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".

NJSKC 2011 - July 16-17, 2011

Hello all,

Just wanted to remind everyone that the New Jersey Sport Kite Championships (NJSKC) is happening on July 16-17, 2011, at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ.  NJSKC is one of the coolest Eastern League and AKA events of the year!  The park is great, plenty of space, and it's proximity to the Hudson river provides for good winds.  Even better is the view!  The Statue of Liberty to one side, the Manhattan skyline to another, with Ellis Island occupying the space between.  It's a great spot, and Rosanna Rosanova and the Liberty High Spirits crew do a great job of putting on the event with extras like a hospitality tent and (usually) some sort of ancillary entertainment.  NJSKC will offer the full complement of outdoor AKA sport kite disciplines, and will be the final Eastern League (and for many, AKA) competition of the 2010-11 season.  Don't miss it!

For more information about NJSKC 2011, go to http://www.easternleague.net/NJSKC/.  You can also register for NJSKC by downloading the registration form at http://www.easternleague.net/NJSKC/PDFs/2011NJSKC.pdf.  Get it in quick!

I wonder if this is a competition-only event, or if there will be space for recreational fliers as well...

Kiting is fun & relaxing for me... I have enough competition to escape from during my work week.   Cheesy

In that case, Rob, come so that you can hang out with me, and I'll clear you a space to fly Smiley

Wow, Jared, you're making the trek ? I shouldn't complain about the 2-3 hours each way, I guess. Which day do you think would be better to come out for ?

The park is huge! There's plenty of room to fly if you're not competing. The best wind is from the southeast but anything from the south is still good. The worst is from the east and northeast coming off Manhattan.

great!, I feel the same way, my bride also "blessed the occasion" so I'll be up there with Jim Cosca for another fabulous time with our friends from up north.  You should consider competition, trial by fire, do or die,.... it's not about how you did but more about all the new friends you'll make by joining in.  You can still go out there and just make something up, you don't have to practice a formal routine (but without it you will probably not win or you're in too low of a category, ... don't worry the crowd will tell you when it's time to move up!) 
       ~~~ Be a soul-flyer and see what happens, ~~~ it's all good times!

Yup, last chance points-grab before the end of the season Smiley

I haven't attended the NJSKC event before, so I can't speak from experience as to which would be the better day to attend, but if I were to choose one based on the schedule, it would probably be Saturday, because you'll get both Master's Dual Line Ballet and Master's Quad Line Ballet, which are both a ton of fun to watch as a spectator.  On the other hand, if you're more interested in the pair or team flying stuff, or the non sport kite events (fighter kites & rok battles, time & weather permitting) then Sunday would be the better choice.
