## NOTE:
## The attachments to this page (the images/logos) were created by me, Sudomania4 for the US - Georgia
## LoCo Team. I have been wanting to help with a LoCo team in my area for a while, but did not want to start
## my own, because I was not sure about how much time I could dedicate to such a group (I have been busy
## lately). While considering forming a LoCo Team, I thought up and designed this logo. If you hate it, feel
## free to remove it, I was just trying to help this new team and contribute to the spreading of Ubuntu, but if
## you like the logo, feel free to modify or use it. I got the font used in the logo from the DIYMarketing page ## on this wiki: Good luck starting this LoCo Team!

## Also, note that this is an early form of the logo. I could change some letters to Ubuntu-brown, or resize
## the logo, or a number of other things. This was merely meant as a starting logo for a starting team.

## One final note, I added the Georgia Team to this page:

## Nice logo Sudomania4. Thanks for your contribution. I sent a message to your Ubuntu forum account. My email address is in there. Write me back when you have a chance. -John
