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

Wright Brothers
Ray Bethell
David Gomberg

Just found this list. Very impressive list of kite people. But it stops at 2009.

No body worthy after that?

Nominees for 2010, 2011?

Anyone, anyone, Bueller

IIRC, 2010 was brothers Joe and Jim Hadzicki. Can't remember if there was a third honoree.

We'll find out 2011 in a few weeks.  Wink

Who takes care of the decision making ?

I'd like to nominate Steve for bringing the worldwide kiting community together on a regular basis...

And I'd like to nominate John, the OP, for capturing and documenting so much kite flying in a wonderful way.
