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!
