Rockpile – 11-15-2017

Brent Standaert joined the “700” last week as Standaert rolled a 702 series on the Hometown League. This is the eighth 700 bowled so far this year!! Good job Brent!!

[emember_protected] We’ll be taking off next week as it’s time to go “buck” hunting. Good luck hunters and don’t forget to get on our “Buck Board” here at the Ol’ Rockpile.

We finished off our 6 week long Junior League this past Sunday. We had over 30 kids participate. A special thank you to John and Jessica Hager, Kathy Alleman and Barb Mrdutt for helping out with the Junior League. It was a huge success.

Oh, deer
