Rockpile – 3-18-2015

Rob Logghe was “oh so close” to that 700 Board last week as Logghe rolled a dandy 276 game with a 699 series. That “700” would have put him on the tote board along with 14 other 700 series bowled this year. That’s still some pretty bowling, Rob!!!

The bowling season is slipping away as we only have about four more weeks of regular league to go!! The weather this past week certainly should have a bunch of bowlers anxious for the golfing season to roll around.

We are at the halfway point in our annual 9-pin tap tournament with approximately six weeks to go.

Men’s State Bowling will capture about 50 bowlers from Glenwood City this weekend as we have a large crew invading Appleton, Wisconsin for the annual tournament. I’ll put some updates in next week’s “Rockpile”.

St. Patrick’s Day Limericks

There was a young boy named Sean,
Whose wish of a sly leprechaun,
Was to be surrounded by doe,
And thus it was so,
In six months he was born as a fawn.

A man, while drinking Light Bud,
crashed his car with a sickening thud,
The car that he hit,
Had a warlock in it
Now he lives as a frog in the mud!!

Irish Blessings

May you have only pleasant hours,
to melt your time away,
And the warmth of Irish laughter
to bring a smile everyday

May our heart be light and happy
May your smile be big and wide,
And may your pockets always have
a tinkle of gold inside!!

Happy Birthday March 17 – Jessica Lynn Hawkins!!
