The Ashgrove Rangers is built on the efforts of tireless volunteers, many of whom work long hours and behind the scenes to make sure the club runs like clockwork. We have a lot going on with training, events, competition, coordination and external partnerships and we are appreciative of everyone’s dedication and passion.
Life memberships are awarded to members who display meritorious service to the club for 10 years or more. Once nominated, they must be voted in by more than 2/3 majority at the AGM.
Since 1971 the club has had 16 Life Members. Their individual contributions can be tied to club milestones and they have collectively provided the backbone of contribution over the many years.
