I came across a 2003 model Catapole at our school and cannot determine whether the label is to face the pit at takeoff or the vaulter. It reads "this side up" but the thing has no pre bend and
Just needed some input. Suggestions?

The up side would be toward the pit (away from the vaulter) on take-off. Verify by flexing it.
