Yeah, we talked about including the UP in the logo (isn't there a new state law that all official state symbols have to include it?). In the end, we voted and it seems that it made the patch too busy, so aesthetics won out. You can find the discussion in the Michigan regional section.
I've noticed that the Midwest group includes the UP in their list of places they cover, but of course any Upers who aren't offended by the logo would be welcome in the MI group too.
Are you a Uper? I thought you were a troll too.
