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".

Hello from California.
Sad news Wind & Fun kites will be closing it's doors on April 15th. It has been fun but it is time to move on and start having a little fun our self's.  Suzette and i have met some great people and enjoyed some good wind with customers and friend. Suzette and I will still be going to the Brooking kite festival where it all started for us and we will continue to fly our kites as much as possible, ok more now that we will have more time to do so.

To all of you that made it by our store, thank you very much and we will see you on the kite fields soon.

Sorry to hear that Tobie. We never made it down to the shop either unfortunately, but I was there in spirit. Wink

We definitely need to hang out again and fly.

Best wishes,
  Mike

I hate to see any kite shope or kite event close down but I certainly understand the changing priorities as time goes by.  The best of luck to you guys. Smiley
