The following citation appears on the Rowing ACT website Life Members page and was extracted on 30th December 2022.
Roger Grylls was elected to Life membership at the 47th Annual General Meeting on 31 August 2011 in recognition of his long and distinguished service as a boat race official. He joined the Union of Boat Race Officials in 1971 shortly after leaving school and has served continuously ever since.
Roger is also well known for community work in Canberra across a range of interests including soccer at the club, Territory and National level, the Red Cross and the ACT Olympic Council.
On several occasions the Association called upon Roger’s assistance where specialised advice on financial and accounting matters was required. He played a significant part in the Association’s adoption of software necessary to overcome long standing issues with the Association’s accounts.
