Do you have the size of the peices of your pattern yet. I can give you the measurments. Make sure that in your efforts not to have guide ropes that you put your self in
safty issues. Poles are heavy falling down and if you have children in the tent you do not want to have them get hit in the head if a storm should show up. Side poles with
ropes is not a bad thing. You do not need to have ropes from the center pin. 

Scalloped dags and flowers is a really nice look for the dags with trim along the edge. Welcome to the list we usually have a lot more people on it but with all the camping
activities plus wars. People are getting tents ready. Margeurite
