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".

We're only a couple weeks away from this year's fest at Grand Haven, Mich. Last year was the first time my lovely wife and I attended (it was our first kite event of any kind). Here's a  link to a video I put together to help explain to our friends back home what we saw:

Thanks, Jynx. We were quite glad we'd thought to borrow a friend's video camera for the trip! At the time we didn't even own one. I think GLKF is part of what convinced me to get our own.

I see you're from West Allis. One of our new kite friends, Paul K. of "Fire and Ice" is from there. Do you know him? We met him at Kites Over Branch County last year and just saw him last weekend at a small event in northern Indiana.

We are very much looking forward to this year's GLKF, especially since we've gotten to know a lot of the folks since last year.
