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".

Big round this! All entrants should have had two emails from me by now... if not please let me know.

All videos can be downloaded from here (528mb!)

Or you can download a score sheet with a link to all entry's separately from here You can even have a go at scoring!


As always there are many people to thank......

First Big thanks to Adrian Bickerstaff who has been working on the new VF website for ages and to Kiteclique.com - probably the best place to look for reviews, tutorials and videos.
Gerado deserves special mention mention for translation services, as does Gui who agreed to be available for French translation should the need arise (which it still might Gui :wink: )

Also everybody who donated Prizes....

1... A 'Superfly' Kite from Chris Goff Kites to be awarded by random draw
2...an Area 51 donated by Krijn...to be awarded by...another method, but not to the winner :wink:
3...1 VF mug financed by the left over beer kitty from the UK trick comps and will be awarded to random draw of people who have flown in a Tricks Party or similar freestyle competition with an arena and judges. (So please let me know when you submit your entry)
4...2 VF mugs to be awarded by random draw
5...1 set of Benson Straps, (knuckle Dusters and regular finger)... you know the ones, with the special Jon Ward sourced material :wink:
6...1 set of California Straps (Wrist Straps and one pair of 3-finger Straps.)- Lovely straps made by a fellow flyer in the winter evenings - some help with postage will be needed for these - to be paid to the manufacturer.
7...1 XL sized FA hoodie, limited edition colour

Don't forget that the VF banner starts it's world tour this round and hopefully will come back in a year or two (before/when it gets too battered to carry on) with all the winners autographs Cool

taking over the reigns from Mike
It's not easy being King of VF but a new high score for entrants tells the story.

Mike,

Hi everyone,

I did a little renaming to fix people's issues with the download.  The download URL is now:

http://virtualfreestyle.com/video/VF21/VF21.zip

It'd be great if someone could please post this update on GWTW too.

I'm definitely not an IT kind of guy, but am at a loss as to how to see these vids on Windows XP.  I can download the file, but it won't play on Windows Media, other than sound on a few.......leaves me quite frustrated to hear the kite but not see it. Angry

Hey Jim... try downloading the VLC player, it will play just about any media type...

http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

The videos have been awesome so far... haven't gotten a chance to watch them all yet. Bummed I couldn't get something together to send in this time, good luck to you all with winning that great looking new kite !
