So what is Arc80an anyhow and where on Lake?
It's across from That's Entertainment, and beside the Money Mart if I understand the directions properly... I keep planning to stop in, but... Life gets in the way... lol...

Amigas coat me a boatload. They were a really cool computer. The predecessor to our windows desktop today in an era where a PC simply could not do that.

Not sure why they never caught on!?

Kitchener I haven't been to...yet...but I might change that on opening weekend.
Kitchener is my favorite rink in the league that I've been to. Great combination of a historic building with modern upgrades. Steepest incline for seating in the league by far. You really feel the community pride and history in that arena. They seem to do everything the right way. I take the wife every year to the Rangers/Dogs only appearance in Kitchener, and hit up the St.Jacobs market the next day.

You're right they didn't allow alcohol in the seating area. From what I understand it was to keep the family atmosphere in the seating bowl. If you wanted to drink you had to go to the concourse to do so. I think as of two years ago it's been changed and you can drink in the seating area.

The owner would have to be nuts to do that. Maybe make a family zone but no beer in the stands is very unCanadian and has to hurt the bottom line.

The Rangers are owned by the season ticket holders. There is a board of governors in place to make decisions, but there isn't one person that makes any calls on their own. Basically, the community owns the Rangers, hence the community atmoshere and family orientation that goes with the organization.

I wish I knew even half of what you have already forgotten! I still think a community board would have an interest in making the money from the beer sales and in allowing fans to have a brew in the stands. It sounds like a nobel idea to start with but I bet it hurt there cash flow and they got complaints from fans.
