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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to:

... and slide it into the sleeve nose first.

Nose First ??  Huh  That's bass ackwards!  Cheesy

Well we haven't done the "Which way to put the kite in the bag" thing in quite awhile. 

Same as most, I don't detension, leading edges and spine together, stand offs and bridle into the folds and lightly roll the fabric up to the spars. I don't break down except on the rare occasion I'm taking them on an airplane or packing a lot of stuff for a trip, but I do drive an SUV or Van and don't have any kids needing the back seat. I seldom (never) leave a kite together when transporting or storing and I can't see the wrinkles at 75 feet anyway.

I like my toilet paper over the top.  Kiss
