Once we had decided upon the FARCE acronym for our club, and since it was formed around April 1st, the group
decided that it would be fitting if we had a logo that included a 'Jester'. Chris, KE6FCJ, said he had a friend
(Eli Hooper, a graphic artist in Grass Valley) that he would contact to see if he would be interested in designing
us a logo which we could use for shirts and ball caps, etc. In early 1998 Eli created the
original as an EPS file with the ability to change the call sign in the bottom ribbon to individualize it for each
of the eight members that we had when the club was formed. In 1998 the eight of us ordered and purchased through Chris from Eli
a Golf type black shirt and a 'Teal' blue ball cap, with our individual call sign logo screen-printed on them.
Bob, WA6FGU, slightly modifed Eli's design in 2000 to clean up some of the edges of the images, to
add the original 1998 copyright
date and to change the bottom banner ribbon to our club call sign. That logo is shown on the left, below.
