At the Edelweiss Sports Bar

Our first dinner of our 72nd season

Welcome back!!!

Special guest: Stu Julius

  • GM of the KW Titans (NBL Canada's newest franchise - our region's professional basketball team) 
  • Long-time Kitchener resident with decades of basketball experience
  • Former head coach of the Wilfrid Laurier women's basketball team
  • Former athletic director and coach at Lakehead University
  • Former member of the coaching staff of the Mississauga Power and, last year, assistant coach of the London Lightning of the NBL Canada

Dinner attendees learned about the new KW Titans organization and plans, as far as they're settled so far, for the coming season. Games at the Kitchener Auditorium - probably Saturday nights with another on a weekday evening. Ticket rates for adults and students. Lots of community involvement. Gearing up for a real family-orientated season of entertainment and fun. 50/50 draw!  Hoping for lots of support!
