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".

We have assembled about $540.00 so far. Between Brian's Berkeley Kite Fest solicitations and the donations here. The estimated cost based on previous projects I have worked on with my local Rotary club would put an estimated cost at $1,200 to $1,400. All this depends on the the Parks and Rec Dept.The plan would be to have a dedication on the anniversary of Jim's passing.

You Guys and Gals are awesome

George is right we are still negotiating with the park  ( I felt I needed get the project started with Berkeley happening last weekend)

George and I WILL place this bench, we are committed to the project.

I was involved in a similar project for another friend last year it took almost a year to collect enough money...Donations stalled near the end and then some one made a nice donation and we were on our way.
  That bench was placed at Doran park in Bodega bay. It was dedicated this last spring.
 Doran Park is a STATE park and they , the park rangers insisted on supplying the bench and installing it. They even put a sealer on it! The cost was right around $1400

 Lake Yosemite Park is a county park as such seems easier to deal with (fewer state regulations)  Our hopes are that they will agree to let us provide and install the bench. Either way we are confident this bench to honor Jim will happen
