CAC Presidency Changes for 4th Time in Club History

Iron Mike Mazurki, Archie Moore, Lou Thesz, Red Bastien. These are some big shoes to fill.

That’s right, at the 2007 Board of Director’s meeting in Las Vegas, Red Bastien resigned his position as President of Cauliflower Alley Club. During Red’s tenure, we have seen our paid membership grow to new heights and have achieved a level of financial stability not seen before. Red has been a dedicated and popular leader at CAC and will be missed by all of us.

Stepping into the position of President of CAC is Nick Bockwinkel. Nick has been active in CAC for many years and already serves on the CAC Executive Committee. Nick hasn't announced any plans he has for the direction of the Club, but we are certain that, under Nick’s guidance, the Club will continue to grow and prosper.

The recognition of Red’s contributions on Saturday night’s banquet brought Red to tears and there were not many dry eyes in the house. Red is an incredible human being and is as genuine and kind as anybody. Red will, of course, continue his membership in CAC and we hope he will continue to be a fixture at reunions for many years to come.

Welcome, Nick! We look forward to working with you!
