies have been seen but they're mostly limited to the UK and Europe. And since this started in Oz I can't neglect the obvious, a colony of Exiles.  Cheesy
