Thanks again.

Just wanted the readers here (that is, you, I guess) to know I wasn't
the only one with this question.

He clearly has the same kind of hoop I have, and neither of the answers
will help him.

I don't think there is any nylon cord thin enough to wrap around the
pegs, , but yes, I can tie it on with plastic ties, like bunches of
wires are tied together with, or the paper things with wire embedded in
them that are used to tie up the end of a bag of bread. That's what
I'll suggest to anyone who claims it.

Oh, and I put it in my car so if I'm near a sporting goods store or a
college game, I can ask there. I still want to satisfy my curiosity.
