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".

I dont know if anyone can confirm this, but I kind of heard thru the grape vine that Warren has passed away. Terrible news if true. Anyone know more?

Wow, that is terrible news if true.  Was this a reliable source?

I just picked up 3 MEFM's about a month ago, had emailed him some questions about them but hadn't heard back yet.

Ooh, I hope not.  I'll try and find out.

The grapevine MAY be getting mixed up with former World Cup judge Bob Dawson who passed away late last year in a workplace accident.  Bob and Warren were the top two Aussie sport kite flyers and builders in Australia in the late 90s, and were very close friends.  You hardly ever saw one without the other. 

Typical of their larrikin humour and mutual respect, following the initial success of the MEFM, Bob simplified his Leading Edge Swift XL design and competed at the next sport kite event with his new "BOBM"  Smiley

As far as I know it was a reliable source, and someone well known in the kite community.

Latest I heard (yesterday) is that Macca is still around and (typically) doing stuff in "Macca time".  I'll do more investigating...

Yes no word here of any problems with Warren. I'm guessing somebody mistook it for Bob's untimely death.
