So, Lynn went to town to look. At the store everything was way tooooo expensive so he went and bought the wood and a woodworker made the backboards, edged and painted them. He took the basketball hoop and asked if a metal worker could make another one just like it. Sure. The hard part was getting them attached to the poles. But with a little help that was done, too.
