Rockpile – 3-25-2015

Rockpile – 3-25-2015

I talked to a few bowlers that traveled to Appleton over the weekend for the Men’s State Bowling Tournament. “Nothing to write home about” is what one kegler told me, although my Leaker’s II team did slide into the number 4th spot in their division. Good job Leaker’s II!!!

Nick Veenendaal, who subs for Obermueller Trucking on the Hometown league, came within 5 pins of a 700 series last week. Veenendaal’s high game with the 695 series was a very nice 278 game. Nick is from Baldwin and normally bowls at Strikers!!

We had another bowler hit the 900 series mark over the weekend.

Michael Feist from Milltown, put up a 920 series to join four other bowlers who will compete for the $1000 purse for the singles 1st prize!!

Here are few gals that bowled some nice games this past wee: Lori Klinger 227, Cindy Rassbach, 226, and Cindy Drury 206. Good job ladies.

Georgia’s Golf Course

The owner of a golf course in Georgia was confused about paying an invoice, so he decided to ask his secretary for some mathematical help.

He called her into his office and said, “Y’all graduated from the University of Georgia, and I need some help. If I wuz to give yew $20,000, minus 14%, how much would you take off?”

The secretary thought a moment, and then replied, “Everythang but my earrings.”
