Re: NCAA Mandates new ASTM Box Collar by Dec 2013

What is the best laser measuring device for pole vault competitions? Is it a laser measuring device that can be picked up at the hardware store or the really expensive stuff at Gill or UCS or....?

Re: 2 random pit pieces for sale - $50 per (Elsah, IL)

The pits are sold. I have to look at what I will need for next year versus selling them all right away. I'll have to look at my inventory and post what I am going to out up for sale.
