A "Hunk" Of A CAC Life Member

CAC member and supporter, Richie Rotten, submitted the following news bit:

Glenn Ulrich, the youngest life member in CAC history, was selected "Hunk of the Day" for June 25 at (scroll about half way down the page). Glenn has been having a great month of June, having attended the CAC Reunion, competed in the battle royal at the Reunion, graduated high school, won his BWO match against Preacher and now being named "Hunk of the Day."

Congratulations, Glenn! Keep up the good work!

Waterloo, IA Hall of Fame In Need of Help

I spoke to BJ Race this morning. As I understand it, the Iowa Hall of Fame DID NOT have flood insurance. This means that this already near-catastrophic damage will be even harder for them to work their way out of.

She and Harley's World League Wrestling are, of course, doing a benefit show for the Waterloo Hall this weekend. In addition, she is planning on holding a silent auction during the weekend. She has asked for donations of memorabilia to be auctioned off at the Induction Weekend and has already gotten commitments from Roddy Piper, Bret Hart and Wendy Weaver to bring items to be added to the silent auction.

I will be sending some of my memorabilia that I hope will help the Hall and am hoping that some other folks can do the same. If you have items to donate to the silent auction, please get in touch with me and I will figure out a way to place you in touch with the Race's to schedule delivery.

Time is short as they are leaving next Wednesday, so we have to get it to them quickly. BJ has also told me that any items that might not sell at the Iowa Hall would then be donated to the Cauliflower Alley Club to be auctioned for their Benevolent Fund next year.

Any questions, e-mail me at

Thanks for your support!

Another Year's Reunion Finished

Well, some of us have already returned home from this year's Cauliflower Alley Club Reunion, others are still traveling and some are still in Las Vegas enjoying the sights, sounds and opportunities to lose money (right, Morgan?). I think that all of us, though, will agree that this year's Reunion was one of our most successful ever.

There were certainly some roadblocks on the way to success.... the memorabilia fair room wasn't open, let alone ready, when we arrived Monday morning to begin our set-up, we had the usual challenges with audio at an event of this type and there was the case of those missing keys (right, Nick?); however, despite any roadblocks, the successes were much greater.

I believe that all of the vendors set up for the memorabilia fair had very successful weeks despite the concerns over the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday dates, the Baloney Blowout was fun and festive and the Reunion Banquet itself was tremendous. I don't believe that there was a dry eye in the house as we closed the banquet with Pat Patterson leading us in singing "My Way."

Over the coming days, I will be working on a full report of the events. In the meantime, our friends over at SLAM! Wrestling already have their reviews and photo albums posted.

To everybody who contributed to this Reunion, thank you. I hate to try to do this because you always forget somebody, but thanks particularly go to Dave Millican, Rico Mann, Reggie Parks, Ted Gordienko and Vince Fahey for donating items for our auctions and raffles this week; to BJ Race, Melissa Anderson and Al Friend for helping us earn as much money as possible for the items that were donated; to Mike Lano, Kurt Brown and Bob Barnett for their contributions to the Baloney Blowout; and to JJ Dillon, Morgan Dollar, Kurt Nielsen and Scott Hosey for helping to make the banquet itself so successful.
