Bud Light trails the Brown Shoe Fit Company by 19. After their first ever first place standing last week head shoe horn Jeff Bahr cornered this publisher at a graduation on Woodland Avenue about the short two sentence description of his team’s performance last week in this report. One way to get more publicity is to keep winning and that is exactly what they did last night. The smelly shoes clobbered the Carroll Cycle Center 44 to 28. John Nepple and Todd Bierl led the way beating Jamming Joe Hinners and Head Hog Terry Ruchti 12 to 6. Jeff Bahr beat Rick Vanderheiden and Paul Tigges tied with Corey Bluml.
The head oil jobber Chico Kanne was beaten soundly by Ron Juergens 12 to 6. Kanne’s bubble may have burst after his win over Captain Franey last week. Jerry Janson and Todd Kanne carried the oil jobbers to a 39 to 33 victory over Linde Equipment.
The Masters Flight saw a blistering red hot Denny Kasperbauer shoot even par 34 to capture low gross and low net honors on his way to a 15 to 3 pummeling of Brad Pick.

The produce of Tom Duff was rotten last night as he shot a 7 over 41 and lost to Mike Loehr 12 to 6. Ed Catfish Tomka lost for the second time in as many weeks to retiring councilman Jeff Scharfenkamp. Papa Joe Pick was the only winner for the Mid Iowa Team beating John Gradoville. Tomato John was complaining about falling off a ladder and missing a putt on the last hole to lose to the famous farmer. It was Tomato’s first round of the year and he better ask for permission to work on his game. Graddy’s Salsa beat Mid Iowa 40 to 32. League records indicate that this is the lowest ranking by a defending champion after two weeks in league history. Papa Joe is going to have to rally the troops and get control of this team. One has to wish the Farmer a more successful planting of his seeds.
Ron Juergens was closest to the pin on #8 and Jerry Janson drained the longest putt on #9.
The Phil Mickelson Division was contested on the front nine and saw the Sharp Funeral Home shatter the glass of Carroll Glass 46 to 26. No winners for the glass company.

The head teller Matt Lujano was worn out from demo days and collapsed against the razor sharp blades of Clint Cummings. In a noon hour interview Lujano was very excited to attend demo days and it is the only way for lefties to try out new equipment. One has to think that Lujano could think about crossing over the other side of the ball. Pat Macke also lost for the I phone team.
Bud One Jim Auen received a late in the day paper cut and was unable to make the call for the Stiff Sticks. The sticks played one man short, played well though only to come up a little short 42 to 30. Byronz Boys were led by Bob Giguere and Brock Jones.
