3rd Annual MIT Prom Vault 2011 - Aug. 20th, 4pm

Unread postby barragan » Sun Aug 07, 2011 12:45 pm

The MIT Prom Vault is coming! Get on your formal wear, find a date, and come on over.

This year, the party will occur at MIT's outdoor track on Saturday, August 20th at 4pm (for warmups and registration). The meet will start at 5pm.

This amazing event is a pole vault meet in black tie attire. Here are the basics: Everyone needs to jump in formal wear. Everyone jumps in couples. Everyone needs to have tons of fun. Each couple will be scored by combining the place of both vaulters. The couple with the lowest combined places is crowned as prom royalty. (Almost like golf, but more like pole vaulting). The second and third couples place couples earn the amazing honor of being on the prom court.

Features include:

1) 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place couple prizes from MF Athletic (http://www.everythingtrackandfield.com/)

2) Live DJ mixing while you vault, and a dance floor to show off your moves.

3) Photographer to take Prom Pictures of you and your date for the event. I'm sure you're parents, other family members, and friends will want hundreds of copies of these.

4) A meet in which you get to jump in your suits and dresses!

5) Some light refreshments to hydrate and dehydrate you to your heart's content.
