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.

While the food and shirts are important stuff.....

Kites are (is?) a good topic for KP11.

So.....

I'd like to do a couple of old school group shoots.

1 Joel Scholz (no "t") kites (both Sky Delights & GFAK JS versions)
2 Peter Betancourt kites
3 Dean Jordan kites

4 Bring any old school kites you have.
  TOTL
  Fire Darts
  Old Revolutions

What can you people bring? I hear Joel had a 19 foot delta.
I've got 1 Sky Delights, 1 GFAK JS, 1 VP & 1 BadBoy, 2 Dean Jordans

I'm open to other old school shoots. Suggestions?

Lee, do you want to borrow the Vanishing Point?
You can return it to me at KP12.

Dual line??  Or do you mean the SLK Raptor - listed as 20' but closer to 21'  I have a pair in the different color layouts.  Makes for a fun train.

Pretty bulky to bring on the plane . . . . was wondering if you'd chime in on this thread  Smiley since I know where you got the second one . . . . I'd like to see that train, if you are going to KPXI (and I can make it . . . not sure this year).

Don Tabor (TOTL) and Jerry Sinotte (Avenger, One of Jerry's Kites,) are two VERY instrumental designers from the early 80's. Their designs were the foundation for today's kites (in my opinion). Would love to see some Peregrine's, Spin-Offs, Team Kites, Northshore's etc). Jon Trennepohl and Tim Benson should be in the mix? Or is this just a list of kites you haven't photographed yet, since you did a Benson thing in the past? Just my .02, which is worth much less ;-)

If we're making requests, I think a bunch of Fire Dart-type kites would be cool. Also very important historically and the simple geometric design looks great.  Maybe some Bees to one side.

Below is one of my favorites (a SkyDart, I think)

Bring All Old School Kites

We'll sort it out there.
Maybe sub-groups and then 1 huge shoot.

Revs must be at least 10 years old.
No B-Series or Zens.

This could be huge.  Smiley

We should have a test of old skool skillz.

How about a Skynasaur Areobat? I never could get that thing to fly...

Or anything pre-whiskers.

I remember hearing people used to challenge each other on the size of the window with a given kite. Things were simpler back then...

Indeed.  Grin  Sounds fun!  I have at least 9-10 that would qualify or have already been mentioned.

So what are we considering the cutoff year for old school?

Allen:  yes!  That's definitely old school, unfortunately I sold all my Skynasaurs awhile back.

Dean Jordan kites? You could have narrowed it down to something other then any kite ever made or thought of.
