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".

Hope the kid isn't in an abusive home or is neglected.

Bring an old beginner kite with you next time out. approach him and ask if he would like to fly it,give him breif instructions and you may have a friend for life.,or maybe not but at least you tried to make peace with him
and show him about respect, obviously he has little guidence in life. Hey just a thought.

CA, you should caveat that with "Not that kids throw stones at me a lot"


... cos I just had a funny image come to mind  Wink


BTW it is a good idea (not throwing rocks at CA, the 'take a beater kite down'... that bit was the good idea...)

Does Utah have a "Stand Your Ground" law? If so, you're probably authorized to shoot him. Works every time.

Probably, the higher road with the added benfit of possibly working.

Got to admit though.... knee jerk reaction leans towards....  something a bit more pyrotechnic.  Huh

Could the kid throw a heavy enough rock hard enough and far enough to pose a big risk to a kite? I've had birds and model planes collide with no damage

trying to showing the kid to fly may work. If not go out and fly but be ready to pick up and go, follow him home and have a talk with his mom and dad. That way 1. Mom and dad may take care of it.  2. you know where he lives and can call the law on him the next time.

But i do think taking him under your wing would be a good thing.

Throw sticks at him and call him names... then the situation will be complete.
