Get yourself a bunch of 2x4's and some carriage bolts, washers and wing
nuts. Build the uprights like you would the corner in a house - two 2x4's
with scraps of 2x4 between them. The scrap between creates a space that a
perpendicular 2x4 will just slide into. Place the scrap so that the 2x4
that slide in sits on top of the scrap between the doubled up 2x4's. Run a
carriage bolt through the intersection and throw the washer and wing nut on
it. Don't go crazy trying to brace the thing seven ways to Sunday until you
put it all together and see how rigid the assembly is. Even then, use
minimum bracing. Remember - this is not a house, it's a game booth and it
will see little use. Set up and knock down are as important as making
something that will withstand the next 8.5 earthquake.
It's a front made with a counter for taking tickets and issuing footballs.
Stands on its own, with a signboard on 2x posts.
Back is a pair of uprights braced and/or weighted against tumbling,
supporting the blanket with the hole, and the sloped blanket used to end the
flight of the ball..
Now, if outside, you can spike them in place through predrilled holes and
hang a tarp across.
