To all our loyal readers. We have the results of the midseason tournament. A grand time was had by all as shown by your participation. In Division One the winners were Tom Ryan and Bobby McGwyer. Division Two saw Dancer Rogers and Mike Leahy taking first while Pat Palmese and Mike McCarthy were the runners up. In Division Three it was John and Jimmy Lynch as the winners with Kelly Divilly and Kevin Timmons in second. Billy Sieglakis and Janet Of the R.B.I. Freebirds took on Heinz Ozols and Julie Fox to Take Division Four’s top slot. Congratulations to all you winners.
We are up to week eight of the season. Second half scores could change the entire league. In Division One, The Dragons faced their own bar. The Blackwater Buckshots left their lady in the Dragons hands, having been defeated 10-9. Raintower Lost and Found were recovered by scoring 16 points to the Altar Boys three points. Healy’s Havoc could not incite a win against the Rock Lobsters. They were defeated by a score of 16-3. Bobby Glade of the Rock Lobsters said "We’ve had a tough time of it the first half of the season with only half our line up being able to show up." Congratulations to T. Blake, D. Smith, and Bobby Glade; all won their first games played this season. A special congratulations to Bobby Glade who managed to Double In and Double Out in a 501 game for the first time in his career playing in this league. Kenny Grey also deserves a mention hitting an R9.
The Blackwater Drive by Shooters plugged the Grassy Point Beestingers. Scoring 10 points to the Stingers nine. The K. of C. Blue Knights could not hold their territoty against the Raintower E-Bombs, having been napalmed to the tune of 10-9. A belated congratulations goes out to Cam Livingston of the Catholic Club’s Choir Boys for shooting a 180 against the E-bombs weeks ago. Sorry it took so long Cam.
The undefeated Kellys’ Heros have had their first defeat. The Raintower Yada Yadas took them down scoring 13 points to the Heros 6 points. Kerry Hill’s Dan Paddy Andy’s upset the Kerry Hill’s Insane Asylum with their first win scoring 10 points over Insane Asylum’s nine points.
Coaches, please send your score sheets in to Brian as soon as possible. Any discrepancies in previous weeks should be brought to his attentions immediately. You may want to include this on a separate sheet of paper for convenience. As coaches it behooves you to not only understand, but to have available the rules and regulations. Compliance is everyone’s responsibility.
We would like to thank Brian for compiling an up to date list of our league all star shooters and their point standings. Many of you have expressed an interest in forming a Rockaway All Star team to compete against other borough leagues. Perhaps you are interested in competing on a city or nationwide level. We hope to touch more upon this in the future. We will need your input to investigate further.
The following is a flagrant plug. One of your columnists has a poem published on an internet E-Zine. For those of you interested in Speculative Science Fiction the site address is www.darkmoonrising.com/mystic/fires/default.asp. The name of the poem is What of Tomorrow? Check it out and let me know what you think.
Before closing, your feedback and follow-up is heard and necessary. As the season, we should work towards making this a more functional and enjoyable league for all. This is only possible with your appreciated feedback and opinions. Let’s make it a better league for all.
We appreciate the concern of everyone who attended the benefit for Mike Nolan. Our thoughts and prayers are always with his family and friends. Kerry Hill’s has moved to a new location at Beach 115 street and Rockaway Beach boulevard. Its interior decor is a gracious and noteworthy asset to the Rockaway community. Thanks to Mike Monath of the Blackwater Dragons for his assistance in this weeks article. Skilled Chucking to all and to all, a true cork.
