we found some really cheap blank picture keychains and are wondering what kind of issues we would create with the following idea.

we have a nice program on our computer where we can print multi images
on a page of any size and were thinking of creating a print for the front of the keychain to show our caching name and our caching design and then on the back side we had thought of placing the MNGCA logo and note directing others to the website to find more information about minnesota geocaching. we are then going to use these keychains as our signature item. out here in the rural sw part of the state it will get the word out about the organization. we are even slowly starting up a geocaching group under yahoo groups for swmn geocachers.

Sounds like a great idea. All members are free to use our logo. When you look under your profile on the main mngca.org you will see "members only" section (http://mngca.org/members-only). On there are the current official logos for the MnGCA that you may download and use.

I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Cheers!

Just to clarify, I would suggest that members wishing to use the logo review the bylaws, article VII. The logo is available for "any personal and non-commercial purpose".

I would interpret m&tcacheseekers idea to fall easily within that realm, but just want to clarify that the use of the logo isn't open ended for any purpose.
