Well we finally finished up our 9-Pin Tap Tournament last weekend!!!
We came back pretty good from last year’s covid-shortened tournament, putting 458 single entries and 446 doubles entries in the books.
Congratulations to Ione DeSmith for winning singles and Bryan Cress and Jessica Hager who took over doubles on the last night of the tournament!!!!
I’m hoping to have all the checks ready for pickup this Friday. I will send out the rest of the checks the following week.
In singles competition the lowest score to cash out is 833 and in doubles low payout is 1701.
I have a few people who have money coming but did not put an address on the entry form!! I’ll work on calling their phone numbers and getting addresses so I can send money out!!
Thanks to the following businesses for helping us sponsor the tournament: Pump House, Buckshots, Peg’s PleasantView, Brother’s Country Mart, Wood City Tavern, Fiddler’s Green, Wilson Legion, and Glen Hills Golf Course!!!
We are installing a new scoring system in the next couple weeks!! It’s hard to believe that we’ve had our old system for 19 years! I’m really looking forward to the new scoring experience.
Thanks to all of our bowlers for supporting us as we finish up our 30th year here at the Ol’ Rockpile!!!
Just a note to congratulate “Strikers” bowling team for winning the City Championship and Battle of the Sexes last week. This team is made up of Gary Standaert, Eric Dorwin, Tony Obermueller, Jordon Wink, and Roy Stevens. Great Bowling, fellas!!

Quote of the Week
“Why do they call it rush hour when nothing moves??” – Robin Williams
The Month of May
I just realized why this month is called May:
It may rain,
It may snow,
It may be 70 degrees,
It may be 20 degrees
Take Me In!
An Oregon State trooper pulled a car over on I-84. When the trooper asked the driver why he was speeding, the driver said he was a magician and juggler and was on his way to do a show for the Children’s Hospital. He didn’t want to be late.
The trooper told the driver he was fascinated by juggling and said if the driver would do a little juggling for him then he wouldn’t give him a ticket. The performer told the trooper he had sent his equipment ahead and didn’t have anything to juggle. The trooper said he had some flares in the trunk and asked if he could juggle them. The juggler said he could, so the trooper got five flares, lit them and handed them to him.
While the man was juggling, a car pulled in behind the patrol car. A drunk driver got out, watched the performance for a minute, then went over to the trooper’s car, opened the rear door and got in.
The trooper saw him and went over to his car, opened the door and asked the drunk what he thought he was doing.
The drunk replied, “You might as well take me to jail, ‘cause there ain’t no way I can pass that test.”
