We finally have a list of a percentage of the missing poles that not only Vaulter Magazine donated, but the poles that the school bought. Somehow they walked in a short couple of years. Nothing else was missing from the bin, that was high value, just the poles. So if someone gave you these poles, they were wrong. They were not their poles to give away. A large amount of goods and gear still remained in the bin, to include many power tools that were brand new for raffling, hurdles, pole bags, chairs and other high end items. You would think that someone would see a person walking down the street with 26 plus poles.
Upon review, the powers that be already know that when the last coach left and moved out of state, he left the poles to a family. Said named family were reported to have stored the poles and that is the last known placement of the poles. Below you will see the pole inventory that we know are missing since the last inventory. There are quite a few more.
The sad part is the fact that these are school poles that belong to the kids. The school refunded the coach the money that he spent on the poles. So when you look down and check your flex and serial numbers and you find one of the missing poles, please contact us, the school, or the authorities.
Some will say that they may have broken; if this is the case, that is a lot of broken poles. None the less, someone knows where they are and once confronted they will eventually talk. The people or club that has these poles can easily do the right thing and bring the poles back to the bin prior to the season. In order for the future pole vaulters to use some poles they need to be returned.
This is why you always inventory the pole selection right away when you open the bin. Keep that inventory on hand and deliver it to the school so they have a copy prior to the coach leaving or a club coming on board. This is a practice that we use so that the school knows exactly what poles they have on hand. This way the school knows, the coach, and the club are all on the same page.
