If you remember from the other blog, I shipped my poles to Australia on September 6, five weeks before the competition on October 13. Well, at long last, I picked them up at the airport today three weeks after I competed. Other than the many shipping and customs stickers, they look great and are in perfect shape. Thanks again to Essx founder and pole maker, Bruce Caldwell, who also handled the shipping arrangements for me. Bubba
PS - Bruce I'm going to need a 4.30m/15.1 and 14.8 before Reno. Thanks!!
