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".

I love the move where you are "pushing" the SLK. SWEET!

I need to get some indoor practice in. John, where do you practice?

There is a rec center near me but they charge $5/visit and the deal I have is that I'd move off the court if people were playing basket ball. The other place is actually a mall where all but a few bars and restaurants close in the evening. There is a large atrium off to one side. I've flown there once but I suspect as soon as security found me, I'd be asked to leave.

Sadly, I don't have anywhere to practice, never have... Just get it when I can, during the events.

Closest we come around here otherwise, is hit and run street flying on the rooftops of parking garage buildings. Smiley

Thanks John.

Very crisp and strong flying.  Smiley

Any stories from the "hit and run" parking garage days?

Ya never know....give it another go and hopefully the security folk will find you. If they are cool and you explain what`s going on they may think you`re so wacko they`ll leave you alone with your bliss.
Happened to me....a few years ago they used part of a mall for tai chi after early closures. I took a small deca and started flying one evening. The security and janitorial staff were so bemused they left me alone....crazy fellow flying a kite indoors....leave him be!! Tai chi folks were bemused as well as my flying was like tai chi on speed....

I've had similar experiences in other venues... Demonstrated skill, manners and respect go a long way sometimes. Smiley
