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".

Ah, now we know why...it's to avoid having to decide which color to fly.

Not really!, doesn't have anything to do with superiority. What in the world gave you that idea?. All these kites were made in the USA except for the Benson though.

it's a george bernard shaw quote which in more recent times christopher hitchens would cite.

in this case though, it smells more of troll bait than intellect.

I thought it was a Western bulldogs thing, Down here football team colours are a far more likely target of "colourbedazzeling".

Monsieur, under the heading of 'popular jingoistic colour schemes' It's a quite marketable set though....  Wink

this question was in my head while packing yesterday 90 of 451 kites
 made the pick - flew in 3 fields in 2 states - and could not decide what to fly

packing kites - the 7 P's poor proper planning leads to pi** poor performance

why so many kites - 25 years of buying selling trading - always tough to pick what goes ----- make today a great day
