2015 Summer Meets!

UPDATE (6/28) - New event added at the bottom of list!!! Okay Masters, it's time to start looking for places to vault! I was hoping that anyone with information on meets that have "Open" or the even rarer "Masters" divisions could post them here. It occured to me that I could jus...

Re: Is the Olympic Inflate & Go PV pit really legit?

Intriguing. If the price were right this could make a good beginner's pit. As the current owner of a Cloud 9, I'd say the "inflate & Go"'s lower profile might solve some of the "land too close to the edge and get thrown out" issues that the Cloud 9 has. If it is at least as g...

Re: Pole Vault Scoring

This is preposterous of course. If the schools decide not to enter an athlete in an event, that should not penalize the schools who did. If this were the case, then it would be in the best interest of every school who does not have a chance to win points in a particular event ... to NOT enter anyone...

"Pole Chart" help

I need help fully understanding how to read the "pole progression" chart. My confusion is in moving across the chart. Example - a 12' 140# is listed as being equivalent to a 12'6" 130# and a 13' 120# Does this mean these poles are equivalent if you simple move your grip from where you...

Re: Shin Splints problem!

I hate to say it, but that has been my experience as well. I had them back in the day and did everything they are STILL saying you should do. Nothing "fixed" them. Icing them at night helped make it tolerable. laying off for a week or so made them "better" ... until the next time...

Re: Another OPEN meet coming up in Birmingham

A good time was had! I got to jump with Eric Negley and that is always fun. We were both suffering from the lack of practice jumps that comes with all of this winter weather. Of course, I still managed to overbend the pole that was supposed to be my "stiff" pole. Even with that though, I m...

Altius Pole Labels

It's that time of year again ... pre-season replacement of damaged pole labels.
Can anyone tell me where to look for the serial number on an Altius pole? I hate to start randomly removing grip tape looking for it.

Alternatively ... can anyone give me an email address for Altius?

Thanks.

Re: Looking for advice on buying standards

If you are like most HS athletes, you have more time than money. If you can't find someone (within driving distance) to donate some old standards to you ... build some. Got to your local Home Depot/Lowes find the isle with the PVC pipes and get creative. For a base ... a bag of quick-crete poured in...
