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".

Miraculous I go away and have a fly and a good nights sleep and the pics work.
Thanks Thief!   Flying the kites from the back of a jetski in the dark with a big crowd and fireworks going off right alongside was an amazing experience. It was a team effort with Mike Richards from Kite Magic spearheading the event and Roger and I flying and Chris on the launch. All part of celebrating Australia Day!
