Rockpile – 5-9-2018

We had a shootout last Wednesday night to determine which team would have bragging rights for the Glenwood City bowling championship. The match had the Hometown champs, East Bay Lodge, Town and Country champs, Booz Bar and Grill, The Men’s Senior Squad, Global Genetics and the Women’s M&M champs. After the smoke cleared, Booz Bar and Grill dominated the three-game roll-off. This team was made up of John Hager, Peg Obermueller, Cheryl Standaert, Carey Kuehl and Brian Casey. Congratulations, kids!!!

We had roll-offs to determine the 9-Pin Tap Tournament champ this past Friday night. We had a field of 12 bowlers who qualified for the “grand finale”. Dennis O’Bryan bowled a perfect “900” series, stringing together three 300s!!! Brad Gregory came in second place with a 859. O’Bryan and Gregory are both from the Twin Cities area. Cindy Rassbach placed 3rd and Bill Standaert took the 4th spot.

Jason Maes and Mike Popowitz locked up the doubles competition with an 1857. Congratulations keglers and thanks to all of the bowlers and sponsors.

Starting next week, we will be closed on Sundays and Mondays for the summer months.

Bowlers: please take your equipment home if you do not have a locker!

I will have 9-pin checks done by this coming weekend. If the checks are not picked up over the weekend, I’ll send them out the following week.

Have a safe and fun summer!!!    – “Leaker” & Cheryl
