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 is official, the city of Huntington Beach will hold its first annual (actually it's about it's 15th, but since the Kite Party Replaced the Festival, we are calling it the 1st) Kite Festival September 8th and 9th. Mr. Steve Bone, the President of the Conference and Visitor's Bureau wants this event to (eventually) be the biggest kiting event in the world. It will take place in front of the Hyatt Resort, and will probably take up 1/2 mile of beach. There will be all sorts of awesome things going on. Make your plans now!

JUNE 15TH UPDATE: Sorry, due to circumstances beyond my control, this event is currently on hold. I'm sorry.

This is it...aint no more. And I'm thinking we might have to call it an "Extravaganza" or "Expo" to avoid use of the "F" word, as George Halpin so kindly pointed out.

Sorry, but this event is currently on hold. This decision has nothing to do with me, and I will just leave it at that. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this has caused anyone.
