it was agreed that there was enough interest in forming a new club. The new club was
formed and would be called the Bramalea Glasgow Rangers supporters club with 19 charter
The next challenge for the newly formed club was to select and vote on a new club
executive and a committee. The first executive was elected by the members:
President:................. Jim Logue.
Vice President......... John James.
Secretary:................. Alec Morrison.
Committe .................. ?

hold a weekly social gathering for the new members.
After some searching the Ebenezer Hall on Gore Road was chosen as temporary location
for the Saturday social get together, a letter was sent out by the club's Secretary (Alec
Morrison) informing the new membership that the first official meeting would be held on
Saturday April 6th and thanking the members for making the club's first dance a success
which was held on March 22nd.
The meeting was brought to order by its new President John Logue
and it's committee .

was going to have to be found, so a second location was found at the Masonic Hall in
Brampton ( Queen street and #10) where members could meet on Saturday's, the first
meeting at the new location was held on September 21st 1985, as the word got out about
the new Rangers club the membership grew to 65 + 3 life members by December.

designs were submitted, the membership's final choice was the one that was designed by

into a wall crest which is now on display at

the Drambuie ran out at
the curling club.

Brampton where the members could meet for televised games, dominoes and social events.
The club had its first bar with a fridge that did not have to be dismantled each time the club
Two members became the regular barmen Jack Clinton and Bobby Gemmell.
Jack was well know for giving you his opinion (can't print them) to matters that he did not
agree with I think he was doing just that in one
of the images.
Bobby Gemmell for his sense of humour and jokes.
Both are now sadly missed by the membership.
As the membership continued to grow it was becoming more aware that the club needed
a larger unit for the members.
The executive did not have to look too far two units next door were available so a lease was
signed at 185 Advance Boulevard. unit #2
