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 a bit surprised at how deeply saddened I've been by the death of "Prince". I've had personal encounters and even owned the yellow Caddy used in the Purple Rain movie, but that's another story. I'd fly one if I had one. I know there's a lot lot of purple fabric out there. So, fly one if you've got one to honor one of the most influential and humble musicians of our times. Liked his music or not, he was a force of nature and, had he been a kiter, he'd have flown circles 'round all of us..... Sad Sad Sad

I have several purple kites, but chose a Transformer, by Lam Hoac to fly in memory of Prince.
