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.

My goodness, what a month the month of September was for the sport of pole vault. Lifting, running, working out, it is all the rage! Keep your chin up and continue to work hard.

On the cover of the magazine, we have Megan Clark. Megan has helped coach at our club, supported our magazine, and we have watched her jump for years. Megan was slotted in February 2020; October 2020 was the release date. This article was a long time coming for her previous sponsor. This October the magazine is all about her and her previous sponsor Fibersport Poles, that paid to make it all happen. Some aspects have changed since the article was written months prior, but the journey is all the same. Please enjoy!

John Clark brings to you a Masters spotlight with Ken St. Cyr. “Masters vaulter Ken St. Cyr graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1974, served six years in the Army, earned a Masters degree from the University of Southern California, and enjoyed a successful career that took him all around the world.” We know Ken and his life is already full of achievements and this article and his pole vaulting is just another notch in his belt.

David Brannan writes about a clean take-off compared to a free take of this month.“Many coaches think that a free takeoff means an athlete's foot leaves the ground before their pole strikes the back of the box and that it is essential for a successful jump. However, there a few 6-meter vaulters, the current world record holder included, who consistently step under at take-off.” Great little piece to read and he plans to have a few more that he posts as well. Good job!

We are looking forward to October as the training starts to build for the next season. We don’t know about you, but we will have a fall/winter, and spring season as we continue to have meets for kids to get their marks. As a privately owned club on private property, we have that option. November 7th, 2020 will be our first meet in our four-meet series that will conclude at the 2021 EXPO Explosion in Belton, Texas. Hopefully, we will see you all there. Could be the only large format meet for the pole vault community in January.
