Nice! Might try something like this at summer camp this summer.The only thing I don't like about this design is the staked-out lines at the base, which create a tripping hazard. How about securing the guy lines to the base of the center pole? If they are all reasonably taut, it might keep it from swaying (although it might still spin a little).
I love this method! In the past, my Scouts have either used a tedious method whereby you feed the entire rope through each slot, or a "bight" method that only resulted in one pass over each spar. The fact that this method creates two passes over each spar, and yet is still incredibly simple, makes me think, "Why didn't I think of this first?"Thank you for posting it here! We will be using it at Scout-o-Rama this year, and I'm sure it will speed things up tremendously.
