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'd go a bit more then 1' lines because diamonds are often a bit skittish, I don't know about Gombergs though. Too short of line will get them swinging hard with no time to self correct. Putting 50+ up on a branched arch would be "Challenging" at best. If you choose all on an arch Thiefs instructions make a reliable arch although more work.

Mayhem is good   Wink   I never mind a day of dozens of kids running every which way, crashes, tangles...  that's a kite day. You meet the nicest people in adverse conditions, many people never meet their neighbors until the power goes out and everybody gathers in the street. Just saying

Good point on the branched layout, Thiefs configuration would make for an easier fly, maybe 3 arches... there is enough room on the field...
and I can make them up ahead of time...

What weight of line? I freely admit my ignorance here... Grin

Looks like at least 100 kites on the main stack, a little  hard to count...
