This is a GREAT slogan! It's inclusive, it's motivating, it's for the person, like me that needs a helping hand. This clearly says "Hey, we've been there- We'll help you get there too!" That is even better than the one that I picked, which is the one we are using now. And why not have the word outdoor or adventure in the motto? It would be redundant if it were being used in a sentence, but they aren't. It's a motto that reminds someone that being outdoor or on an adventure is what we're all about.

Just my "never-to-be-humble" thoughts outloud!

Still seems a little "wordy" to me - maybe if it is condensed, such as:

"Adventure is waiting - find it at OAUSA"

A motto need to be quick on the tongue and quick on the page to be effectively remembered, IMO...

Best so far, I think - maybe a minor change - "Adventure - Starts Here !!!"

I'm new here so please excuse my ignorance which I hope, on this forum, is only temporary :lol:

I can't tell from this thread whatever happened to the slogan (motto). I assume the winner was "Everyone deserves to be outdoors". If that's the case well then, nevermind!

Let's see how old you are (if you know why I included this pic)

Seems to me the theme or focus of this place is: Off-Road Adventures & Ham Radio and those words or something similar work best to communicate what this forum/group is all about.

And a logo? Simple. Put a cute pig in a jeep-like 4WD vehicle, add an antenna or some other grapic to represent the amateur radio and you've got yourself a logo.

Here's some food for thought:

And if all of this is already done then my points are "MOO" :mrgreen:

Maybe I'm posting "at the end of a canyon". It looks like the majority of the most recent posts in these OAUSA Suggestions forums were in 2008.


Hello? Is there anyone in there? Just nod if you can hear me...
