Basketball goal

I installed a basketball goal last night.

Its not really at all difficult. The hardest part was digging the hole.

Dig a hole 18 inches across and 24 inches deep. Fill it with concrete.
(It took 3 80 pound bags for me)

Take the bottom piece of the pole, and make a mark at 14 inches from
the
bottom.

Put the bottom post in the concrete and grab a level, and level it.
Make
sure the 14 inch mark is flush with the top of the concrete.

You also need to make sure that the mounting holes are aligned so that
the backboard will be parallel to the playing surface.

Now gather the family and the family pet and make sure to put hand
prints in the cement.

We covered the pole as shown because it was supposed to rain.

The concrete needs to set for a couple days before putting the rest of
it together, so ill post more as I do more.
