Scouts-L Mail Archive for September of 1998: Old tents

Our troop recently found some very old canvas tents (8x10? approx.) in a
closet at the council office. They are not dome tents. Someone had cut out
squares from the floor of the tents, some zippers were no good and there are
the cross bars at the top missing.
Question is: can we find replacement cross bars for them? What about the
floor. Would I be able to sew new ones in and where could I find new zippers
to sew in. This is an inner city troop that doesn't have a lot of money and
if I can repair these four tents, we'd be ecstatic.
Thanks for any help you all can give me!
