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".

The earthquake and tsunami of March 11 devastated much of Japan. As kitefliers, we all share the same sky, and now we need to help our friends in one of kiting's earliest homes. Please make a donation to our special Japan Kite Friends fund. Proceeds will be sent to the Japan Kite Association, for use in both humanitarian aid and for repairing damage to the Japan Kite Museum. All donations are tax-deductible. All donors will be entered into a drawing for some special kite prizes (to be held at the end of National Kite Month). Thank you for helping to keep Japan's kites flying! If you would like to help out by donating a prize, please contact Phil Broder. Already Jon Burkhardt and Barbara Meyer have agreed to donate kites. is donating 3-one year subscriptions.
This effort is being undertaken by the AKA, Drachen Foundation, and others in the kiting community. We urge you to help. All monies raised go to Japan, none will be kept. Reports indicate that all kiters are alive, no deaths, but many are in very difficult circumstances.

You can donate by using the donation button on our home page:
Or, by mailing a check to Box 1614, Walla Walla WA 99362. Make checks out to the AKA and note they are for the Japan Kitefliers Fund.
thanks much
