So you want to be a Distinguished Ruffian™? Well here’s how to do it. (PLEASE READ THIS WHOLE PAGE BEFORE SUBMITTING FOR MEMBERSHIP)

Qualifying For Membership
There’s no need to have a member vouch for you but when they are given from another member we do pay attention to them. After submitting for membership you can find our private Facebook group “The Ruffian Quarter” and send a request to join while waiting to be approved. Approvals take at least 8-10 weeks so during that time you can use “the Ruffian Quarter” as a way to get to know some of the current members and stay active with them, we are a pretty close group here and all communicate regularly. (If you are a member of several clubs and you are here for a free patch then this isn’t the club for you and you will not be approved. Participation and communication between members is expected as we are trying to grow a community and not just grow peoples patch collection.)
What will membership bring you ask? An extended family of over 11,000 people, a listing on our member map so you can see who else is near you the official welcome letter and your first patch only available to our members. We also have been building a collection of member only products like, additional patches, stickers, T-shirts, challenge coins, lapel pins and bottle openers! Join up and stay in the loop.
Be a Ruffian but be Distinguished
