Rockpile – 3-5-2014

We had more 9-pin participants this weekend and have new leaders again in the tournament.

 In singles, Bob Schug took over the top score with a dandy 918 series with handicap. Tim Pederson of New Richmond bowled a 913 series to get on the “900” tote board. (All 900 plus series have a shootout at the end of the year to determine the singles champion). Doubles leaders also changed hands as Tim Pederson and Chad Vang put together a 1795 series.

Twenty of us “Senior Bowlers” went to Stevens Point this past weekend to bowl in the States Senior Bowling Tournament. There were some great scores bowled at the annual outing. One of our teams took over second place in the team event. “Wado’s Winners” put together a 2953 series to put them in second place. The top team rolled a 300. Wado’s Winners were made up of Tom Larson, Bernie Obermueller, Dave Brandt and Doug “Wado” Standaert. Dave Brandt was on fire as he threw a 746 scratch series.

Brother Harry Standaert and yours truly moved into 4th place in doubles competition. A great time was had by all!!!

Joke of the Week

Sven and Ole were talking at a bar one day, and Ole tells Sven he just got kicked off the course for “breaking 60”.

Sven looks at him and says, “Breaking 60???  That’s amazing!”

Ole smiled and said, “Yeah, I didn’t know a golf cart could go that fast!!”
