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".

Hey Gang,
So I had about a 30 minutes conversation with a Mr. Steve Vess yesterday. He flies Revs, has a bought a few of them from me over the past few weeks, dabbles in this and that, etc. We discussed various kite related topics, old school kites, etc. So he tells me he's going to be in my area in April and that he was going to stop in and say hello. I said that would be great. THEN, out of nowhere, he says something to me that just sent a chill up my spine.... He says, and I quote "Don't you have a FESTIVAL in March or something?". I pause for a moment, shocked, and respond something to the effect of "whoa, whoa, whoa, WHOA!!....don't you EVER, EVER, EEEVVER........use the "F" word when talking about my event again!". Obviously surprised, he replies "what did I say?". I said, "You called it a FESTIVAL. We do NOT use that word, EVER! It's a PARTY!!!!!
He chuckles, and laughingly says "oh, sorry". So I give him a brief little explanation, talk about it's magical powers, etc. So he asks me the date, and I tell him. THEN, he says something else that absolutely FLOORED me, and about stopped my heart....you better sit down for this one gang. He says, and I quote "Oh, I think I'm going to be in HAWAII that weekend". OMG, I about had a flippin baby! I exploded, I could NOT stop laughing. I said "OMG, you have GOT to go the GWTW Forum, find the KITE PARTY thread, and tell that story!! Just wait til' you read the responses. I gave him a brief summary of Mark's story, but he's a newbie to the forum, in fact he didn't even know about it (poor guy) as there are very few kite people where he lives. So I told him I would do it for him. So here I am.
So, gang, I am asking you to PLEASE help save this poor man from certain doom, and address Mr. Vess's plans to miss Kite Party for a trip to Hawaii! Feel free to mention any other examples of KP Karma that apply!! Thank you, a man's LIFE may be at stake here!!!

Right, that's the one that isn't happening on the north side of the Huntington Beach pier the second weekend of March, 2013.  Lynn and I won't be attending again this year, just like the past ten years.  Roll Eyes

Much better than a weekend in Hawaii.  Closer too.   Wink

Normally I wouldn't cross post this but just to give hime an idea of how to adress the whole issue, this is what I just had to say........
As  I get ready to leave for TI on Thursday and the "west" Coast beaches of Florida, my thoughts are on what I won't be doing in March on some other empty "west" coast beach that no one else goes to in Southern California the 2nd weekend in March.
But if for some reason you find yourself on that same deserted stretch of beach and there are a bunch of silly looking people with silly grins on their faces, it's safe to say you're in the WRONG place! Lips sealed Lips sealed Lips sealed
