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

Grant Baciocco
Jessica Herrick
Damien Prowse
Marco Padilla

Jim Fitzpatrick (of Bay Bombers Roller Derby fame)

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.
