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".

I'm new the the stunt kite scene and will most likely need some pointers. I was hoping to find an existing group to join, but have been unsuccessful in finding one! Anyone in Austin on these boards?

There is a group in Dallas, DAKO, and I would be surprised not to find one still in San Antonio. With Zilker near by and a few other organized flys each year, I am sure that there is a group there somewhere.  Good luck and happy flying.

There is a team out of Austin, but can't remember the name. Fly in Zilker, someone will come by.

There's an Austin Based Yahoo group named "Central Texas Cloud Chasers" where most all of the Austin Area kite flyers have discussions about local, and state kite events and activities. Link is below.

The local stunt kite team is : Austin EOL.
