It appears that a gust

has puffed up the canvas

Watch for dancing poles

I'm not sure Tuffy ever smoked, but that guy @ Center R resembles him.

Those poles are supposed to be staked down, but supposed to be doesn't always work. During a windstorm, in 1945, Equestrian Director Fred Bradna was crippled by a wild quarter pole.

On Franzen one day we had a pole that had not been tied off yet. A gust of wind blew the tent clear of the pin. I threw a shoulder into a guy and knocked him about 10 feet. He instantly gave me a WTF are you doing look until he saw that pole land right where he was standing.

I've seen several situations where

the bottom stake didn't captivate

the cable ring at the base of the

pole & the gust lifted the pole

but the pin often remained in the

top because the rope that was

wrapped & tied to the pole kept

it from falling loose
