Point of clarification. I certainly agree with the above statement and did 
not intened to imply that full artwork be produced. As has been suggested, a 
good B/W drawing of the proposed logo is good enough. Furthermore, I'd like 
to add one requirement to those suggested by Mary; since this is an 
electronic, i.e. computer/internet mailing list and social club *(at least 
during conferences)  soley dedicated to dinosaur science, I'd like to see 
that fact integrated in the logo. Don't ask me how as I'm not an artist! I 
just feel it would be appropos.

Excellent idea! Pins and patches sound good too!
