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".

After a year of not flying due to health issues, I got to fly yesterday. It felt great. There was decent wind in NW Georgia! I even got to try out a mid-vented Rev I had bought and never flown. Much smoother in the gusty wind. I flew until I was tired. Grin  So glad to be back! I'll probably be looking for a B Series fairly soon! So happy to be back to the dark side!

That's quite a feat with a Rev! Remember, you could always bust out a chair at that point. Wink

Thanks! It's a joy to be flying again.Smiley  I've retired from my teaching job, so that leaves me with only my part-time staff position at church. Much more time to play now! Grin Yes, I was Reverend long before I got to fly a Rev. I think they go together well. Chair! Wish I had thought of that! Roll Eyes I'll stick a chair in the car next time I have decent winds. Maybe I can work a trip to the coast in fairly soon. I've never flown with a steady wind. I guess it's time to give that a try.

RevJim, It's good to hear from you!!! I've wondered what you were up to...You've been off the radar for quite a while....I hope you're feelling well and healthy!  Have you worn out the lime/ black SLE!  Let's  keep in touch.... Mark

Thanks, Mark. It sat, patiently waiting for me. It knows I'm back now! Looking forward to putting some serious hours on it.
