We would like to spend up to $150 of Hive76 General Funds to buy gift cards for prizes in a logo redesign contest. The contest would be open to anyone, and anyone could submit designs and ideas for a new Hive76 logo. At the end of the contest, the members would vote on the best 2 logos. The best would get $100 gift card to sparkfun or thinkgeek. The runner up would get $50 to sparkfun or thinkgeek.

Membership dues are due by the 5th of each month for all members. Core Members and Basic Members that have not paid by the 10th of the month will automatically get charged an extra $5 late fee.
