Rockpile – 2-28-2018

Congrats to Obermueller Trucking as the winners of the 3rd quarter on the Hometown League. On the Town and Country league, Booz Bar and Grill clinched the third quarter honors.

Matt McGee put up his 2nd “700” series of the year with a nice 704 series on Monday Nite (Hometown League).  Nice job, Matt!!

Dave Brandt rolled a dandy 754 series, while Doug Standaert put up a 707. “Tito” Tim Veenendall from Baldwin bowled a nice 740 series. A good time was had by all!!! (We took about 20 keglers)
