Rockpile – 9-19-2018

Ben Krosnoski pounded the pocket last week on the first night of Mens League and put up a 299 game with a great 762 series!! Way to start the season Ben!!

Lori Klinger rolled a nice 245 game on the Saturday Nite Mixed league along with a 545 series.

Just a reminder to a couple of leagues: Wed. Afternoon Fun Day will be next week, Sept. 26 at 12:30. The Men’s senior league will have their Fun Day this Thursday, Sept. 20 at 12:30!!

We still have room for a few more subs. Stop in or call for details!!

It wasn’t a great weekend for Wisconsin sports teams. The Badgers really struggled with the loss to BYU and the Brewers lost 2 out of 3 to Pittsburg and of course the Packers ended up with a tie with the Queens!! What a terrible call on Clay Matthews!!!! Could be a long season.
