Our Name

SubRon for the Southwestern United States

Our Name

Postby Mkeatingss » Thu Oct 26, 2006 12:14 pm

How do we change our name from "SubRonSW" to "Cactus Navy"? We've got members, and hold regular meetings, just like a real club. Can we have our own name? Please?

Hi Mike,

Are you asking if it's possible to change the name of your Local Chapter? ...or are you looking to create a new club?

Jeff,

Tim asked us to come up with a name for our local chapter. So after the second meeting we had our name, though the change has yet to be indicated here. SubRonSW was a place holder till the official name.

Hi Guys -

I remember seeing posts etc with the Cactus Navy mentioned, but don't recall seeing an official request to change the name. I probably spaced it out :oops: (comes with old age and too many things on the plate.)

I'll run it by the EC. Do you have a logo for here and the SCR?

Tim

Mike,

Cool....if the EC approves, changing the name here in the forum and on the SC main web site would be a straight-forward process.

Tim,

I am not too sure that it is your fault, I am not sure that we submitted an official request, I think that we just posted it in the meeting notes. It would have been an easy miss. As for a logo, we have a few ideas, but lack the ability to get a real nice logo. I can draw mechanical things, but when it comes to cartooning, it is not my strong point.

Adam

PS Tim, I to answer your question about the RX, I have one, but have yet to test it operationally. I have been trying to put out the fires of life.

Hi guys - I "talked" with the SC EC. What would you think of using "The Cactus Navy" as a subtitle, like the SubRon 8 - The Rochester Gang? That way you could still use the Cactus Navy, but we would keep the sub- related theme with the geographical reference like the rest of the local chapters.

:D Sounds good to me Tim and other guys out there! I see what Tim says about still maintaining a geographic title. TIM ... I finally got back in as you can see; thanks to you and Jeff.

Glad you are up and running, Ray. Now, let's find you a new photo for your avatar. With the new larger sizes, some of the old ones ported over from the old board are a little fuzzy.

I guess that is fine, though I thing that it would just be for the website. We here favor using the Cactus Navy. If we were to say the Cactus Navy, SubronSW, A Subcommittee club, might be overkill.

Tim,

I sent you an e-mail with a request, did you receive it?

Adam,

The request that I sent to Tim was the picture you and I talked about, haveing the water transformed into sand and rocks.

A detail-rich image of a sub surfacing through sand and rocks with cacti would look cool large - but the more I think about it, I don't know how to make it so you could tell what it was when it is only 3/4" wide and in black and white in the SCR. Look at the logos of the other SubRons/SubComs in the Sept Fox Schedule (p 5) to see what I mean.

We need to keep in mind that an effective logo for you needs to work large, small, in color or in black & white. All I can say is we need to keep trying to come up with something that will work for you both here and in the SCR with your new name.
