Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

I've been using four 50lb weights from my 10x10 Trimline.  Doing my first double booth this weekend with a 10x20 Trimline.  The weight bags I use would be a bit obtrusive on the center poll as they are fairly large and I was planning on putting panels there.  Do people still use weights on 4 legs on a 10x20 or typically use weights on 6 legs?

Six weights, or you could run the risk of the tent buckling along the 20 foot dimension. If you have panels in the center, use the partial Sta-Bar French door arrangement and use saddle bag style weight bags draped over the bottom Sta-Bar. You've got twice the surface area as before, the wind does not give you a discount on force; it's twice as much as before. I'd be inclined to bump up the corner weights to 75 pounds.
