Re: Looking for camps

Oh yea, I forgot about the Jan Johnson camp @ Kutztown Univ. in PA. I think there is/was a camp in Reading, PA - Fiberbenders or something like that. I just received via email a brochure from Monmouth University in NJ for several summer PV camps. They don't look like they are providing housing, but ...

Spirit 13-125 Fort Plain, NY

Found on Craigslist, may still be available. Near Utica, NY. Asking $400. Don't PM me about the pole, it's not mine and I don't know anything about it, just sharing it as many of us are looking for poles.

Re: Lots of things wrong with my vault

It's good that you recognize that there is a lot of things going wrong. I see several. I'm going to point them out and give you my suggestions, and hopefully, so videos that help you see how it's done correctly. 1.

Re: Tall female vaulter and the swing

In this video, she is about 1 shoe length in/under, and she throws her head back. I also noticed she drops her right knee, doesn't whip the left leg, then draws both legs in rather than driving the right knee and staying long during the swing with a vigorous whip/kick of her left leg. She needs some...

Re: Differences in Pole Brands?

Weight label and placement only matter to High School -- old farts like us can hold anywhere that allows us to get safely into the pit. Uh, yea.....but that wasn't my question. Let me ask it a different way. On a Spirit Pole, given that the weight band (and max grip) is a good 6" from the top ...
