Pat Shingleton: "Cider, With a Punch!"
A hoedown is a dance or traditional fiddle tunes. Octobers in high school included the Varsity "R" Hoedown, a fundraiser for the athletic teams that included food, music and cider drinking competitions. One contestant spilled a mug of cider. As my brother Mike cleaned the mess, Bobo Tincani stepped into the cider puddle. Mike told him to move and Bobo made the mistake of saying, "Make me!" With Jim Richards as Mike's top second, Bobo was directed to Locust Grove School to settle the disagreement. On a clear, chilly, October evening Mike, Jim, Bobo and his entourage poured out of their cars. Before Bobo could get his coat off, Mike landed two rights and a left, knocked him out and settled the cider dispute.
