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".

It was great meeting you! I had an awesome time with everyone, but please dont tell them I am a nice guy, that will ruin all of the hard work that some have done over the years to convince kite fliers otherwise  Wink Smiley

As you guys can see, although it was an Ocean Shores/Skydog party, we didnt care what anyone flew.

This is more about gathering kite fliers together and having fun like it used to be. Andy and I were just so happy with how many fliers did come, and how far many drove long distances to fly with us on that cold windy beach, it is certainly an honor that you came to fly with us! Thanks so much!

I camped for 5 days in a private camping lot near the ocean with Andy, waking up at 6am and chopping wood, starting the fire, washing up in a frisbee, eating meat on a stick, flying all day, coming back to the site, chopping wood, big fires and eating, thats right, meat on a stick! What a great time!

Skydog sportkites got a lot of air time and the host shop and myself were very pleased with how all of the Skydog Sportkites flew in those conditions. We feel the performance and qualtiy was proven to everyone there.
Andy and Tom are now very confident and impressed with Skydog Sport Kites and a couple of models are now their favorites.

Thanks again for coming, we will try to do it again later this year, hope you are up for it! Sorry we couldnt have a Bon fire.....Too windy!

Best wishes,
