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".

If you narrowed it down to kites made in the previous century.....I'd still have too many to carry in one trip. Cheesy

Got some PBSKs though.

Gee, John, that's a pretty broad call.  I'm not even sure where to begin.  I have a tiny museum's worth of old kites.  Can you pick a category or two?  (Plus, you want to have something left for when we don't have KP12 next year...)

Bring the kites you think get seen the least if you've too many.

I've got a few gift kites which need to get out and fly. My thanks

to Geezer and skb™ for some truly unusual fliers.  Smiley

Hmm, time to pull out some old stuff.    Smiley

Perhaps the Opus 8 that hangs from my ceiling should come out to play. (it's even signed by the Chicago Fire team members from that time).

Ah, the Chicago Fire!  They were my favorite MLS team back in the day!  Thanks for reviving that memory.

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...

I still have a Skynasaur Aerobat. It was my first stunt kite in the 80's.

Just dug out an old Rev I that I got at WSIKF from a pest control guy in Wenatchee WA about 9 years ago.  It may be the first one after the Neos Omega.  It has been flown only about half a dozen times.  I'll bring it.   Perhaps someone can tell me more about it.

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

Sent from my Samsung S3

I have a DJ "Hugo" in a one off color scheme as noted by Dean. I'm wondering if an early "Diatribe" might show up for the shoot?  Wink
