PV Club - How to?

Hello. I have been working with another coach for a few years, volunteer coaching area HS vaulters. He and I have long been searching for a building we can set up to vault in and it is possible we have finally found a space. Problem is, now that we may have finally found one, we are now faced with t...

2016 Kentucky Senior Games

Just wanted to say we had a great time at Sunday's Kentucky Senior Games. We had a good group of vaulters, the weather turned out nice and the facility was top notch. My first time to jump a bar in a year or so and it was UGLY but ALWAYS fun to hangout with vaulters and get to do some jumping. Favor...

Re: Tako grip tape?

I have applied it in both directions as well as carefully cleaning all foreign substances off the pole before applying.
I still had problems with that stuff rolling down.
It has a great feal to it but I can't get it to stay put on the pole and won't be buying more.

Re: Crack at Top of a UCS Pole

Hello.
I was just wondering how this turned out for you.
I have a UCS with a similar crack. I jumped with it a few times last year and it didn't seem to spread but I was always wondering about it.

The link indicates this meet was held back on June 17th. Any chance that is a misprint and should be July 17th ?

Re: need help to ship poles

There was a time when you could ship them by Greyhound bus!
Don't know if they still do that. You have to go to the station to pick it up and it takes a while for the bus to get it there but it worked.
