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".

just found out that Paul passed away in March.
http://www.hathawayfunerals.com/obits/obituaries.php/obitID/517102

For those of you who do not know of Paul and his kites he made some phenomenal kites;
The speed limit is a bigger kite that has automatic dynamic venting....good to over 30!
The stripes is a great team kite with a good repertoire....
The lark and lite lark are great team kites aimed for competing in lower winds...the lite lark is great in 1mph!

Paul was a master builder, all of his kites had broadseams that help to force more curves into the kites....lots of mylar too in his kites too....

Rest in peace Paul

In the 1990s, I flew on the Stunt Kite Northeast Circuit with Paul.  Great man, innovative kite designer and great pairs team flyer.  He will be missed.

That is very sad.

I just flew my Speed Limits a few months ago.

A celebration of Paul's life is planned for August 18. His family and friends welcome anyone who enjoyed and admired him - he was truly a unique individual. Please contact me for specific details.

Thank you for the invitation.

I never met Paul, but I have often flown and own several of his kites.

I will fly a kite in his memory.

I am so sorry for your loss.
