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".

John,
....Very bravely done, both in: a) attempting it, and b) reporting here what happened.

Reminds me of what happened at the class next door, when some science and engineering volunteers gave lessons at a primary school.  Their volunteer was attempting to show the class the size of the solar system, using a variety of fruit from a pea to a pumpkin to represent the planets and sun.  It was going well until they stepped out into the playground to show the relative distances between heavenly bodies, and someone dropped the sun.  At the midday break the volunteer went to the pub 'for lunch' and was not seen again.

Wouldn't a Widow NG or some such been more appropriate than the DW for first time flyers?
