If it is relevant to anyone, the following is the email Steve Vaitones of USATF New England sent out about the meet:
The MIT Pole Vault Club is hosting two more meets before the end of August.
The meet will be held at Steinbrenner Track at MIT, Cambridge MA.
On Saturday, August 22, with the cooperation of MITPVC and USATF New England, the meet will be a team scoring competition.
This idea has been talked about for several years in several formats, but if it doesn't get off the ground (pun intended) this year, it's another year of talk
The meet is USATF sanctioned.
Clubs - USATF members only from any association, no pick-up clubs - will be scored based on the combined heights of top 2 men, top 2 women, and combined men/women.
Unattached are welcome, but the aim is to further strengthen the vault club group that is growing in New England (and beyond).
All competitors must be USATF members or members of their home federation.
Club affiliation will be based on the club of USATF membership if there are any questions or multiple club memberships.
The fee is $15 per athlete.
There may be videotaping of the comeptition
Even if your club is not quite in championship season mode, or if you only have either women or men, we hope you will field a scoring squad in at least one division
There will be some awards and some refreshments.
Club coaches/captains should encourage athletes to select opening heights which will ensure at least one clearance so all clubs will have a score.
for details, and contact Patrick Barragan directly for specific directions
Note: This meet does NOT have the opportunity to move inside so keep an eye on the weather; we'll let clubs know if there are issues.
We hope to see you at the first NE PV Club Challenge competition
