Rockpile – 1-17-2018

Tony Obermueller came up just a tad short of a “700” series last week on the Hometown League. Tony put together a nice 689 series, the highest he has bowled on a league. Great job, Tony!!

B.O.O.B. took honors for the first half on the Sat. Nite Mixed League over the weekend and finally my Leaker’s gals edged out the Hair Depot for the 1st half on the Wednesday Afternoon League. Congrats!!!

We’ll be starting our 9-Pin Tap Tournament in a couple weeks, so if you didn’t get a squad put together yet, call or stop in to reserve your spot.
