LOWRA Logo contest
In the Sunday night ragchew it was suggested and discussed that we should come up with a new club logo to replace the old design (recently cleaned up and updated above) and that a prize could be given for the winning entry.
It perhaps was not said yet how this will be chosen from multiple entries, whether the board will choose, the club members vote on it at an official meeting or if we take votes online here. It has just barely started and we have time to work out the details. Entries will be posted here and on our Facebook group.
