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".

Just got an E mail from one of our kite friends in Barrows the other day....Tom Butler.

It would appear that his family and neighbors were trying to prepare for one of the worst wind storms with huge water storm surges in recent history? Shocked Shocked Huh

  GOOD NEWS HOWEVER...
FROM THE LATEST LONG RANGE WEATHER FORCAST...THANKFULLY, HOPEFULLY...
THIS TIME..it appears that he is  going to DODGE THE BIG BULLET ONE for that main storm which is forecasted for around 40 to 50mph sustained winds.

Guess his OLD PRISM VENTED KITE WITH THE 300# LINES and our skinny feeble old kite koot streeeeeeeetched' arms will have a chance of surviving.
However!!!!!!!
Last year..Tom almost BIT THE BIT ONE...SNOW KITE SKIING in that COLD LAND OF THE  MID NIGHT SUN!
