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".

Hello all,
 
ODSKC 2009 is right around the corner, and to start things off, we're going to raffle off chances for you to win one of the hottest new kites out there, the Saber by Will Sturdy.  At this point, lots of folks know about Will as a flier.  In just a few years, he's established himself as one of the best fliers in the Eastern League, moving up to Masters in 3 years time.  He was also the AKA 2008 EIB champion, and his virtual freestyle entries from the last 2 years have been universally praised.
 
DID YOU KNOW that Will is also a champion kitebuilder?  Will's designed several kites over the past few years, and his latest design, the Saber, was the AKAGN 2008 kitebuilding champion in the sport kite category.  The Saber is an awesome kite - great precision, and it's got every trick in the book pre-loaded and ready to go.  Here are some pictures:

The top row shows the Saber in it's latest graphic layout.  I saw the red, blue, and green Sabers flying team this weekend and let me tell you, they look super sharp in the air!

To show what the Saber is capable of, check out this video from the last Virtual Freestyle 12:

Will Sturdy Virtual Freestyle 12]VF 12:  [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XW_u7LoxHE#lq-lq2-hq]Will Sturdy Virtual Freestyle 12[/url]

So here's the deal:  Will has been kind enough to donate a custom Saber (custom=you choose the center accent color) to help raise some cash for ODSKC.  We're selling tickets for $10, to a maximum of 50 tickets.  Buying raffle tickets is easy!  Here's how you do it:

1.  Go to http://www.richmondairforce.com/ODSKC/index.htm and click the "Donate" button located halfway down the page.  That'll take you to Paypal, where you can pay either with your own Paypal account or with any major credit card.  Just donate the appropriate amount for the number of tickets you want.

2.  Reply to this email with your name and address and let me know how many tickets you purchased.

3.  Cross our fingers and keep them in that position until the winner is announced!   Wink

The raffle will continue until Monday, June 8, or until 50 tickets are sold, whichever comes first.  Once the raffle's done, I'll have an independent, neutral entity (a.k.a. one of my kids) draw the winner from the proverbial hat.  Sound good?  Don't wait!  Get your tickets now while they're still available!

P.S.  Don't forget-  Anyone who registers for ODSKC 2009 before June 1 gets a $15 discount on their registration, so don't wait!  While you're getting your raffle tickets, take a moment and fill out our online registration form at http://www.richmondairforce.com/ODSKC/registration.htm.  It's fast and easy, and you can pay your registration fees online.

just want to remind everyone that today is the last day for Saber raffle tickets.  You've got until midnight!  I'll do the drawing tomorrow evening.

I've set up a page on the ODSKC web site that has all the raffle info on it:  http://www.richmondairforce.com/ODSKC/raffle.htm

Check it out, there are also still a few tickets left (5 left as of the posting of this message) on our Skate raffle as well, looks like that one will be ending early!

Also, if you're planning on competing at ODSKC, or if you just want to come, hang out, and join us for the cookout, please go to http://www.richmondairforce.com/ODSKC/registration.htm and take a moment to fill out the registration form so I can have an accurate headcount for the cookout.  For all non-Novice competitors, you've got until this Saturday (6/13) to register, so don't wait!
