CONDORSTOWN, Calif. – The Bakersfield Condors will celebrate their 15th season of hockey in Condorstown in 2012-13 and are proud to unveil a special 15th anniversary logo for the season.
The logo, designed by Condors Director of Marketing and Creative Services Ryan Hanson, features the easilyrecognizable Condors bird head situated on top of the number 15. Underneath is a ribbon with the dates 1998, the team’s first season, and 2013, the team’s 15th season. Also on the ribbon is the slogan “Years of Family Fun,” which speaks to the organization’s commitment to excellence in the community and providing affordable family entertainment in Bakersfield.
“We’re really excited for the 15th season of hockey in Condorstown,” said Condors Team President Matthew Riley. “This new logo will be used as a shoulder patch on our new alternate jersey which will be unveiled later in the summer, on marketing materials, and featured on team merchandise.”
