  5. Definately 10 star pieces, and 10 small poles, (5 small poles in each bag), 10 T pieces, 15 angles, 50 long poles, (25 each bag). 22 long pegs. 2 long ties, 3 short ties. I'm probably wrong, but it was 20 odd years ago I put one up. Kin hated the things. Bad dreams tonite me thinks.

  7. Some RAF TCW bastard wrote "30 PIGS" on my tent with an aerosol.
  8. Do you get invited to many parties?
  9. Only if someone needs him to bring a tent.
  10. AESPs?

  11. Only if he has a fit sister/mother and he brings her and promises to sit in the corner all night without saying a word or touching anything...
  12. top tip - folding it corectly when putting it away is key, so when putting it over the semi-erected (oh err) frame you can lift partly unfolded tent on to apex (so it covers the length of the top bar) then unfold/roll out the sides.

  13. 12 x 12
    Set Includes: 22 x Poles, 9 x Angles, 6 x Tees
