CAC Announces 2008 Reunion Information

After reviewing several packages presented by the Riviera Hotel, we have chosen June 9, 10 and 11 as the dates for our annual Reunion. We believe that the package presented for these dates offers the most value and appears to be the most financially attractive for our members. With room rates of $89 per night, a guarantee that even those staying on their Players' Club cards will be credited to the CAC and several extras thrown in, these dates will offer an opportunity for substantial hotel savings.

In addition, because of the change of days, we will have much more floor space for the various activities surrounding the event. While we will no longer be hosting in-ring wrestling training seminars, we intend to offer two classrooms featuring all-day wrestling seminars by some of this sport's most legendary individuals. Some of the classes we hope to offer include "Booking Basics," "The Art of the Heel Promo," "Getting Booked in Japan," "How to do an Interview," "Getting the Right People to See You" as well as classes on how to make working the independent circuit as profitable as possible.

The closing song by Pat Patterson and Pepper Martin, "Our Way" was so well received that our new President has added dancing and karaoke AFTER the Baloney Blowout on Tuesday night, complete with music. President Bockwinkel correctly noted the amount of talent we have in the CAC and we want to give them a chance to showcase it.

Please start reserving your dates now to be at this great event! The Riviera will accept reservations at these rates from November 1st, 2007 through May 8th 2008. Be sure to book your rooms early to lock in these great rates! There will be more surprises added on a regular bases, so be sure to check the CAC web site regularly as we lead up to the Reunion.

RIP - Cocoa Samoa & Sonny Myers

Right around the time of the reunion, Onosa'i Ulualoaiga Emelio, professionally known as Cocoa Samoa, died of unspecified causes. He was 62 years old. Cocoa Samoa wrestled in many of the key territories: Florida, Memphis, Southwest, Mid-South and the Pacific Northwest, to name just a few. He was a main event star in Portland for a few years, and headlined as Sabu the Wildman in Memphis against Jerry Lawler and Terry Taylor.

An icon of the Central States region, Sonny Myers died this past Saturday at age 83. Working under Gust Karras, Myers was the backbone of the region until Harley Race established himself in the late 1960s. More importantly, he held a version of the world heavyweight title just prior to the formation of the NWA in 1948.

We at the Cauliflower Alley Club offer our deepest condolences to the families of these two gentlemen. They will be missed.

Breaking News Regarding 2008 CAC Reunion

Please hold off on booking your trips for the 2008 Reunion. The Riviera is in the process of putting together a fantastic package for CAC members in an attempt to move the reunion to different dates than previously announced.

In reviewing preliminary information for pricing and packages, we believe that many CAC members will be able to save over $100 on room rates alone due to this change. As soon as we have contracts signed, we will post revised dates and information for the change.

Thanks for your patience while we work to put together an exciting Reunion for 2008!
