The man who started it all back in 1967 has become the No 1 Club Member for the new look Toowoomba Mountaineers Basketball Club.

Barry Raftery, who was the inaugural coach of the Mountaineers says he is delighted to see the new direction the Toowoomba Mountaineers are heading and was quick to get behind the club.

“If you’ll pardon the pun, they look to be “climbing to greater heights” in every sense of the words. I am very proud to hold the Number 1 membership of the Mountaineers and my family will always hold this membership number in perpetuity”

Raftery said, “I am going to suggest to the TML Board that they also open up a Perpetual Membership for a set fee so that supporters can hold their Mountaineer membership number.”

Annual membership of the Toowoomba Mountaineers for the 2018 QBL/SBL season is just $100 which is exceptional value. The membership includes a Season ticket to all 9 home games (valued at $90), plus a Mountaineer Hoodie jacket, an inflatable Mountaineer pickaxe and discounted entry to all 2018 Mountaineer functions.
