for the victory

Team Dempsey won the Saint Rocco greasy pole climb for the 10th time. This was the first successful climb of the pole in three years. As they were celebrating, four navy fighter planes flew over the parish in a diamond formation. The first four fotos below shows the final ascent. After the top guy touched and held the cross brace, the team stood straight on the pole celebrating. After they touched down, four navy fighter planes flew over the church campus.


  1. Did they use a different grease this year? It was red when I was there last.

  2. Yes, the grease has not been consistent. It seems i cannot add fotos here...
