(IASF-CNR, Sezione di Bologna) report: 

We have observed the error box of GRB030324 (GCN 1954, HETE trigger 2641)
in the nights of March 24 and 25 with the 152 cm Loiano telescope of 
Bologna University.
We have obtained the following two images: 

   mid exp.      filter     exposure time     approx.
     UT                       (seconds)    limiting mag
Mar 24.9837        R            1800           21.9
Mar 25.9852        R            1800           21.4
We find no OT candidate in our first frame with respect to DSSII. 
By the comparison of the two frames we do not detect any object fading 
more than the internal error of the measurements.
