Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
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".

I'm gonna have to go find some rain gear, and get out there and fly.

Send some of it to Las Vegas. Lake Mead is under 50% capacity with no rain in sight.

Just don't send all of it.

You just need to drive an hour or so west.  Of course the "refreshing Delta Breezes" are blowing so bring some high wind kites! Smiley

Any evening flies planned between the 5th-10th of next month?  I am going to be in the area.

I got to fly for about 4 hours yesterday, but the rain is back again today..

I imagine that i'll be the first one at the Silver Bowl on Friday, trying to get caught back up on airtime due to all this rain.

Bring the Shadow John. I want to try it out again.  Wink
