g. A proposal was made to reduce the amount of ribbons that are provided
by age group. Thought was to not provide 7place or greater ribbons to
11-18 year old swimmers, or possibly to no 7th place ribbons at all. Here
is the estimated cost savings to this proposal:
1) No 7 place or greater
(1) 15-18 only - $1480.00
(2) 13-18 only - $1645.00
(3) 11-18 only - $1985.00
(4) All - $2340.00
