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.

Don, From my understanding there will be a TNT flying there Today Wink
I'll probably get there around 8:30 - 9:00 and I'll probably need to get out of there by 2:00 Sad, it takes a little longer driving back, got a Concrete job to start Monday Morning, got to make some $$$$

So are you guys going to do a fun fly on Oct. 9th, at the above location? I've asked for that day off (have to do these things a couple of weeks ahead), so if it's a different date, it would be a good thing to know.

Thanks!

YEs the fly will be on the 9th unless we have a drastic weather change and have torrential rains Tongue  HOpefully the soccer nuts won't be taking up the entire park like they did last weekend but we'll find a spot somewhere in there.

Rhonda and I are considering running down since we'll be missing Chico's first Sunday fly this month  Sad  but then we will be in Tahoe for a friends wedding and spending some time with the daughter, son in law and granddaughter. Depends on how much further behind I get. Wonder if any of the other locals would be up for a road trip?  Steve, Bob, Ted, Denny? 3 hours each way, I'll drive (i'm not a good passenger)

Hey Mike, I have been trying to make both fly's (Chico & Ripon) and probably will be in Ripon next weekend, and Chico this weekend, as long as work doesn't interfere, hey I don't see my name in your list Wink O I'm not really Local, just Loco Grin, winds have been pretty nice, the times I have made it to Ripon, If you and Rhonda are going to be there I might be able to get Terry to go this time, real good group of flyer's lots of kites.

I've been wanting to go since they started it, it's just a pretty long drive for us but since we are missing the Chico fly we're going to try for Ripon. Grass Valley is a bit out of fhe way but if you're buying we'll meet you in Marysville for breakfast  Wink

Well looks like we might have a good size group shaping up.  THe good news is there are no soccer games set for the 9th but the goals will probably be left out as usual.  For those that haven't been to one of our fly's yet we usually fly all day.  SOme of us get out there as early as 8-9 am but most show up around noon and stay till 5 or later.  THere isn't much for shade so bring an umbrella and if you don't have on there is usually a spot under one of ours available.
