I never use footings, but if the holes are to small you can always meke em bigger.

Figjam, how do you secure your EMT conduit posts to the ground? Last year's small camp they drilled out holes in the EMT and used nuts on both sides of the hole to hold a screw that secured it to 3' of 3/8" rebar, but that seems like a terrible idea considering it will weaken the EMT, make the EMT want to buckle, and be an absolute nightmare to adjust.

Current camp plan for those following my fumblings:

For anyone intending to recreate the cost, be warned I saved $100 reusing the vet's section (two 10x12s)
