It is with great sadness that I heard Scot Charrier passed away yesterday from cancer .  
He was living in Bismarck, and was our tech support guy for our computers when i was working at Rolette County. and also he was a classmate of our Tina’s-  only 41 years old.  He was a very nice kid and a super nice man whenever we had to call him cause we messed our computers up at work-

1962 Rugby Home coming game
Comment from Kenny Nerpel (’65):  Rugby, ND
Kenneth wrote: “So Sue graduated with the Rugby class of 1963. I heard an interesting story about the great athletic teams that Rugby had in those years when I was at the homecoming game earlier this year. I think it was 1962 and Rugby was just manhandling everyone they played that year in basketball. If I remember correctly they won the state championship that year and that was in Class A. Anyway, when Jamestown came to town to play the Pathers that year their coach decided to stall the entire game. The guy I was talking to after the football game thought the final score was 13-11 and Rugby’s star player had 12 points, outscoring the Jamestown team by himself. The highlight of the evening though was when a lady from the crowd rushed up to the Jamestown bench and started beating on the their coach with her purse. I’m wondering if this is a true story. I did go to few Rugby games that year, but would have liked to have seen that one.”
