Vol. 4 No. 56 Vaulting on a Pub Roof in Minneapolis August 30, 2014

We don't often talk about the present in this blog but there is a somewhat unique competition going on tomorrow in Minneapolis.   The Brit's Pub will be hosting a pole vault competition on their roof.
Yes, you read that correctly, on the roof.  See the link below for more information.

You might want to get there early as the event starts at 10:00AM  with Master's competition and runs through the evening, with a final event a professional contest at 7:00PM .   I can already imagine some antics that might go on at such a gathering like jumping out of the pit, over the rail, and into the street, but we can only hope that the organizers have put up catch fences and lined the street with mattresses.  Maybe  the event is jointly sponsored with the Mattress Factory.  I don't know.

We will look for the results and post them on this blog.   Good luck guys and gals, stay sober.

great pics  from the competition can be seen at the following link.
