Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
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 have come to learn in the  past couple years that there is more to just putting a string attached to some paper and  calling it kite flying. 
I remember my neighborhood as a child.  Every tree had kites caught in them... I lived inHarper Woods Mi. at the time.   
I have flown  a Delta Convey for twenty years same kite.  Not every year but a lot of years a few times a year.  Couple years ago I started to fly kites again and  bought some nice  Deltas at Kites and Fun Things.   Then some line laundry.  Then a large Power sled.. then a Jordan 50... then a Delta Drive....
But more so I started to have a new group of friends.  I live 45 minutes away by expressway,but so what.  We laugh, we joke , we learn.  This video is really about all of us who come together here on this  site.  Guys from Australia, Ireland,England,Singapore, Germany Huh   This is nothing but good.

[sarcasm] i like how the lady at fault "forgave" the woman and child who she rear ended with her car. uhh ... if only we could all forgive those who we've wronged. [/sarcasm]

i'm very grateful to have found a group who reserves judgment and shares enthusiasm for kites unabashedly. they add immensely to the experience and enjoyment of flying. the friday fly with friends is always the highlight of my week.
 thank you guys.
