JIM KENT CLASSIC at RIVERSIDE LANES

Ashton Yamasaki, Mac Kaurin, Karson Schwind; Jessica Holbrook

        Ashton Yamasaki and Karson Schwind wrapped up a wonderful weekend honoring the great Jim Kent with big wins in exciting JBT Pacific Northwest Conference action at Mount Vernon's Riverside Lanes.

        Bowlers competed in the exciting 'super survivor' format, where after qualifying, both the low game and low series are eliminated from the event.  Twelve scratch qualifiers on the extremely demanding 'Mexico City' lane pattern were carved down to four, and in that penultimate round, Duncan Whitaker, the leader by almost 100 pins and the only bowler to qualify over a 200 average, picked a bad time for his low game of the day, and was eliminated in third, while Matthew Lennox, who had climbed steadily up from being the cut number, finally ran out of room, bowling out in fourth place by just six pins on total pinfall.

        That left Ashton Yamaskai (who had fended off Lennox with a tenth frame double) and Mac Kaurin standing.  Ashton had hit the pocket okay but hadn't found a way to carry all day, with just three previous 200 games, but it all finally clicked in the title match, stringing the strikes for a 245-171 win over Kaurin for his 5th career JBT victory.  Kaurin was consoled with a win over Danny Chalmers for the U17 subdivision title, in our second 'mac and cheese' title match of the young season.   

        Thirteen handicap survivors were whittled down to four as well, and in the round of four, Erick Romen bowed out with low game, giving him back to back fourth place finishes for the weekend, while Kyle Soper, making his first finals, had the next lowest total pinfall, finishing up in third place. Still standing were Karson Schwind, with by far the highest pinfall at that point, and Toby Wills, making his first title match since winning his second ever event three seasons ago.   This is a spot where rookie finalists like Karson often falter, but Schwind stayed strong, rolling a confident game to beat Wills and earn his first career JBT title.

        Girls Scratch went to Jessica Holbrook, with a grindout win over Payton Bower.  while Hailey Lennox (who survived for four rounds at the cut line herself) won the day's Ebonite bowling ball.   

        Huge thanks as always to the team at Riverside for being great and dedicated hosts, and big supporters of tournament bowling!  The weekend's prize fund was nearly doubled by generous contributions from the Boe family and 11-time champ Marshall Kent, who coordinated proceeds from the PBA's Jim Kent Memorial's raffles to support this event's scholarships.  As a result, over $5,100 was awarded to all ages and skill levels- wow!  Want in on the fun?  Just check out our schedule and come on down!

Date: Sunday November 7  (This is ONE tournament that is one day long. Saturday is a separate one day event.  You can bowl only Saturday, only Sunday, or both).  

Start Time: Sunday qualifying squad at 10 AM, one squad only.

Re-entries?:  There's only one qualifying squad, so there are no re-entries this event..

Reservations:  Please email director@bowljbt.com to reserve a spot.  You can prepay (not required) at the 'Prepaying' section of this website.  Reservations (paid or unpaid) must check in no later than 15 minutes before start time.  At that time, all bowlers will be taken on a first come, first serve basis until the field is full.

Format: Qualifying round is 5 games.  The top 40% to a maximum of 16 move on 'super survivor' matchplay.

Divisions/ Averages:  Scratch or handicap.  It is the bowlers' choice of division.  Also, everyone age 16 or under as of 8/1/21 is automatically entered in the U-17 side event.   Also, every female is automatically entered in the Girls Scratch side event.   If this is your first JBT event this season, we will be asking for average info.  In most cases, your highest average from any current form of organized competition of at least 15 games is what we need.  If you bowl in multiple leagues / clubs, bring everything and we'll sort it out for you.  After your first JBT event, your average is re-rated before every JBT event according to JBT rules.  Please see JBT Rule 13 for complete details.

Points:  This event counts for Pacific Northwest Conference and All-Conference points.  Points qualify you for the big money season-ending Invitationals and Touring Players Championship, so get all you can.  Visit the 'statistics' section of the website to check on your points.  After this event, the top 32 in Pac NW points, plus anyone who had a top-4 finish in a Pac NW JBT event this season, advance to the Invitational.

Entry fee: $50 handicap; $60 scratch.  Scholarship brackets are available for $2 each.  Raffle tickets for Ebonite bowling balls, and our PowerBowl and '25' jackpots, are available on-site. 

Covid details: JBT events follow- at least- all local Covid safety protocols, which you must be prepared for.   Please stay posted so you're not surprised about anything required of you. 

Scholarships: 1:6 in each division earn scholarships, scratch and handicap.  Minimum prizes in scratch are $300, $150, $100, $60.  In handicap, $250, $125, $75, $50.  Bowlers must finish in the top 4 once this season to qualify for that conference's Invitational, which features $1,000 for first place.  Bowlers who finish in the top 20 in a conference's points race, or the top 100 in all-conference points, qualify for the Touring Players Championship, featuring $2,000 for first.

Lane conditions: conditions vary from event to event, and are not posted prior to the event (unless otherwise announced).  Some events do not post the pattern until after qualifying.  Be ready for anything- it makes you a better bowler!  Check out previous patterns and corresponding cut scores at the 'lane conditions' section of this website.

Dress code:  Anything goes EXCEPT tank tops, hats, gym shorts, clothing promoting alcohol, drugs, or firearms, or excessively ripped or short clothing, subject solely to the director's discretion.  However, bowlers wearing slacks or dress shorts/skirts, and a 'name shirt' or PBA-style 'dye-sub' shirt, or college or high school team shirt, earn an extra 10 points on their season-long points total.  If you're not sure about dress code, check with us.  If you're new to us, the vast majority of the bowlers do dress in the 'bonus' dress code, and those points become very important, so plan accordingly.

RESERVED BOWLERS:

PLEASE do not forget to contact us if you need to cancel or adjust your reservation.  This list may not be updated after the Friday of the event as we travel, etc.  However, walk-ins / late entries are still gladly accepted as space permits.  There is generally plenty of room for walk-ins / late entries, and we'll  post here clearly if an event is nearing sellout or sold out.
