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".

Weather held up this afternoon.  We've been in dark clouds for almost a week... Little some today. btw watch the weird shadows of the kite.  The sun is so different at this time of the year.. Only a couple more weeks till Soltist. I do enjoy when the light starts coming back...

I really chopped up an hour of flying.  I did alot of control flying ... I watched Rob and I decided to continue with ground control.

I tried one FFF ... Gonna start to post good one's ...

one hair cut all of 2012' ...

NICE! Really Nice!  Cheesy
At full screen it is as if I were there... great feeling  Smiley
At some shots the kite is so close to the camera and looks so large that you can almost tell its weight and how it is catching the wind... almost feel the lines.
Very nice.
And again excellent orangey cosy light. Very well accompanied by the music.

Now, the FFF was sort of...  Wink
But you got one nice 540 there.  Smiley
Great vid, I enjoyed it.

Was that the WM UL ? It looked nice and steady in your backyard wind... I saw a couple of nice, big slides in there... lookin' good. I like to play around on the ground because I think it teaches control over the kite that's useful when you're flying, too. Plus, it gives you something to do when the wind's not cooperating. I was expecting a Flapjack at one point in the video, looked like I saw you setting up for it.  Shocked
