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".

The party was great. I even learned a bit about Jim I didn't know from all the stories going around.  The funny thing was while we were talking about Jims "light pole" candy drop rig landing Dano's tethered NTK delta decided to do an imitation on the tether wire for the mast flag pole.  Coincidence?

Coincidence?

I think not!

I was sitting there and saw the first wrap, i ran to it and grabbed my banner pole to save it, For every push to unwrap it, i got 3 more twists to counter each one of mine.

Your story Anthony explains alot of why i lost the battle.  Wink Glad to know he was there!

We did finally get the kite down a few hours later.
