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".

While I was flying here in Newman, Ca at my usual park a gentleman approached and we started talking about kites. It turns out he was True Tourtillott from Tracy, Ca, he is the husband of Pamala who manufactured the Renagade Sport kites in Fremont, Ca.. They got out of the business many years ago and are now retired and don't do much kite flying although they still have a couple bags of kites.  Anyway, I thought is was neat to have him stop by and talk to me as I never run into anybody down here who is interested in kites, let alone someone who was in the kite business. It really made my day Smiley

I still have a few of Pam Markie's Renegade kites. Used to talk with her a lot on the phone.

Never met her, but have seen several of her kites.

I was told she was sure she was going to be sued by Hugh Hefner
for the bunny kites.
