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 just update this first post instead of continuing to add to the bottom -

June 5th - Jumps and Throws Meet at Birmingham Southern College, Al - USATF, "Open" (info trakbird2@bellsouth.net)

Aug. 8th/9th - 2015 Jammin' and Jumpin' Street Vault in Downtown Henderson, Ky. online registration is now open! August 8 & 9 http://www.smtrackclub.com This one was GREAT last year. They let us old guys vault in the cool of the evening on Friday night and still had a good crowd!

Nice idea to start this tread.

Here's a good resource I use in addition to the USATF site. This covers most of the eastern states (Mid-Atlantic & parts of the Northeast). There are many open/masters meets to sift through, not all have pole vault.

http://www.easternregionalmasterstrack.com/ Kudos to Fred for creating and maintaining this great resource.

Best of luck to us all, stay healthy and vault high!

Here's a frustration I'm experiencing again this summer - conflicts. I'm not talking about family, work, etc. conflicting with masters meets - that is always happening. What really gets my goat is that when masters meets in my area (with PV) conflict with other masters meets in my area (with PV).

Take for instance the Mid-Atlantic (Philly area) USATF association is having their masters/open meet the same day as the NJ USATF association is having theirs. Both are about the same distance away for me, and I usually do both. The following month, the NY USATF assoc. is having their meet the same day as the Long Island Assoc. is hosting the Eastern Regional USATF Masters Championship. I would have liked to do both of them as well.

So here's 4 outdoor Masters meets in my area, and I can only possibly do two because they are conflicting with themselves. I feel robbed, masters meets are so rare. Don't these associations talk to each other? Do they realize that they are competing for a limited pool of masters athletes? There are 4 weekend each month to choose from. I'm especially surprised by the Eastern Region Championship and the NY meet conflict. The two meets will be going on less than 25 miles apart from each other. Will there even be enough officials to cover both meets happening on the same day?
