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".

You can always, either put a few wraps of tape around one end cap fitting of the fiberglass standoff so that it does not slip out so easily on one side of the stand off or tie a very thin peice of upolstery thread to the standoff and the other end to a sturdy part of the kite, If it does fall out, at least it is still attached to the kite.  You can land it and put it back in.  If I can, I try to anchor one end of a standoff permanently to the kite so that I never lose them. Just a few thoughts....

Buck, what side of the Chicagoland area are you located? I'm west of Aurora. Sounds like you are farther out of the city.
