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".

I'm so, so happy!   Cheesy
My new Talon UL arrived just today!

Isn't it beautiful?   Tongue
I would like to thank Mark for his craftsmanship in bringing my design to life.
I think it is even better than I imagined!    Smiley

Now I'll have to have a lot of patience until I get to fly it. It will be a truly Zen exercise...   Huh
I hope this weekend is not especially windy...

Cheers,

N.

Awesome! Congrats.

You definitely made the right the choice in the colors/pattern. It gives off a robot/alien vibe, I dig it.

I would wish you luck on that "not especially windy" weekend, but then I'd be jinxing everyone (ME) who doesn't have a UL!  Wink

Don't worry, I'm in a different continent from you and, in any case, I don't know anyone in the forum that is closer than 1000miles from me...
So do wish me luck   Wink

Good winds to everyone!

That is really sweet (drooling). I hope I can get one when I move up to the big boys table. I'll have to start saving my aluminum cans and checking between the couch cushions.

Not true - the UL is forgiving and hands out tricks for free.
