One free show has landed me 2 paid events with another in the works.
I wasn't planning on doing this every weekend but it looks like I may have a pretty busy summer.

Here's my setup from the weekend.





Setup was breeze. And everything ran as expected. The customer just wanted to play music videos  from YouTube so I put my chRomecast into party mode and everyone was able to add video's to the queue.

We even did a little karaoke towards the end of the night.

I will be investing in some cam jams for the tie downs, or learn better knots. The clips that came with the screen are a complete joke.

I need more gigs, this stuff is just too much fun.

I wanted a simple way to secure my screen, so I replaced hooks with carabiners on the rachet straps, and found better stakes.  The stakes are Snow Peak, they have a big hook and a ring. I put a 5/16 quick link into the ring to attach the carabiner.  Don't know if this will help on the screen side, but the these work great on the ground anchor side.
