While the umbrella was GREAT, the umbrella mechanism broke. There were sharp wires sticking out everywhere. It appeared it would no longer exist as a refuge from rain.
When we attend Ranger Baseball games, we invariably take FOOD. ( My daughter informed me that one item we "always" took to the game was BBQ potato chips. "I don't know if I really like BBQ potato chips or not, but we ALWAYS had them when we went to Ranger games," she said.
Regardless of the menu - we take food to the game. And we have to carry the food in some kind of bag.
This is where the umbrella fits into this story.
I took apart the fabric for the umbrella, rotated the blue triangles, resewed and created a bag for FOOD!!
It just "fell" together. Everything I cut fit perfectly!! And it functioned excellently at OPENING DAY.
What a day for a win!
