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".

Steve had it so bad he bought a whole kite store. I wonder if he said to Dan "just use the card you have on file".  Smiley

I fully appreciate the ability of trees to attract kites. They have special powers that way.

We got home Monday night from MIKE (having flown four days in a row) and as we were unloading, I got out my Borelli Glider and flew in the driveway for 20 minutes!

I've been involved with this nutty hobby going on 4 years.

At least for me I've slowed purchases way down. I also am less affected by the new greatest kite ever. That being said, I already own a Talon UL.

Steve, please don't take this as a challange, You know I'm weak. Wink
