Newly appointed Director of Canadian Affairs

The Cauliflower Alley club is proud to announce that Bob Leonard has been elected to the Board of Directors as, Director of Canadian Affairs.

The Cauliflower Alley Club president, Nick Bockwinkel has made many changes to better the club in the long term and feels this will be a great asset to the organization, with the growing Canadian membership.

Chairman Karl Lauer said, "This will give the club great representation in Canada now, we have a large membership there and this will allow them to have a rep at all our Board meetings."

Bob is known through out Canada and is respected for his years of dedication to the wrestling world (not only Canada, but in the United States as well) and friendship with Canada's wrestlers, he has done just about every phase in the wrestling business except have a match (Rumor has it,he might have done that beit was under a mask).

Bob's other claim to fame is he is a Red Bastien look a like, pony tail and all, so if you call him Red or call Red "Bob" neither will be offended, as they have been friends for many years.

Bob has been a dedicated supporter of the Cauliflower Alley Club website and the EAR newsletter. We look forward to the continued working relationship with Bob Leonard and the Canadian members.

Welcome a board Bob!

CAC Returns From Wrestle FanFest

Fellow CAC Board Member Kurt Nielsen and I just returned from San Francisco and the 2007 (and probably only) Wrestle FanFest.

First, on behalf of all of the fans there, I think we owe a thank you to all of the wrestlers who attended and acted with so much class. Some of those who, despite not being paid or not receiving what was promised, acted with class and dignity and still worked to give the fans their money's worth included Harley Race, Nick Bockwinkel, Ted DiBiase, One Man Gang, Slick, Rock Riddle, Chavo Guerrero, Dr. Death Steve Williams, Koko B. Ware and many, many others.

Kurt and I manned the CAC table in the convention area and, despite the general disorganization, many of the fans seemed to be pleased. There were, of course, some who paid a great deal for the event and did not get what they were promised who were understandably upset. For all of those in that situation, we empathize.

On behalf of the CAC, we would also like to extend a very big THANK YOU to Nick Bockwinkel, our Club's President, and member Rock Riddle who did their best to help us sign up new members. Thanks to a combination of Nick's presence and Rock's salesmanship, the Club gained SIXTEEN new members this weekend! We would like to take an opportunity to welcome the following new Club Members:

"Russian Wolf" Alexis Darevko
Maynard Skynard
Badd Blood
Ray Dorst
Adam Crites
Grant Baciocco
Jessica Herrick
Damien Prowse
Marco Padilla
Sir Samurai
Sexy Chino
Jim Fitzpatrick (of Bay Bombers Roller Derby fame)
Scooter Aboot
Markus Mac
and last but certainly not least, Larry Zbyszko

To all of our new members, we offer you a hearty welcome to The Club. We hope that you'll join us at our 2008 Reunion on June 11 in Las Vegas.

Change To The Baloney Blowout

The Board of Directors has made some changes to the Baloney Blowout. This event is always a popular event and, now that it is buffet style, it is very well attended. Over the past several years, the costs have increased substantially and, in 2007, the Club lost $7.50 for each person who attended the Blowout.

Effective with the 2008 Reunion, the cost for the Blowout will be $15 for all those who have a banquet ticket and $20 for those without. We think you'll agree, this is still a very good price for a buffet-style dinner.

In addition, we will be making several announcements in the coming weeks regarding the "theme" of the 2008 Blowout and hope to be announcing some exciting attendees.

Thanks and we look forward to seeing you in 2008!
