Unread postby VaultnGus » Mon Sep 09, 2013 10:15 pm

Greetings from the Patriot Pole Vault Club. We are extremely pleased to announce that the 2013 New England Beach Vault will be held on Saturday, September 21st on Narragansett Town Beach in scenic Narragansett, Rhode Island.

This USATF sanctioned competition is open to all male and female competitors of ANY age no matter if just getting out of elementary school or enjoying a retirement full of pole vaulting

Meet Information

The competition will be held in two flights:

Flight #1 is for athletes opening at heights lower than 11 feet. We can start as low as 4'. Warm-ups for this flight will begin no later than 9:00am with the competition beginning at 10:00am.

Register for Flight #1

Flight #2 is for athletes opening at 11 feet or higher. Warm-ups for this flight will begin at the conclusion of flight #1. The competition will begin approximately one hour after the beginning of warm-ups but will begin no earlier than 1:00pm

Register for Flight #2

In addition for those athletes taking the ACTs in the morning we will do our best to accommodate you in flight #2 no matter what your starting height. If you are taking the ACTs and wish to compete please contact us or sign up for Flight #2A

Register for Flight #2A

The cost for this event is $50 and includes both entry fee and a New England Beach Vault t-shirt. Entry without a t-shirt is $30. Payments will be done on site. Checks may be made out to "Patriot Pole Vault Club"

USA Track & Field membership is required to participate in this meet. You may sign up for USATF membership at the meet if necessary.

While on-site registration will be available we STRONGLY suggest pre-registering online ahead of time to help us get an idea of how many vaulters to expect.

Other Notes

- We have purchased Chris Mitchell's Ultimate Runway - an amazingly fast hand built above ground runway. The runway is covered by a rubberized track surface so spikes will be allowed

- There is plenty of FREE parking at the beach in one of their parking lots right at the beach

- We will be bringing up a nearly full set of poles from the club for use by everyone. If you need to borrow a specific pole for the meet be sure to let us know ahead of time

- Coach Ken will be bringing down a massive serving of his world-famous chili and chicken tenders :-)

- Feel free to bring food and make this a "potluck pole vault meet"

Inclement Weather

As with all outdoor meets, a lot depends on Mother Nature. We are working on having a possible rain-date, but we may have to cancel in the event of poor weather. If the event is cancelled, we will make the call the day before. An email will be sent to the address associated with pre-registered athletes. We will also post updates on our website, our Facebook page and our Twitter feed.

If you have any questions please contact us via email (polevault@patriotpv.com) or call Coach Doug directly at 774-276-1617

We look forward to seeing lots of you vaulting ON THE BEACH!
