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".

Camera Rig, $199, camera, and remote control can be whatever you want to spend.

Great shots... I've been quickly shut down by the police & officials when I try to get a KAP kite in the air around town to take shots like this. I guess there's something threatening about a large kite with something hanging from it. They actually suggested that I could be a terrorist... threatened to 'cut my kite free' (the town official took out his knife and waved it around).

New York I guess I can understand that they would be a bit leary. Too bad, there would be great shots there, if there is enough wind and you have enough line Smiley

Interesting, and very disappointing, Rob

One of the photos entered in the AKA KAP contest in Enid was "Above the Ben Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia" by Jim Powers. Another was of the Sheep Meadow in Central Park (NYC) by Sebastian Kaliszewski. I chatted with Jim about his, and apparently he had the kite up in downtown Philly for quite a while, with no reported hassle from the authorities.

Unfortunately, the issue of Kiting that these photos are in is not yet online, and you'd have to be an AKA member anyway to get to it when it is, until it's more than five years old.
