Create a separate Vault Chart for Gold Level Gymnasts with Higher Start Values (above 9.50). Non-Voting Issue: this rule would not reward our Gold Level gymnasts who have chosen to compete a more difficult vault. Example:  Handspring vs. Flipping Vaults. NO VOTE REQUIRED  
Allow an extra swing for Bronze without a penalty: 
This is already allowed at the Bronze level. Mary tempered the deduction on the LB from a Back Hip Circle to receive a .15 deduction instead of the usual .3. This deduction separates technical performances a bit.
NO VOTE REQUIRED

NEW for 2015-2016 – NO VOTE REQUIRED
1. Regional Qualification SCORES will be ONE POINT ABOVE the STATE CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFYING SCORE for each competitive level. TBD after worlds
2. Mandatory Gymnast Move out: Any Gymnast on any level scoring: 38.00 AA MUST move up to the next level.
