Happy 60th Birthday Uncle Bruce......Repeat winners in the Bet on Uncle Bruce Tourney..Blessington named offensive player of the game!

Happy 60th Birthday Uncle Bruce!

It was a cold and rainy day when 18 teams gathered at the Carroll Bowl and the Carroll Country Club to celebrate the life of Bruce Pettitt with some bowling, golf and gambling!

Chad Kanne, Brad Stork, Nic Volquartsen and Kevin Forke defended their championship for the second straight year! 
Grandma Eileen and Sister Sue show off the family bowling talents

The Pettitt crew were out in full force to show support for Grandpa Uncle Bruce! Thanks for all of the time and energy that you put in to making this a great day!
The winners started early and never looked back. Here they are enjoying an Uncle Bruce favorite...a zinger!

The weather did not dampen the celebration! Thanks to everyone who participated. A signed Presidential flag brought $2,700 and a round at Glen Oaks brought $500 at the auction. Thanks for your bids!

Mark Blessington of Auburn, Iowa was named the UNI offensive player of the game in a great game against North Dakota State on Saturday. Blessington is nephew of Papa Joe Pick and is a two time participant in the Papa Joe Classic. Mark's sister also lives in Carroll....Dr. Michelle Heim along with husband John. Great job Mark! He is the son of Jerry and Kay Blessington of Auburn.

That is a wrap on this birthday Monday!

Happy Birthday my friend!

Franey's win Superintendents Revenge.....Pick and Cuda suffer fall league loss..... and Uncle Bruce tourney this Sunday!

Mike Franey and Lynda Dukes Franey scored a victory on Sunday in the Superintendents Revenge Tournament on the fairways and greens of the Carroll Country Club. Thanks for Jim and Barron for making this a truly enjoyable event.
Wonder if we can keep the trophy alive until next year! 

In one of the best tasting victories in history Kyle Atkinson and Mike Franey beat the legends last night in week 4 action of the Men's Fall League at the Carroll Country Club. Papa Joe was visibly upset with the loss and stomped out of the club house on his way to Pleasant Ridge Road to be consoled by Duece the Dog!. Team turmoil is setting in with the famous two some. Counseling services will be on hand later this week for their emotional loss.

Jon Sturm and Tyler Tassell remain two points ahead of Atkinson and Franey in the Pine Valley Divsion. The teams of Andy Reiman and Keith Pottebaum  are tied with Head Hog Terry Ruchti and Jamming Joe Hinners in the Oakmont Division.  Denny Kasperabuer and Neal Cross are leading the Cypress Point Division. Scott Monical and Leon Muhlbauer are leading the Pebble Beach Division.

The Bet On Uncle Bruce tourney is this Sunday at the Carroll Bowl and the Carroll Country Club. To get your team contact Wade Pettitt at the Carroll Country Club Pro Shop. The defending champs are entered in the field.
Brad Stork, Chad Kanne, Kevin Forke and Nic Volquartsen 
The Pettitt family will be on hand to welcome all the players!
I hope to see you all on Sunday as we celebrate the life of Uncle Bruce Pettitt with some gambling, bowling and golfing! An auction will conclude the event with some great auction items including a 2013 President's Cup Autographed Flag.

See you Sunday!

On Iowa and Go Hawks Beat Michigan State!
