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".

We fly at Wildwood Park.  It is at the entrance to Upper Bidwell.
Take the East Ave. exit off 99 and head east until you come to the roundabout.  The entrance to the park is right there.  We will have single lines flying so we'll be easy to spot.

I don't know about anyone else but I had a good time.  Cool
It was nice meeting dolphinboy and kind of him to let me fly a couple of his kites. Good to see everyone else, I've missed the last few.
This was my favorite picture of the day  Grin


Here's a few more.

Great slide show Denny Cool, it was great to get together with you all, had a great time, Thanks Denny for letting me try out the TNT love it, it is next on the list unless I can quit smokin and the wife gets it for me first. Would also like to thank James for allowing me to try out his kites, I wish I would have tried it out before it got so windy. Thanks Steve, Chris, Mike, Rhonda, Ted, Bob and anyone else I may have forgot for the hospitality, Great Friends, Great Time Flying, Can't wait to next months Fly.

I had so much fun meeting everyone in person and flying some new kites that I didn't want to leave.  Nice wind and even though it picked up quite a bit it was still a blast. Denny, that TNT UL was sweet too Wink

Peace

Great photo Denny.
Thanks to everyone for coming out.  One of the best flies we've had in a long time.
Nice meeting and hanging out with you James.  Always fun to connect forum regulars (and customers) with a face.

Dang, looks like I missed out.  Ah well, next time.  I was flying with you guys in spirit.  I went out to the local field and flew one of my Flexifoil Super 10's and the Firestorm.  Did a little test run with those heavy duty lines on the Super 10, they worked out great!

Here's my horrible cell phone photo, heh:
