With Dance Crossed out, and FLY written above it.


Something like "Extreme Pole Dancing" with a pic of a vaulter would be kinda funny.

Here's one I just thought of. The happiest moment in my life was when I had a pole in my hand. No I'm not a whore...I am a pole vaulter!

[quote="HHSPVCoach"]I've always thought a vaulter could come up with their own version of the Snipers creed. Go ahead, give it a try.

My Rifle (The Creed of a United States Marine)

This is my rifle. . .

Not to be unkind, but this is not the "Snipers Creed". This is the USMC Marksman Creed intended for EVERY Marine.

Every Marine must qualify regardless of rank whether OCS or USMC recruit depot originated. And you used to have to requalify every year regardless of rank, and also because you used to get additional $$ for maintaining Expert or Sharpshooter qualifications. I'd put the USMC rifle team up againest anyone in uniform.

I wonder if we could hold a Biathon consisting of vaulting and shooting? ;)

As quoted above:

"princeps herba princeps salire

Latin for: high plant, high jump "

With Latin being a somewhat dead language it is hard to translated "plant" as in planting a pole. However a closer translation should read:

"Alto fissare, alto salire"

Alto as in "high" or "tall".
Fissare as in to "fix" , "put-in" or "secure down".
Salire as in to "jump".

I saw this on twitter. With Drake's new song "Started from the Bottom."

"Started from the bottom, now we're here."
