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".

Dave I understand that this year will be an expanded version of Kite Party.  There will be additional flying areas to the south of the pier and to the north in front of the condos.  Perhaps you could share your vision of what and where.  For example do you see the big show kites to the north and the SLK “art” kites south of the pier or  …. ?  If you have described it elsewhere I apologize and would ask that you please direct me there.

If I had a vision for you, I'd be happy to share it, but I don't. I don't know just how expanded it's going to be yet. I had to provide a rough map of fields to the city, but I only numbered fields. In addition, the budget is lower than I hoped (afraid working out a glorified dumpster for going on 4 months now has taken a bit of a toll), and I don't know how many volleyball poles I can afford to have pulled at $30.00 a pop, since at the moment there are about 50 of them in my way! I should get word this week if the city has any money to throw at the event. There was talk that there would be a few months ago, however the recent talk took a different turn (away from the bank!). I'm really sorry for all the uncertainty this year, but at this time, I don't even know if I'll be open for Kite Party. There is a design issue with the new building, and we're getting a lot of water coming in. We can't get the "final" construction signed off (and then a Cert. of Occ) until the issue is resolved. Still weeks away  Sad    Sorry....

Hang in there Dave, have some fun at KTAI. Just had a thought, how about using the volleyball courts for smaller SLK's and/or public flying? The poles could be anchors if you kept the lifters and pullers out. That would be Brian.  Wink Good luck with the issues, hope to see you soon.

I'm touched by your generous offers, but let me see what I can work out first. I'd much rather you spend your money on more meaningful things. Thank you though.
