Don't forget that to see Southwest's prices you have to go to their website, they are not on Travelocity/Expedia/anyothersite

It's not cheap to fly in and out of Hawaii. When do you start school? It might be cheaper for you to fly back to school first and then fly to Reno from there.

So far on Facebook, 282 people have said they are coming, 636 said maybe, 727 said no, and 573 are MIA (have not replied to the event request).

If you are on Facebook, be sure to invite all of your pole vaulting Facebook friends to the event!

Does anyone know if the top jumpers on the guys side in the nation are attending such as Kevin Schipper, Corey Shank, Nico Weiler, and Justin Gebicki? I am debating if I should come now since the signing date has been moved, I think I need to get serious about early indoor like I did last year.

Nico was there last year, I would think he would come unless he goes home to Germany for Christmas and is not back in time.

Corey has already said on here he is not coming.

Geez. I thought I had more time. I need to figure this out. I really want to go, first time, and hope I figure it all out. Any info or key points to know?

Fly in Thursday, leave Sunday, reserve your hotel rooms, don't forget to register for the Summit via their website, figure out what you are doing for poles, save up $$ for food/drink/gambling if you are 21+.

Always remember to check Southwest's fares via their website, they don't show up on any other site (Travelocity, etc).
