The Rockpile – 9-11-2013

Our bowling season kicked off last week, as the Wed. Nite and Thurs. Nite Ladies kicked off their 2013-2014 season. We will get all of the other leagues rolling this week.


 Just a reminder to the Men’s Senior League: We will have our fun day this coming Friday, Sept. 13th starting at 12:30 p.m. The date was changed due to a family funeral. If you’re over 50, and want to have fun with a bunch of great guys, Thursday Senior League is the ticket. If there is an opening we’ll put you on a team or you can get broke in by being a sub.

Our Rustic Lore celebration was a huge success as the town was booming!! The car show brought in over 120 entries and with the gun show, tractor pull, softball tournament, bean bag and kickball tournament plus the two street dances, there was something to do for everybody. Sunday afternoon featured the grand parade lead by grand marshals Ron and Donna Brettingen.

The Kiddie Tractor Pull had approximately 70 kids ranging from three years old and older.

One highlight after the parade was the “Battle of the Businesses” Tractor Pull. We had 14 different local businesses that participated. The winners of the womens’ division was 1st place – Kelsie Hoitomt, Tribune Press Reporter; 2nd place – Katey Vander Wyst, Shotgun Suzie’s; and 3rd place – Rachel Sashner, The Fort. In the mens’ division, Brent Standaert outpulled his cousin Gary Standaert by a mere 10-inch margin to take first place, representing Leaker’s Place, while Gary pulled for Peg’s Pleasant View. Third place was taken by Brandon Barstad, who pulled for Mike’s Auto Body. Thanks to all the pullers and sponsors!!

We also drew for the John Deere Gator after the tractor pull. Roger Bonte, owner of Glenwood City Auto Supply (NAPA) was drawn out of the tumbler for the Grand Prize! Congratulations!!!

Joke of the Week – Italian Altar Boy

“Bless me Father, for I have sinned, I have been with a loose girl,” a boy confesses.

The priest asks, “Is that you, little Joey Pagano?”

“Yes, Father, it is.”

“And who is the girl you were with?”

“I can’t tell you, Father. I don’t want to ruin her reputation.”

“Well, Joey, I’m sure to find out her name sooner or later so you may as well tell me now. Was it Tina Minetti?”

“I cannot say.”

“Was it Teresa Mazzarelli?”

“I’ll never tell.”

“Was it Nina Capelli?”

“I’m sorry, but I cannot name her.”

“Was it Cathy Piriano?”

“My lips are sealed.”

“Was it Rosa DiAngelo, then?”

“Please, Father, I cannot tell you.”

The priest sighs in frustration. “You’re very tight-lipped, and I admire that. But you’ve sinned and have to atone. You cannot be an altar boy now for four months. Now you go and behave yourself.”

Joey walks back to his pew, and his friend Franco slides over and whispers, “What’d you get?”

“Four months vacation and five good leads.”

A belated happy birthday to our son Brent Standaert. His birthday was September 5. He was the same age as Jack Benny claimed to be. If you don’t know what age that was, ask someone who is over 60 years old!!
