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".

Oh man Rob, contrats to your niece, but I'm sure sorry you won't be able to make it.

I'll be there. Wind is shaping up to be perfect as of a few minutes ago. I well know that can change, but am crossing my fingers that it holds.

Forgot! Allen am so glad you will be able to make it too- wasn't sure if you'd be recovered from your road trip.

Wind forecast holding at 10-20mph. If it stays that way we should have about half that amount... which would be perfect. Cross your fingers people!

Okay am at the field and soccer has taken the whole field. But.... There's another field across from the far bathrooms / baseball diamond that is perfect so we will be there. Wind is perfect right now!

Yes, it was a lovely day all the way around- perfect winds and wonderful people. The "little" field turned out to be perfect, with the added bonus of being close to the bathroom!

Duane, it was great meeting you and your family. Anita, if you are reading this, make sure to bring the CoffeeShop girls back again. They were so much fun- a total fresh breath of air.

Don, it was so good to see you again. I learned a lot just following you around to listen in on your inpromptu coaching sessions. You are a pistol!

Steve my friend, I was right. I'm always right, so it's good you are finally seeing the light (lol). So glad you had a good time. Next month we talk your wife Joie into joining us. Conway too!

Tony, no worries ... what you had to say was worth a repeat. Thanks for the mini-lession at the end of the day. I'll try really hard to remember your pointers, though I can just about guarantee I'll need to hear them again and again and again to get them to sink in.

Allen, Mike, and Anthony (gads who am I forgetting?) it was great seeing you and yours again. Allen, stay longer next time. Mike, come earlier! Wink

Rob, John, and George-- you were missed!
