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".

Before I forget to post this, with just a couple of weeks left in the countdown...

The "Hearts in Flight for World Peace" project was born out of a tragic circumstance in RiverFalls, Wi. last summer as a tribute to the sisters who lost their lives.
The starter kite is a GFAK 35ft. dragon with flying heart motif. The idea is for folks to sign or comment on the tail as a Heart in Flight...
As the kite collects and flies with those names and sentiments, they will be carried on the winds to every corner of the globe...

John Chilese will be bringing the dragon to KP11 and there will be an opportunity to add your name or thoughts as a "Heart in Flight for World Peace"

My gratitude to John for his kindness in assisting in the effort...

Nice, glad to hear you've found a way to keep the effort you put into that alive with a new direction. Kudo's to John C too for investing his time.

John returned the "Hearts in Flight for World Peace" kite from it's journey to KP 11 (though I doubt it was ever really there being as the event never really happened)  Wink, it's been sitting in my apt. for a few days now and I finally made some time to sit down and unpack it. It smells like the ocean and has begun to take on signs of life as names and comments populate more and more of it's skin. It fairly left my skin crawling as I reviewed the collection of inked sentiments. Thanks again for your efforts John !
Any time your in the air, take a moment and be a "heart in flight for world peace."   Smiley
