c that would allow them to represent their sponsors at the entrance to every event. The banner stands were modified to fit their needs, with holes drilled in the base plates for securing them to the ground, and screws in the rod poles to keep them from moving. With these being outdoors in the elements all day for tournament play, we had to make sure they were built to last. After some trial and error we also added a welded gusset to the base plate for even more stability. Those Rochester winds can get strong, but these were built to last! The best part about these stands is that they can have banners switched in and out for specific events just by removing a few screws.
