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".

Too bad there wasn't enough wind for the triad arch. I was interested to see after they sold.

It did get up a few times in the afternoon. It took 4 or 5 mph to get it to fly though.

ps, I think George said there were 30 triad in the arch.

For me too- I'd never seen an arch other than in photos. So cool. Allen's video is neat to see.

Denny, yes. You must never relax your guard.  Cool
