Your Committee

The AGDRC committee is dedicated and hardworking. Our aim is to run the Club efficiently and effectively to serve the members - and have some fun along the way. 

Get in touch if you have questions about any aspect of the Club, including new ideas. You will see the committee members at most competitions and clinics. Our names and photos below will help you recognise us - feel free to have a chat.
