Left to right are Don Betz of the Rodents, Don Wolf of the See Mees and Larry Dwyer, also of the Rodents. Three other teams make up the carrier loop, and games are played every Wednesday night at the YMCA.” This game took place at the old YMCA Building, 617 Main St., which is now occupied by Western Technical College’s Administrative Center.
