Like other states, South Dakota incorporat- ed that system into state law. The Coast Guard's boat numbering system includes number placement, size, font and color. Below are guidelines that must be followed. Federal and state law requires that boats licensed in South Dakota must have boat numbers that include the letters "SD" followed by a space, a group of three numbers, a space and two additional letters. The owner must permanently and securely display the numbers on each side of the forward part of the motor- boat, so that the numbers are clearly visible and readable at a distance of 100 feet. The numbers display .ed must be a plain block design, upper case and measure at least three inches in height. Boat owners should ensure the vessel and their placement must read from left to right. Annual or three-year license decals must be displayed adjacent to the numbers on motorized vessels or on each side of the forward part of the vessel on non motorized vessels and must be readily visible. No numbers or letters other than the assigned iden- tification numbers may appear on the forward part of the vessel. An example of proper boat num- ber: (License Decal) SD 123 BC. Information on boat-numbering requirements is available at most Game, Fish and Parks offices, their webs[re at by contacting the Department of Game, Fish and Parks in Pierre. A violation of the boat numbering requirement could result in a citation and fine. Boat licenses and examples of proper boat numbering are avail- able at the county treasurer's office. 3F THE WEEK grader lulia 7.7 on vauh in best, and a new tumble exercise rou- -" SAVE!

The Braves, who obviously had hours of private club training behind them, scored a very strong 134.2 to Ortonville's 98,7. The Braves are the most advanced team the Trojans have seen so far this sea- son. The gymnasts held their own on vault and floor exercise and came away with seasbn highs on both events, while the bars and beam scores took a nose dive and cost the team quite a few points on falls. Two gym- nasts hit their season high at this meet. 4-H fruit sales Julia Nelson scored a 7.7 on vault for a personal best, while Katie Hedge hit 7.0 on floor exercise for a personal best. Lucinda McMahon placed fifth on two events, she hit an 8.2 vault and an 8.05 floor exercise. Her other scores were 6. I bars and 26.95 all around. Vault scores tbr other competitors were Katie Hedge 7.45, Ashley Henrich 7.25 and Kira Sherod 7.0. Floor exercise scores were Martha VanLith 6.75, Julia Nelson 6.3, and Ashley Henrich 5.6. Beam scores were Ashley Henrich 5.6 and Abby Saeger 5.05, while Alyssa Adelman scored a 5.5 on uneven bars. The B squad took a defeat also to the Braves.
