Dexter Daze Vault, Saturday, August 14th, 2021

Come and walk in the parade starting at Forest Street between Hudson and Inverness around 9:30 am. Carry poles, banners, hand out fliers. Show Dexter how much fun pole vaulting is and show them how popular it really is. Pits at Al Ritt field open at 11 am. Starting at noon, pit 1 will have the first bar at 11’6″ for those with PRs 12′ and above, and pit 2 will have the first bar at 9′ for those with PRs from 10′. Second groups will have warmups beginning around 3 pm, with pit 1 having the first bar at 7′ for those with PRs above 8′ and pit 2 having the first bar at 4’6 for those with PRs under 8′. Hey! Parents can jump, too if you were inspired by the Olympics and wish to prepare for 2024 or sooner. High Jump, Long Jump, and Shot put and Discus will all open at 11 am, too. Hope to see you all there. All alums and parents are invited. This is a low-key, fun, year-ending event for all to enjoy.
