If we purchase 150 bottles it is a better price and would carry us through till next year (next years budget for swag was $600) so we are still under budget.  Agreement to adjust this years swag budget to $452.00 to cover the cost of the water bottles.

Elite Pro Am swim meet:  in Texas Dec. 13-16. Discussion on if booster is able to help.  Needs more discussion since this would only benefit 3-4 athletes.  We had previously discussed that we would like to help out where needed but on items and activities that benefit the majority of athletes.
