A couple of key dates for the hardcores out there.
Got a beef? Get on your soap box at the Kitchener Rangers' annual general meeting. It goes Aug. 26 at Rockway Mennonite Collegiate.
If you're not a rock-the-boat kinda fan, take it in to find out how much moola the club made in the past year and what lies ahead.
It's also a chance to formally meet new GM Murray Hiebert and coach Troy Smith and his staff.
The action starts at 7 p.m.
And the annual golf tourney is Aug. 27 back at Whistlebear, though this year it's by invite only. The day on the links is traditionally seen as the unofficial first day of training camp.
For me, it's typically the day I try to put new faces to names. This year, that may be a challenge.
