February 4 to February 11 our crew erected four Tents totaling 30,500 ft.² in Des Moines to be used as temporary warehousing. Only one time in that week was the temperature greater than freezing. Most days with wind chill temps were in the single digits or negative. Total covered area was greater than half of football field including the end zones, and equal to more than 70% of an acre. Congratulations for a job well done Misael, CC, Bryce, Jose, Jorge, owen, Javier & Luis!
When we say we got a last minute phone call from Steve’s Old Time Tap in Rock Island, Illinois about a Saint Patrick’s Day tent, we mean at 10 pm (after we were closed) on March 16th the owner of Big Ten Rentals received a text message. The weather for Saint Patrick’s Day was going to be overcast and drizzling on and off for most of the day. So we set up a 30′ x 75′ frame tent with sidewalls to help block the wind. Luckily, the Irish kind, the event was held in a concrete parking lot so we used eyebolt tent anchors and didn’t need Iowa One Call or Concrete blocks. We were able to mobilize the staff and set up this amazing event. We hope to see them again next year.
We set up this 40′ x 60′ Hybrid event tent with three 2′ x 2′ x 2′ blocks. Because of the ever chaning weather in Iowa they needed patio heater to take the chill out of the air at night and to keep them going we sent four 20lb propane tanks.
Our 40′ x 80′ rope and pole tent were delivered and setup at a Muscatine Campground in Iowa. Definitely not the usual sized tent you see at a camp ground. We delivered black chairs, 60″ rounds, and set up the Edison lights under the tent. This was set up for a large class reunion.
