The Rockpile – 10-16-2013

We’ll look at a few more league leaders this week.

On the Wed. Noon league, the M&M squad is out in front of my Leaker’s team by a 6 point margin. On the Wed. Nite Ladies league another team sponsored by M&M Bar is the top team so far, leading the Family ChiroCare by a five-point margin. That Ladies league have two gals fighting for the top average spot with Mary Anderson and Cindy Rassbach all knotted up with 170 averages.

The largest ladies league, Thursday Nite Ladies, the “Amazing Portraits By Angie” team is ahead of 2nd place Ruth’s Catering by a 1.5 point difference.

We had some pretty crafty splits picked up this past week. Chuckie DeSmith picked up the very tough 6-7-10. DeSmith also converted the 4-9 in the same game.

Bill Ross mastered the 5-6-10 split, while Shari Wink made the 3-6-7-10 split. Jon Standaert also converted the 4-9.
