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".

Folks, we finally managed to get just a couple of dates in advance of the NASM. We had hoped for more/better (talk to me privately if you're interested), but here's what we have:

Wednesday evening, March 9th, from 5:00 to 7:00 PM.
Saturday, March 12th, from 10:30 AM to 7:00 PM.

Scheduling with the church this time around has been far more challenging than it should have been, IMHO, but at the moment this is the best we could arrange. The long session on Saturday is good, as it will allow folks to come out as best suits them.

Here are the specifics, as usual:

As before, these sessions will be at the Bay Area Community Church in Crownsville, MD (address below).
Here are the conditions for participation: With fewer dates this year, we will be exercising firm floor and time control so as to maximize all fliers' practice time. Fliers will be required to sign standard AKA waiver forms for participation, and participants will be responsible for ante-ing their share of the church's usage fee, which for us is $100 per event/day. Unfortunately we couldn't make participation free. So based on that figure, calculate $10 each if there are ten fliers....more if less fliers, less if more fliers.
The space is roughly the size of a school gymnasium. Also note (important), the ceiling is approximately 30 feet high, however there is a lighting and A-V bank hanging down on one side to approximately 20 feet high. Based on our experience flying here, we recommend using 12-foot or shorter lines. (You can probably get away with 15-foot lines, if careful, but you'll certainly be safe with 12'.) These lengths are about what we generally have to fly on at the Air and Space Museum.

Bay Area Community Church is at 884 Chesterfield Road, Annapolis, MD. Despite the Annapolis address, it's actually closer to Crownsville, just near the Maryland Renaissance Festival grounds.
