-Cost: $15 (for $2 you may purchase an extra attempt at each height)

I am currently working to create an Elite Flight that will be USATF Sanctioned! I will keep everyone updated as we go through this process for the first time!

- Warm-up time will be limited between flights, a small break may be taken at 14’ for warm ups for those coming in at higher bars

*There will be two PV pits available- Flights, starting times, and starting heights are subject to change based on the number of entrants*

18 days until the Redhawk Twilight Vaultfest! We've received some great feedback so far!

**Change**- We will not have a USATF Sanctioned Elite flight. It is something we will be working on to have in the future. We will still have an Elite flight with a bar starting around 15'+ for any and all vaulters interested!

-Happy Vaulting

As we say at NCHS- it's Redhawk Weather. The plan is to run the meet! So far the map is looking clear for our start and maybe a little wet throughout but keep your "no-rain" dances going folks! Hopefully see you all soon!

Vaulters and Friends-

I would like to start by saying thank you for participating in the 3rd Annual Redhawk Twilight Vaultfest. We came out and challenged the weather and almost walked away dry by the end of the night! Unfortunately, the rain did come and we had to call the meet before everyone could get a chance to PR. We had a record turn out this year- 45 competitors! Attached to this email are the results from the meet for all those interested- we had 12 PR or Tied PR performances- Congrats to all of you especially! If you notice any errors in the results or any missed PRs please let me know! Also, I will try and post pictures from the meet on our Facebook page sometime this week you can check them out at https://www.facebook.com/events/490144414391203/ .

I would also like to take a moment to thank everyone who helped us run the meet-

To those who helped run pits and move standards- Steve, Eric, Kristen, Brock, Kevin, Kevin, Jake, Barb, and Greg!

To Steve Wiesbrook and Andy Lutzenkirchen- The Boy’s Track and Field Head Coach and AD at Central

To our awesome and amazing sponsors who help make this event possible, without your support we couldn’t do it!
- Sue and Rick @ S&R Monogramming
- Kris @ Naperville Running Company
- Michael @ The Athletic Equipment Source
- Linda @ NICU Solutions
- Dr. Turner @ Turner Pain and Wellness Center
- Bill @ KH Renovations

Thank you all again and look for us on Facebook, PoleVaultPower.com and from me for next year’s meet at the end of July next year!!
