I am on the hunt for pole events all over the globe.  I know I am missing a lot of events from the UK and other areas of the world.  I would like to ask for your help!  Please check out my Google doc (live link below plus I have pasted the events I have as of today into this blog), and then leave a comment with a link to YOUR event so I can update my list.
