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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

The BIG deal was SKB hitting 1000. In those days we didn't know if the forum would melt down or what.

I don't know which is weirder, the pose, or that fact that Laurent is wearing shorts. It must have been hot that day, no sweater either...  Cheesy

I think there should have been some disclaimer on this topic, did a spit take on the monitor laughing so hard at this shot

Ahh Dodd vs JW,so many stories there. Who has the morphing e2 shot?

How about the arrival of the nirvana?, the kite to save the world

The prism "glee club", Ah so many cults, so much kool aid, the more things change the more things stay the same  Cool Lips sealed

What's scary about that shot is Dodd checking out kmac's butt.
