Subject Re: Derby Logo, Take Two
Date Wed, 11 May 2005 20:27:15 GMT
I removed the link to the old logo contest page, suspecting it could 
cause confusion.  It is still out there if anyone wants to look at it 
for reference:


Once it has been updated with the new "rules of engagement", I'll update 
the web site and put a visible link back on the navigation menu.
