RangersInc Based in Northeast Ohio, Rangers, Inc. was founded in 1988 by five charter members and was incorporated in 1989. It is a Leather / Levi / Uniform Club and is a 501(c)7 non-profit organization.
(13)

In the fall of 1988, five friends joined together to form a club of people called Rangers, inc., whose interest was in Leather, Levi's and Uniforms. The goals of the charter members were as follows: to promote the leather/uniform spirit, to support the needs of the larger community and the charitable organizations that help fulfill those needs, and to strengthen the leather/uniform community of Northeast Ohio. The Rangers' logo (club patch) has five stars, representing the five founding members. The colors are registered with the State of Ohio as a Service Mark. The club is chartered with the State of Ohio as a tax exempt social club (501 C 7). Since 1989 the Rangers have had a strong commitment to the fight against AIDS. Through many bar events in Cleveland and Akron, the club has raised and donated around $20,000 to area charities. Whenever the club does an out-of-town bar event, they donate the proceeds to the local charities. The Rangers have received awards in both Akron and Cleveland for their charity work. As part of the uniform scene, the Rangers were affiliated with the A.U.A. This affiliation remained until the A.U.A. became defunct. The Rangers held the Annual A.U.A. Review in October of 1996. This review brought in people from all over the US. Also in attendance were people from Germany, England, and the Netherlands. Since the A.U.A. is no longer active, the Rangers have replaced their old "Park Ranger" uniforms with new ones reflecting the leather aspect of the club. The Rangers have participated in and held runs as part of the M.A.C.C. (Mid-American Conference of Clubs). In 1992 and 1993 the Rangers hosted runs in Cleveland. Many of the Rangers have traveled to other cities for their club's runs. Some of the runs that the Rangers support are as follows: The Centurians of Columbus, Panthers of Atlanta, Gateway MC of St. Louis, Conductors of Nashville, and Pittsburgh MC of Pittsburgh. Many individual Rangers have been attending runs across the country. Club participation awards have been bestowed upon the Rangers by some of the aforementioned clubs. The Rangers have established excellent working relations with the clubs of Northeast Ohio., All the clubs have worked to coordinate their event calendars. The purpose of this is to further support each other by being able to attend each other's events. Along with the other local clubs, the Rangers have hosted an All-Club Bar Night, which raised over $1,000 to support the gay community centers of Akron and Cleveland. The members of the Rangers remain committed to their stated goals, as reflected in their current events calendar.

The Rangers have been closely monitoring the Covid-19 pandemic and remind you keep yourself, your family, your friends and neighbors safe.

Please do your part to check up on family, friends and neighbors. We are all in this together. We need to not only lookout for ourselves, but we need to lookout for each other. Make phone calls just to say hello and see how friends and loved ones are doing.

For everyone’s safety we had already postponed our 31st Anniversary party even before the bars were asked to close.

The Rangers can only hope that our Country has recovered in time for our next event “FETISH, FANTASY & ROLL-PLAY NIGHT” on Sunday, June 14th.

Please visit our http://www.Rangersinc.org website and click on NEXT EVENT to see the current status and changes to our events.

The Governor of Ohio has announced that the Ohio Department of Health has issued a “Stay at Home” order. The Rangers are doing what we can to keep everyone safe. So, in consideration of this directive, the April 2020 monthly meeting of the Rangers is going to be held via conference call so we can all keep proper social distancing and abide by the directive. Keeping optimistic, we think that this will be a great opportunity for members of the Rangers who do not live near enough to physically be at our monthly meetings to participate in possibly their first meeting!

Please make wise choices and wise decisions.
And most important of all… Stay healthy and stay safe.

The Rangers would like to thank everyone for their support…
past… present… and future!

Today at the Rangers cocktail party in New Orleans, Ranger Scott and I dressed like characters from The Dukes of Hazzard.

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Rangers 30th anniversary party last night at the Leather Stallion.

It was our chance to give back to the community.

We gave away almost 90 gifts including claw bags, claw t-shirts, claw water bottles, Rangers t-shirts, Rangers coffee mugs, bar tabs from the Leather Stallion, gift cards from Giant Eagle, Subway, Starbucks, Build-A-Bear, and Kilted Brothers.

I think almost everyone who stayed until midnight won something.

As the Rangers treasurer, I stopped by Huntington bank today to make the deposit from the Rangers fundraiser last weekend. The woman at the bank knows me very well and was happy for the Rangers with the amount of money we raised.

I asked her if I could have a handful of writing pens. I told her that I love the way they write so smoothly, and at our monthly meetings everyone is always needing pens.

I asked if I could have 10 or 12 writing pens. This is what she gave me.

GOTTA LOVE HUNTINGTON BANK!!!
