    Our first rock concert with our kids in March 2016. We arrived early and watched the opening acts, including Carly Rae Jepsen. Then the main event started and the Aud went crazy while Hedley played! It was a packed house and really fun for everyone! - GARY BARFOOT

    One of the most exciting events for me was the Circus Spectacular in June 2017. As a new team member at The Aud, it was thrilling to see the set up and strict safety protocols for this type of event. Being able to go home and share the excitement with my children was a real treat. The wildest act was the deadly, circular motorcycle cage! Watching the daredevils set it up and the smell of the fuel from their bikes will be a memory I keep forever! - Nikki Tremblay

    Hat was signed by all the Kitchener Rangers players that won the 2003 Memorial Cup the last year they won and my Memorial Jersey that I got 10 years ago when I was 50yrs old and so in that time period I got it Autograph front and back and the hat is Autograph just about every open gap on it.


    Then in the 2008 Memorial Cup final that year at the Kitchener Auditorium, I won a Rookie Team Autographs Jersey from a Big Brother/Big Sister draw. - Allan Thompson

    It was the skate with the Rangers & it was my daughters 1st time on the ice with them. She was ecstatic & when I asked for a photo, as many Rangers that could fit, all clamoured in to be a part of the moment. Unforgettable to my daughter Ava & she felt so important.. - Joanne Fraczkowski
