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".

Folks, as Jim recently mentioned in another thread, there's a new festival in our region coming up soon on June 13th. Wanted to pass this along to you. See below for details and contact info. This is being coordinated by Sky Jewels Kites and is not specifically a WOW-event, but it's another great opportunity to fly in our area! It should be on the AKA calendar shortly and I'll put it on our calendar, as well.
 
=========

On June 13th, the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority will be holding their first annual kite festival at the Occoquan Regional Park in Lorton, VA.  The event will run from 10am to 3pm on Saturday.  The park has set aside a large area for the kite flyers, along with dedicated parking, and a dedicated area for spectators to fly their kites.  The flying fields are situated such that our kites should be visible from both Northbound and Southbound I-95, US Rt1, and the town of Occoquan so the opportunity to showcase our kites and club are potentially huge!

The Park Management is very excited about this event and wants to do everything they can to make it a success. 

Anyone interested in attending should contact Jim Hodges at 703-201-0060 or jjhodges@aol.com.

And I'll probably be there as well! I have to have something to do since I can't make it to the NC Rogallo Festival.

Anyway that I can help put on a local show for the crowd, I'm always willing. Maybe we can even put out some WOW Banners or stuff?!?!? Jeff??!?!?!

Brian,

Jeff and I will be in Rogallo that weekend, so we wont't be able to attend.   You are more than welcome to grab some WOW banners to put up at this festival.   We can either make arrangements to get them to you at First Sunday Fly this Sunday or if you want to come to the house sometime this weekend we can do that too.   We will be taking some stuff with us to Rogallo, but not the bulk of it.   It is just too hard on the Dunes to drag all of that stuff up.
