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.

Think about hitting a local event.
Maybe Whidbey. Nice laid-back atmosphere, and they'd treat you like visiting dignataries.  Wink

I like the logo but the cursive writing kind of muddies the name a bit for a t-shirt.  Upon first glance, i wouldn't be able to read it.  other than that, really awesome job!  I look forward to seeing a dual line team at kp10! 

kp10 will be a big one  Smiley
