    Don't get me wrong.. I love the idea.. However without any structure tying it to the ground it is simply an airfoil. As the wind blows it will want to spin due to the differential air pressure. You could use hiking poles to secure a single side or opposite corners to the ground and I think you could say... Problem solved. ... Then again, in very high winds, say something like 30+mph, an airfoil is an airfoil. It will want to 'fly'

    Double the amount of fabric, and use hoops instead of bows. If the tarp is a cylinder, it won't matter if it spins.

    I think you are on the right track
    but you may need some ideas because you still have guy lines at the ends

    here is another some direction that you may be able to incorporate into your design.

    Think I'll scrap the idea as it's going to end up too complex/heavy. Thanks for all the input!
