Rockpile – 2-28-2017

Leaker’s Place was top dog on the Hometown League, as the 3rd quarter ended last week. Leaker’s snuck it out by edging East Bay Lodge by a mere 1.5 points.

On the Town and Country league, the Wilson Legion Gunners pulled out the third quarter honors. Great job guys!!

Mike Wink put up his second “700” of the year by bowling a 702 series last Monday night. Wink bowls on the M&M Bar team. Nice rolling, Mike!!

9-Pin continues this weekend as we have a crew from the Broadway Bowl in Menomonie trucking down for the tournament. Thanks, Spike!
