Subject: RE: Knockholt 2008 Summer Breeze
A semi-pro marquee fellow I know puts HUGE metal stakes into the ground (rather like the main ones that Knockers used to use on the superseded military tent), very close to the principal uprights, then runs a ratchet lorry strop over the top at each end, close to the support poles so that the long-ways poles are not in significant bending. Pretty well nothing will lift that off.
