Had that happen too last year.

Did some Promotion for Char Griller Europe on Sylt ( german north sea island) and my "booth" was two of
those cheapo tents. (Thank you Thomas Evil or Very Mad ).

Needless to say, it didnt even take 15 Minutes to blow em both to scrap metal and from then on it was an open air event for me.
Thx god it lastet "only" 6 days and it rained cats and dogs on 5 of them. Neutral

Lesson learned : Pay some more and get a quality quicktent, just imagine that tent had blown away while you werent on site, knocked over the excel ( Shocked )
and set something on fire.

Have you got a site for the one you got Marco, so I can get an idea of what to look for?

I havent got one yet ( cause theres always some new pig roaster or excel smoker thrown
into my way that gets higher $$$ priority Evil or Very Mad ) but if i buy one it will be one of those :

Very heavy duty and high quality and still easy and fast to set up
. At the berlin bbq championchips 2007 we had some of those supplied by weber europe
and they were totally awesome tents.

Those hardware store or ebay cheapos are really only good to secure you from the sun on a hot day,
but as soon as wind comes up theyre gone. Seen it so many times i wont bother buying one anymore.
