A New Board for the Tacoma Rangers Moving into the 2021 Season!

After a difficult year cut short by the COVID-19 Pandemic, The Rangers are making plans for the 2021 season by holding our 2021 Annual General Meeting. Items of discussion were plans for hosting games and tournaments (once safe to do so) in the summer of 2021 and plans for USGAA finals in Boston. Also on the docket was electing new board positions! Congratulations to Molly Hughes who takes over as Chairman from Cory Haven! Thank you to Cory for all of your hard work over the last few years as our fearless leader! Cory will remain on the board as registrar. Next up is Elizabeth Mandel taking the reigns as Public Relations Officer from Brett Burden who fills in a vacant spot as Special Projects / Member at Large. Ellis Jones will be taking over the vacant Fundraiser and Special Events Organizer position.

We look forward to playing and hosting matches as the global pandemic begins to lessen. Keep an eye on our website, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for information on any potential matches, tournaments or practices.

Please visit our Tacoma Rangers Board page to get in contact with individual members of our board, or the Contact Us page for general information.

Teaching classes at PLU!

In addition to playing a great hurling exhibition match during PLU’s homecoming football game halftime, a handful of Rangers had the privilege of teaching a “world games and sports” class during the week! We had a great time teaching an awesome group of students about the sports we love, hopefully we will see a few of them out on the field! Special thanks to Lynn Tucker from PLU for helping to organize the event! Go Lutes!
