Well, I don't have a source for them, but I *DO* have a technique that
may help with the lightweight ones.
If you don't put up as high as you can, it will work better in the
wind. Use about half the length of the pole at the center, and stake the sides
down right on the ground. That way, the wind won't be able to get underneath
it as much and blow it away/apart/down.
