Looking For New Logo - New logo options? Using PCRC and/or Pioneer Chapter Riders Club.
“V” with “TWIN” below as background in our current logo was discussed. I sent a draft out of my
idea to Adam and to Mike Hamann. Adam showed a new logo concept at this meeting and will make
recommended changes and email the officers.
It was decided to change our name from Pioneer
Chapter Excelsior-Henderson® Riders Club to Pioneer
Chapter Riders Club (PCRC).

with a un-registered bike just joined the club.
