2010 Reunion Memories & Snapshots: Darla Staggs Taylor
I first would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who made the 45th Sapphire CAC Reunion a huge success.Â I donâ??t want to mention names, because as soon as I do, I will forget someone.Â Although this is a reunion for the wrestlers to get together with their friends, I am grateful that you have allowed the fans to be a part of this event.
The highlight for me this year was the banquet.Â I have to admit, I thought it would be long and drawn out, but Terry Funk and J J Dillon were the best emceeâ??s that I have heard.Â They made the evening fun!Â The speeches were tremendous by all of the recipients and very emotional.Â It is really touching to see my heroes stand on that stage and talk about their days in the business and they have tears in their eyes.Â It is obvious how much they loved what they did, just as their fans loved them.
I was thrilled to be a part of honoring Vince Fahey with the Red Bastien Friendship Award.Â Vince has been a great friend from the first moment I met him.Â He does a remarkable job with the Kayfabe Memories site.Â He even likes my snorting laugh!
Most of all, it was a special few days for me to be able to spend quality time with my â??wrestlingâ? family, Mick Karch, Dale Spear, Shelley and Chad Bonin, Morgan Dollar, Wes Daniel, Joyce Paustian, Vince Fahey, and Jeff Sharkey.Â They are some of the BEST friends a person could ask for.Â
And a special Thank You to my new friend, Raven, for sitting at our table both nights and entertaining us!Â What a great sense of humor he has.
Iâ??m already counting the days till CAC 2011.
