RAC Bulletin 2012-017E – New ARES logos
The attached ARES/SURA logos (see url below), designed by Tyler Tidman VA3DGN are now available for use by all ARES/SURA members and groups. The black and yellow will be used on a “go forward” basis for caps, shirts, crests etc, while the black and white lends itself well when used in print form. Making these logos available in both official languages illustrates the RAC Field Organization’s desire to grow the ARES network in all areas of Canada, and I would like to sincerely thank Tyler for his assistance in bringing these to you.
