The Official new name is Western New York kart Racing Association. I will be working on a new logo and if you have an idea for a logo please submit it ASAP so that we can get banners and printed materials in the works. Thank you for your online vote in this matter. Please keep checking this site often as developments will change quickly since we have a new name.
Just a thought.....I know the majority is all about changing the name because we don't actually race in Batavia any more, but maybe we should consider leaving the logo with the kart and the checkered flag remain....kind of to connect the new with the previously existing..... other people in Karting recognize that logo as being the Batavia group...
Mike your right, it is a big deal. I have been shopping the new name around and the results have been very unsettling. most folks I talk to think that the name is to much of a mouthful and doesn't flow. Say, Batavia kart club, and then say Western New York kart racing association. The word association is the problem. I have been in contact with the officers and we are pretty much on the same page. it needs to be changed to club or league. Nothing is in stone as of yet. On another note I have worked on a few logo ideas with a connection to the past. I have been agonizing over this for weeks. We are trying to sell our group and a solid name is the first step. As far as the current brochures maybe we can insert a small flyer or business card. I'd rather be known as the kart league or kart club instead of the kart assoc.
when ever changing a name on the internet you need to check availability FIRST! Going from association to club or league is not the problem. as I have been monitoring this from the sidelines try www.wnykra.com
After agonizing with the name change and a conference with the club officials we decided that changing out the name Batavia with Western New York is the best course of action. So I will be making an executive decision and the new name will be Western New York Kart Club.(WNYKC) The logo will remain the same except for the aforementioned name change this way we will keep our identity and move forward at the same time. Your patience in this matter is appreciated.
