*There were two proposals that were introduced which will affect the NorCal bylaws if voted in by the general membership. They must be reviewed, discussed and voted upon by all NorCal members at the June meeting. Please review the enclosed proposals and be prepared to vote on them at the June meeting.
*Another proposal regarding the potential elimination of the second Level 5 & 6 tap swing deductions by judges claiming safety reasons. Jennifer Shipman went to the National Office with this proposal and was told it will not be changed. The height requirements were already lowered with safety in mind and this was not an issue anywhere else in the country. Sanctions will be pulled at any meet caught not enforcing the correct deductions. Jennifer Shipman will discuss this further at the June meeting. Proposal was rescinded.
