Rockpile – 2-13-2014

We had a crew of Keglers go down to Marshfield to bowl in the K.C. State Bowling tournament. Some of the fellas bowled incredible!!


Ben Krosnoski rolled his first “300” game along with his best ever series with a 750 series. Jason Maes also put up a perfect “300” game on the same day. Maes came in with a 746 series. Tony Obermueller threw a 745 series and Doug “Wado” Standaert bowled a 279 game and two “700” series!! Great Bowling fellas!!!!

We kicked off our first 9-pin Tap Tournament entries over the weekend. We had a crew from the Twin Cities and Spooner come down Friday night. Dennis Obrten from Woodbury took over first place in singles with a nice 873 series. Dennis teamed up with local bowler Jessica Hager to have the high doubles series, rolling a 1743. We have two full squads coming in this weekend.

Put this Saturday night on your calendar as we are featuring “The Weekenders” Saturday night from 8:30-12:30. The band is in conjunction with the 3rd Annual “Sweetheart Dinner” which is earlier in the evening. Come join the fun!!!

Cold Water

This is for all the germ-conscious folks that worry about using cold water to clean. Thanks to Jerry Sutliff for the following story:

John went to visit his 90-year-old grandfather in a very secluded, rural area of Northern Wisconsin. After spending a great evening chatting the night away, the next morning John’s grandfather prepared a breakfast of bacon, eggs and toast. However, John noticed a film-like substance on his plate, and questioned is grandfather asking, “Are the plates clean?”

“They’re as clean as cold water can get them. Just go ahead and finish your meal, Sonny.”

For lunch the old man made hamburgers. Again John was concerned about the plates, as his plate appeared to have tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried egg and asked, “Are you sure these plates are clean?”

Without looking up the old man said, “I told you before, Sonny, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them. Now don’t you fret, I don’t want to hear another word about it!”

Later that afternoon, John was on his way to a nearby town. As he was leaving, his grandfather’s dog started to growl, and wouldn’t let him pass. John yelled and said, “Grandfather, your dog won’t let me pass.”

Without diverting his attention from the Packer football game he was watching on the TV, the old man shouted: “Coldwater, go lie down, ya hear me!”
