November is here and by now you should be back to your five or six step training and learning all the necessary skills to be a proficient vaulter. With that comes some cool meets that have to do with traditions such as Thanksgiving and Christmas next month. At the Vaulter Facility we always have a thankful meet and at that meet we make sure and take the time to have the athletes write a note to the parents expressing their thankfulness. When the parents walk in, they get the handwritten note from their athlete. Always a great way to start off the day and a thankful meet.

On the cover we have a club out of Illinois named Rise Pole Vault. “Tim Winder taught his sons the three big rules about the pole vault:

1) If you run through, you get worse.

2) If you take a jump up but do not finish it, you stay the same.

3) If you finish your jump, no matter how ugly, you get a little bit better. “

What a great teaching experience and article to read from a set of club coaches with years of experience.

It is impressive to read these articles that Daniel Bush submits to us each month. This one is a Halloween themed article that flows with the last couple articles over the last few months. “Annie stole the show once again, her braided blonde pig tails bouncing behind her as she bounded down the runway. After nailing another big jump, the roaring applause of the crowd drew a satisfying smile from this emerging elite athlete.” Better and better each month as this true professional shows us how the writing world manages business and a pole vault family all in one.

We all have so much to be thankful for and Abby explains some of and one of the nicest gestures that one of her athletes handed her this time of the year. “It can make us forget just how blessed we are to be able to compete in this amazing sport called pole vaulting! When you stop and think about it for a minute you realize that you can do something that many people never will get to.” Being thankful is peaceful for the mind and soul. Thank you, Abby, very cool.

Next month we have the Naval Academy on the cover, and they always represent in a spectacular way. We will see you next month with some Christmas cheer.

May is that time of the year when your anxiety starts to grow for the end of school and start of summer. Summer meets, summer fun to include the sport of pole vaulting. From this year on May, we will begin our annual month of Hall of Fame and Lifetime Achievement awardees for the magazine.

With that said, we had a Vaulter Magazine Hall of Fame celebration for Don Hood and Carl Erickson at Baylor University for this occasion. The event was epic with the awards given to each of the recipients by Olympic Gold and Silver Medalist Jenn Suhr at Baylor University. Friends and family gathered to see these men that provided such prestige to their athletes in their younger years. Pole vaulters from the past came to mark this celebration and Stuart Kantor wrote and excellent article annotating the event.

“Says Payne of the Golden Age at Baylor: “The combination of coaching and those three guys [Hodge, Cooper, Shafe] is kind of what got me going.” Payne, mentored by Erickson, set and still holds many Baylor records. “

A great friend of Vaulter Magazine a supporter from day one and a confidante that can be counted on. “While many elite vaulters begin to coach in place of competing when they retire, few are lucky enough to make as much of an impact on the pole vaulting community as Bob Olsen.” Bob Olsen is a Masters Vaulter now and has vaulted his way through a majority of his life. Kreager Taber takes the time to write about Bob and open a window into his life as a pole vaulter and a coach. Good job Kreager!

John Clark is back, and he never ceases to make us laugh and think about his journey as a Masters Pole Vaulter. “When I woke up around 8 o’clock that Sunday morning to the sounds of howling wind, booming thunder, and pouring rain outside my hotel room, I pretty much knew the Texas Senior Games vaulting competition was going to be a wash-out.” Read the rest of the story and see what John is up to and who he is writing about this month.

As we finish may and honor those pole vaulters of the past, we will get some insight into the club world and the pole vaulters that make the summer season happen. See you all in June!
