Unlike the kid’s event I showed you yesterday, the Grease Pole Climb event is for adults and features a 30 foot (9 meters) tall pole. Like the kid’s event, the pole is covered in grease with two minutes to complete the task. Teams of 5 people competing in a men’s and women’s division for prizes totaling $1,000US. Plus, if a team reaches the top, there is a bonus of $200 in cash attached to the pole. Each team gets two attempts.
In the past, I have seen teams get to the top but not this year. The winning teams got to the 21 and 22 foot marks with the women’s team having the higher mark. The cash at the top is safe for another year and will be increased to $300. Anyone want to join me next year to take a shot at reaching the top?
