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".

After a vacation spent sick, tired and NOT at Kite Party, I got a much needed boost when I came home to a long box leaning against the back door.

Out of the blue, one of those amazingly generous kite people sent me something I've wanted a long time.

A Matheson AzizA.  Huh  Cool

These things are so rare (especially in the States) that I never even bothered to put up a Want ad.

I'll be sending something nice in return.

Excellent surprise!

What is really strange for me is that the box was there when you arrived. I mean, that no one had taken it.
Nice to know there are still places where these situations can occur.  Smiley

I later modified the trick line on the one I had to an M-shaped one, but if I still had the AizizA, I'd take it off entirely and use keeper lines on the bridle. It's very good at flic-flac variations.


Yup, I was looking at that old trick line and thinking "Lazy Killer?"

Flic-flac variations? Does anyone around here still DO those?   Roll Eyes

(just kidding guys, keep those AFVFFy things going)  Cool
