QT City of Ipswich Sports Awards - Club of the Year
A busy year for the Rangers, that saw a 22% increase in player numbers, was capped off by the club's first grade team winning 2012 Brisbane Sub districts Barber Cup. This was in addition to successful seasons from their B-Grade Pegg Cup side and Under 10, Under 13, Under 15 and Under 16 teams all making finals of their respective competitions.
Off the field the club has also been active in the community, raising over $10,000 for charities and implementing a "Boots Buy Back" scheme enabling members to purchase outgrown boots for just $100 a pair. The club has also recently embarked on a whole of club strategic planning process.
One of the highlights of the year was the inaugural Rangers Festival of Rugby involving eight local schools culminating in a full day seven-a-side tournament with approximately 250 junior players. President Kim Rowcliffe attributes the successful season to the good mix of new and old blood currently serving on the committee.
