    Rally Logo

    I'm really looking forward to this rally, and I hesitate to sound negative, but...

    What's with this year's logo? I always look forward to the Rally logos, because they are always so well done (Spokane w/Lewis & Clark remains my fave). I like the idea of a humorous Bigfoot, but, honestly, this looks SO amateur. Maybe it's just me? Looks like the work of a fifth grader!

    In agreement...

    IMO... it does look like a "kids club" cereal box promo; not something I want on my t-shirt or anything else.

    We have a few logo's to be proud of and admire later in life with fondness.... this probably wont be one of them!

    But it wont change my excitement for the general location. Enough said on my part.

    Every region has a flavor of its own. This logo speaks of "fun" to me. I'm looking forward to adding this patch to Barley's vest.

    Although I have to admit when I first saw it, I thought Bigfoot needed more protective gear!

    The rally patch is somewhat misleading. There are no mountains in Salem Ore. There are mountains within thirty minutes. I like the patch but do not want people to be mislead. Great venue. I used to show and sell Llamas at the rally site every Fourth of July at the "Firecracker Llama Show and Sale".

    One hour west is the most beautiful coast ride in the US. Bar non. Cannon Beach etc. Your going to love it. I lived in the Pacific NW for thirty five years.

    Salem will be somewhat warmer than Redmond in the evening and a bit cooler in the day.

    I buy souvenir rally shirts when they have a logo that make for a good reminder of the rally. I know I'll enjoy Oregon, but I doubt that I'll be buying and wearing a Salem Rally shirt home.

    I've got no problem with the logo for a patch or shirt. Looks like someone had fun making it. Some folks get too worked up over nothin.

    I dunno I've just seen A LOT of griping about nothing since I've registered on the MOA forums. The patch is ugly, the rally is on the wrong side of the states, the forum is messed up(I've seen this one a lot).

    Good lord if ya don't like something change it. If the patch is ugly to you hire someone to make a new one or do one up yourself. If ya don't like the way the forum is being ran volunteer to be part of the site admin team and make it better.
