The board passed a motion to increase the entry fees for the WFSC Dance Competition from $40 to $46 for regular events, and from $10 to $12 for the Wheel of Fortune event. The board agreed by consensus to keep the Earl Porter event but make new plans for the award due to the expense of an individual trophy every year. An existing trophy will be used this year while future arrangements are finalized. There is no change in fees for the freeskating competition which is scheduled for May 31, 2003.
