Need relays, poles at LSU nationals? USATF pair have you covered

Aiming to improve the mid-July Baton Rouge nationals, USATF officials Jeff Brower and Bill Murray are working hard behind the scenes. Jeff sends word that he’s created this online tool for people looking to join a 4×100, 4×400 or 4×800 at LSU. Also the shuttle hurdles. (You can form an “ad hoc” foursome if you don’t have a club.) “Your email address IS protected from spam-mining software,” Jeff says. “Don’t fill this out unless you want your contact information available for others to contact you.” He says he’ll delete the contact data after nationals. Bill, the record-setting decathlete now on the Games Committee, writes: “Masters Track now has over 30 poles that will be available at all the Masters National T&F Championships, starting in Baton Rouge, LA. The pole list is available here. We are still accepting tax-deductible donations. We have raised over $5,000 to date but still need about $3,000 more. If you are feeling generous, make your check payable to Masters Pole Vault Program and mail it to: Carroll DeWeese, MTF Treasurer, 932 Purdy, Birmingham, MI (yes, Michigan) 48009.”

USATF masters-branded poles will be shipped around the country as needed.

    Enter one of our National Masters Indoor/Outdoor Championships and they will supply the shots/discuses/javelins/hurdles/starting blocks/long jump – high jump – pole vault pits, but airlines make it difficult to ship a vault pole. So it is a good thing that a variety of poles will be available. Not so good that Masters T&F is forced into fundraising for this, but a check for $30.00 is on its way.
