The Rockpile – 2-5-2014

We have three more “700’s” to put up on the tote board. Dave Brandt rolled a 747 series on the Saturday Nite Mixed league Saturday.

 

 Ben Krosnoski bowled a 764 on the Hometown league and Brian Casey put up a 749 on the Town and Country league. Krosnoski spared in the first frame of his second game and then proceeded to strike out the next eleven frames to score an amazing 290 game while Brian Casey bowled a 254 game to start the first game of his series and then had a perfect eleven in a row in game two. On his final delivery Casey rolled what looked like a perfect ball, but only carried 9 pins to bowl an outstanding 299 game. On his final game, Brian slowed down a tad to roll a 193 for a 749 series. Great bowling fellas!!

Some of our lady keglers also bowled some nice series: Peg Obermueller 544, Audrey Maes 505, Cindy Rassbach 592, Kathy Alleman 526, Mary Anderson 505, Carrie Cassellius 557, Peg Heutmaker 550, Viv Lindstrom 531, and Lori Klinger 544. Good series, ladies!!!

We’ll get our 9-Pin Tournament underway this weekend. We have a group coming in this Friday evening from the Twin Cities and Spooner, Wis. There still are some open dates, so if your planning to participate, call or stop in.

The Rest of the Story

Early aircrafts’ throttles had a ball on the end of it, in order to go full throttle the pilot had to push the throttle all the way forward into the wall of the instrument panel. Hence the “balls to the walls” for going fast!! And now you know, the rest of the story.

Preacher

A Baptist preacher was seated next to a cowboy on a flight to Texas. After the plane took off, the cowboy asked for a whiskey and soda which was placed before him.

The flight attendant then asked the preacher if he would like a drink. Appalled, the preacher replied, “I’d rather be tied up and assaulted by women of ill-repute than let liquor touch my lips.”

The cowboy handed his drink back to the attendant and said, “Me too, I didn’t know that we had a choice.”
