However, now and during the season, officials would put colored dots or other stickers on the labels and often wrap scotch tape around them. The dots and stickers partially obscure the weight label and the tape partially peels it off. Any way to require them to put these somewhere other than on the label?

I've been working on getting my state association to make a decision, but they just can't seem to. Depending who you talk to, it is or it isn't. I didn't see too many at the state level (if any) so I'm not sure what the ruling would have been, but my district meet was DQing them, but not every district did. Same thing for sectionals. If it is/is not legal, can someone maybe explain why. Technically, I think it is because it meets the 3/4 size requirement, but with it being silver, I'm not sure on the contrasting color side of things. I don't run across them often, but for whatever reason, I had a school bring nothing but them to a meet last year. Meet managment was just as confused to the ruling as I was, so we made the decision to let them jump since everything else checked out on the pole.
Also, does anyone have a picture of the new Gill replacement labels? I had a coach so me a few that he "supposedly" had just gotten in from Gill, but they looked more like they had been printed on a label maker. They were Yellow with Black lettering.
My area is big on bending/breaking the rules to the point of the sport becoming unsafe so I'm trying to start early with the preventive officialing. We've had a lot of issues this past season, but my state association doesn't feel the need to respond to questions or avoids the question entirely. The event should be fun for the kids as well as safe.
