Im going, and its going to be a lot of fun. Its what we train for all year, and theres no doubt in my mind that i will be prepared better for this meet than any other meet this year. The opportunities are endless. It will be so much fun travelling with all the athletes in our club too, i believe 7 athletes will be with us.

About the jumping, i hear the facility is amazing and the atmosphere is unreal. There will probably be 2 groups of guys jumping like last year, and they will divide them evenly based on PR's. Last year the cut off was 16'3 or so, i believe. Im not sure what it is this year. As for the competition, there are at least 5 guys who have jumped 17+ so it should be pretty intense!! See you guys there!

yeah, i believe the cut off is lower because the opening height is says for elite or w/e is only 14'7.5, last year it was 15'2.5. Im not sure but there weren't that many signed up when i looked. Maybe thats why. BUt he place is great, really fast. Haha and only like 15 minutes from my house, i'm really lucky! Can't wait to compete again.

Where did you find the entry list and height increments? I don't see it on their website.

The side note on their website stated that the only athletes on the list were the ones that signed up before June 2. One of my girls didn't get signed up until June 3rd so she's not on there yet either.
