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".
Questions or concerns?

I can just picture that as giant painted or appliqued Edo.  Have "Revolution" in Japanese printed on the button (if permission could be obtained).  Call it "Barresi Takako Doko Desu" or something with John's name in it that kind of makes sense (if permission could be obtained).  It would be awesome in the air!
