    Timbit hockey during intermission is a major event for any minor hockey player. My last timbit enjoyed meeting Tex, high five alley and playing a little game in 2018 at the Aud! - Shelley Ogilvie

  • Pepi's Pizza

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    I remember going to the Aud as a child with my dad to watch the Rangers game, and us having a pizza beforehand. In the first period of the game, they gave away a free Pepi's Pizza to one random seat, and it just happened to be us. I love Pepi's Pizza but I was so full from the other pizza I had eaten that we gave it away to people in our section - Michael Puopolo

    Watching hockey has always been a big deal to me so in February 2018 my husband and I took our daughter to her first live Ranger game! She was actually engaged in the entire game and had a blast! The best part is TECHNICALLY this was my son's first game too since I was 7 months pregnant. It was an amazing family outing and one we can't afford to do too often. Every time I look at this picture hanging on the wall I smile and feel the happy energy off our extremely happy little girl! - Alisha Cormier

  • Decades of special memories

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    There are so many memories of the Aud!!! Saturday morning ice skating as a child. Friday night Rangers games for sure! And then waiting with impatience for hockey to be over and roller skating to start! The COE was a MUST annual event, as was the battle of the marching school bands and football at Centennial stadium. Every decade of my life has special memories of the AUD! We have been so lucky to have such a first-class facility here forever!!!! - Sandra Ellis

    The Aud holds a special place in our hearts. It is where we have gathered for numerous concerts, hockey games - The Rangers and my son House league team, food and drink shows, and so much more. However on Feb 16, 2020 my daughters team won the Provincial Championship (Cheer Sport Sharks - Blacktips!) for the 2nd year in a row and this memory stands out the most. This picture and this moment in time, seems like a lifetime ago. We were with our Cheer Family, gathering and cheering on our children. Being a part of a community like this means so much and having a win in our home community was even better! – Shannon Thomson

  • AAA Hockey 1974

    This is the ticket photo for the Kitchener Civilian Juvenile AAA hockey team, taken at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium in January of 1974. We were playing an International hockey game against Rauma of Finland, that we lost 4 - 1. The photo reminds me of the thrill of playing at the auditorium in front of a few thousand people and of the penalty shot/opportunity I had and did not score on. - Michael Redfearn

    My family has been connected to this grand old building for a very long time. My grandfather use to drive the Zamboni in the 60’s, my grandmother worked at the snack bar and both my father and uncle were stick boys to some of the Ranger greats like Big Bird Larry Robinson and Billy Bishop. My now 7 year old son knows exactly where to find the picture of his Papa on the wall with all the old teams.

    And who could forget the first taste of Pepis Pizza you had as a kid in the 90’s from the old stalls in the now lower bowl. - Mike Kovarik
