YES 
AGE GROUPS
-Combined Age Groups IF necessary due to a small number of gymnasts? YES-15,  NO-11.
What is a small number: 3, 5?
-Do not combine age groups?    YES-8 or NO-13
Paul: Age groups are set up for specific reasons. Is it fair to combine 8 year olds with a 13 year old?  Competition Directors will make this call. The Membership wants it but the age grouping must be fair.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FOR NEW YORK STATE ONLY: The State Championship Format (large State Championships - 2-3 days) will be to group Teams by Number of gymnasts per level, per age division: small, medium, large, extra large. This is an experiment. I have done this format at the Team Cup. This will be re-evaluated after the State Championships. NYS DOWNSTATE ONLY: Yes-4    No-2     Simple Majority Wins.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Eliminate Bronze Diamond and Copper 2.
Copper 2: Yes-1, No-21 
Bronze Diamond Yes-1, No-21 
Both Levels Remain Competition Options
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SAFETY ISSUE? Allow a Coach to stand by the vaulting Table to assist their gymnast if necessary. NO VOTE REQUIRED. Coaches can stay near their gymnasts at all events including Floor.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SKILL Recommendations.
1. Copper Pull-Over Mount should be an “A”. YES-14    NO-13 - Not Approved height/degree of cast.
2. Allow Silver Gymnasts to perform Free Hip to Handstand. YES-4 NO-21
Paul: If a gymnast is that proficient they can compete Gold UB and do as many “C”’s elements as they wish because one “C” at Gold level is a bonus. This is the reason we allow OUR gymnasts to compete one level up on two events
6 maximum in a USAIGC Competition.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Eliminate the 3 Competition Rule Requirement. NO PAUL. 
This would allow gymnasts who have not truly competed in USAIGC/IAIGC into our program for WHAT?.
We will never allow a gymnast to enter our program and compete ONE TIME and qualify to States/Regionals/Worlds. Please keep these Gymnasts in their initial program.
We do not need PART TIME USAIGC Gymnasts.

MARY NO VOTE NEEDED: C1 gymnasts who qualify for their State Championship, compete as C1 gymnasts. It is not mandatory to move up to C2 UNLESS they attain the mandatory move-out score of 37.85. 

NO VOTE REQUIRED ON THESE RECOMMENDATIONS
-A USAG Gymnast cannot compete in the USAIGC if they participated in a USAG sectional or above Competition.
-NEW RULE: A USAG Gymnast switching from USAG to USAIGC must put a request into the USAIGC Office to verify their level for USAIGC and that meet our requirement to enter USAIGC. This form will be created by Mary.
-Allow Powdered/Block Chalk – industrial standard at USAIGC Competitions. Those using this Chalk currently must bring it to the USAIGC Competition. The Chalk is acceptable and safe. I cannot make it mandatory. 

-The USAIGC will create Formal USAIGC Registration Form to be be used for all USAIGC Competitions. 
Suggestions Please! Forward me your perfect Athlete Registration Form and ANY OTHER USAIGC FORM we can make standard for Competition Directors, Coaches & Club Owners. 

Competition Directors I will create a new Competition Registration Form for our website.
It will include:
a. entry deadline, b. entry fees for All Around and Individual Event Specialists c. Team Fees,
D. Attendance Fees. This will be part of the Free Sanction Form 

-Competition Directors send me what you would want on our USAIGC Website Entry Form so I can have our webpage developer create this for next season.
- Can the USAIGC attach a link that displays the flyer or informational sheet provided by the host gym. YES.
It must be a PDF file. Someone please create this who is a competition Director and I will begin creating one.

THANK YOU ALL. 
If your idea did not make it this year. Try again in 2019
It would also be helpful if 75% of the membership voted. Our Competitive Program is OURS!!!
Mary nor I VOTE.
