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 am speechless, I hope to God that none of our friends are impacted, and say a prayer for all of the Japanese people. If you have a Japanese kite....fly it this weekend.

So many of you have contacted me that I wanted to send out this info.
My son, Tim and his wife Mai are okay. Tim was on a snowboard tour with their team boarders and was on the west coast of Japan.
Mai was at work in Tokyo. Mai was able to make it home around midnight their time. Their 20 year old condo is intact and had no damage. Only two items hit the floor or fell off their shelves two packages of VIA (hes a good Seattle boy).

CNN and Fox News channels are showing a major explosion at the Yakishima nuclear power plant north of Tokyo. Video clips show a large explosion followed by a very large cloud around the number 1 reactor. Speculation is that there is a melt down under way. They are waiting for monitoring equipment to confirm the release of nuclear material into the surrounding area.

The Japanese government is now confirming the explosion and release of radioactive materials at the site.  Prevailing winds are blowing from  the west, so it looks like for now that the radioactive materials will be blow out to sea for now.
