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 visited my old flying field at Shoreline Park for the first time in a couple of years. As always, good wind.

Also, as always, the Plains of Despair (a gravel, weeds & grunge parking lot which makes up most of the flying space) added it's own bit of fun.

First launch of the 150' Dragon!


Wait, what's that out at the end of the tail?  Shocked

A shrubbery!


Or tumbleweed, or something...



Once the Big Dragon was untangled and up, my (previously huge) 55' Sun King went up to fly too.  Smiley Smiley Smiley

Having the Sun King there certainly points up the scale of the new one!

A shrubbery? When did the Knights That Formerly Said Ni! move from the Misty Woods to the Plain of Despair?

It's a beauty. How long does it take to roll up that tail?

Roll up?  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Stuff it into a sack!

It attaches to the head at the first red section with velcro.

The spars come out of the head, and it gets folded over and lightly rolled.
