Summer Practices, All-Comers, and Street Meets

We've got a nice new top pad for the pit that needs to get some quality use. 

Summer Practices are about to get started.
Our first Session will be an Open Pit here at Team Tuxedo this Saturday 6/21 at 10am
$20 to vault and get some high quality coaching.
Please RSVP, and let us know if you will be needing any poles. If you don't have a liability waiver on file, email me for a copy if you are under the age of 18 and your parent will not be on site to fill one out for you. 

I will start posting practice dates and times here and on facebook. I am getting a lot of requests for Wednesday nights, so that will most likely start happening. 

Other things to put in your calendar. 
Street Vaults!
Team Tuxedo will be hosting 2 Street Vaults here in Auburn, Ca at the Power Club Microbrewery on Friday Aug 8th, and Sep 12th during Auburns Cruise Night, Classic Car Show. The cost will be $30/ athlete and will include a hot sandwich and a drink (microbrew if you are over 21) provided by the Power Club. We will have food and drink available for sale and a beer garden for parents and fans, a DJ and an MC. Full event details will be coming soon as I finish the flier, liability waiver, and registration forms. You won't want to miss out on these events. 
I will be hosting a series of weekend All-Comers Meets to raise money to pay more Elite Vaulters from around the country to be able to travel and compete at the Sep. 12th event. Details on those dates and times to follow shortly.  

There are also a lot of other great Nor Cal PV events coming up.
