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: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

Yes, if you replace words, the meaning changes; that's how language works.

I joined up. I'm new into kiting, this year and in Australia to boot! Region 13, the rest of the world I think. I don't know of the history or the politics. But if JB is driving I'm coming along! I don't use the term "someone I aspire to be" much but the way John conducts himself is nothing short of an example and I can't wait to meet him and shake his hand.

The 10% discount doesn't hurt either.

Todd: they = we = spot on.

The primary difference now may be that we have a younger, more tech-savvy and outward-bound perspective from the top down... I posted this on the AKA Facebook page yesterday:

Quote
The focus *here* is the AKA, and it's existence as the North American vessel for 50 years of kiting... Stay involved, sharing your favorite kite resources, educating each other, turning new people onto kiting, get them connected with the kite family at large.

Ever onward, I'll just be one of many with the bugle, ideas and a grin... Stay tuned through AKA channels (here, forum, email, Kiting magazine) for projects and ideas that you might have an interest in.

The key here, is that "the AKA" is and always has been a collection of kitefliers who either participate or contribute their time and expertise to necessary organizational or development aspects - many hands and practical (attainable) tasking makes light work if enough folks get involved, I hope to facilitate this process best I can and am looking forward to it.

Huge tip of the hat to Barbara Meyer for taking the helm for these past 3 years... With the help of countless other folks (most of whom are staying on), she has put the AKA in a relatively stable (although lean) position going into 2013 - safe to say it's what we make of it from here, and I'm grateful for the clean start - thank you Barbara.

Most of you know my style - I'm a doer first, lead by example.
