You should dig a hole that is about 2 feet deep, you should get a pole which is 2 inches thick and 12 feet long. Place the pole into the hole so that 10 foot of it is sticking out of the ground. Fill the hole with cement and wait for it to dry. This should be enough to keep the pole in place when swinging the ball.

Pellet will not stay in chamber of pellet gun

The chamber may be worn. The pellet is just big enough to stay in the chamber without falling out. A worn chamber will allow this to happen.

How can I attach a ball to a rope to make a tetherball game?

You can buy a tetherball ready made - however if money is tight you could always make your own by attaching a rope to a volleyball, you can make a hole in the sponge ball and pass the rope through it and tie a huge knot at the bottom.

What is tetherball?

Tetherball is a fun sport where two contestants swing a volleyball that is attached to a pole with rope. The idea is that one contest will swing it clockwise and the other anticlockwise - a player wins when they manage to swing the ball so that it is wrapped around the pole and can't swing any further.

I need to stand 2 poles up on either side of my yard for Christmas I plan to run lights down from the top and I need to support the pole for all of winter it will be about 7-9ft and I will have 16 strands...

A 10 foot stick of 1 1/4" or so of electrical EMT conduit would probably work:

The conduit is easily driven into the ground using water. Just pour some water on the ground and start working the conduit up and down in the same spot, add more water as needed until the conduit is in the ground 2 or 3 feet.

Purchase one 1 1/4" EMT connector to fit on the top end of the conduit. That connector can be screwed into a 1 1/4" galvanized floor flange from the plumbing dept.

Drill the (1/4"dia. or so) 16 holes around the perimeter of the flange for each strand. Maleable iron is easy to drill.

The conduit should be fairly secure by itself but you could use small diameter steel guy wire (14 ga. or so) and some tent stakes for added support. 4 should be enough.

Peg out the "brown" ground sheet of the inner tent and hold it up like a standard ridge tent.
Put the two shorter upright poles on the inside of the compartment (with something under the feet to prevent damage to the ground sheet). Put the 40mm tubes on the spike that pokes through, and then put the ridge pole on the outside.
Everything should then hold in place while you put the fly sheet over the top with the 2 longer poles at the front.......

tip - line up the seam on the fly sheet with the front of the inner tent as you peg it out....
Good luck
