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".

I'll be there and so will Steve Spooner. Denny (DWayne) from the Chico Fly is also coming-- we're going to do the TNT Zero vs Fearless SUL throwdown. Steve can play too with the Ocius SUL he's buying from Mike. Should be a fun time!

The wind is looking better & better for Ripon Sunday. Hope everyone makes it!

I'll be there.

I'm no replacement for Denny, but I'll take up some space out there on the soccer field.

I'll be there, I'm really looking forward to seeing all of you.

Thanks to Tony's help with MKF, I can now simultaneously lawn dart multiple kites.   I feel like an absolute beginner when attempting to fly two stunt kites at once (frustrating but fun). I keep thinking that with a little more practice my dueling lawn dart routine (and mid-air collisions) will become a distant memory. Thanks Tony for getting me started Grin

You're welcome Smiley Keep practicing and you'll soon confirm that Einstein's theory about two objects not occupying the same space at the same time is correct Smiley

See ya' !
