Allex Zieg, Hunter Mayes, Ezekiel Trejo, Connor Bell, Sebastian Huffman, Katelyn Abigania

        Hunter Mayes claimed a landmark victory, while Ezekiel Trejo claimed an emphatic first, in terrific JBT Mojave Conference action at Las Vegas' Sam's Town Bowling Center. 

        In the scratch division, bowlers competed in the 'nervewracker' format, where matches that end up tied 1-1 go into a one-shot rolloff to determine the winner.  The format more than lived up to its name in the semifinals.  In one match, Allex Zieg won the rolloff over Tyler Castronova 8-7 on the second shot.  That was only half of what Cerell Cardines and Mayes went through, as after 8-8-, 10-10, and 9-9 ties, Hunter prevailed on the fourth shot 10-9 to advance to the title match.  In the finals, Hunter won a high scoring first game 260-238, but the second game was a complete grind with strikes hard to come by.  Needing two strikes in the tenth to shut out, Allex got the first but not the second.  Mayes then had a chance to do the same, and flushed a perfect double to finally capture the 20th title of his JBT career, just the 15th bowler all-time to reach that stellar achievement. 

        Handicap bowler also competed in an exciting matchplay bracket, and top seed Trejo looked to be on his way out against Chase Simmons, until a big finish to game two completed a comeback for that win, and he rode the momentum to beat Gavin Fernandez in his semifinal as well.  Arizona's Connor Bell emerged from the other side of the bracket, getting past previous day's runner-up Gabriel Thomas to advance against Ezekiel for the title.  The finale was all Trejo, as he rolled a confident game while Bell struggled to find he form that got him there, and 10 year-old Ezekiel claimed his first career JBT title with the win.

        Sebastian Huffman claimed the day's U!7 win with a victory over Tyler Castronova, while Katelyn Abigania completed a fine weekend with a win over Vianne Daniels for the Girls Scratch title.  Ethan Jorge won the day's Ebonite ball from our terrific title sponsor.  Huge thanks to Tom, Christy, and the team at Sam's for their usual great hosting job.  Want in on all the fin for all skill levels and ages?  Just check out the schedule and come on down!

Date: Sunday April 10, 2022  (This is ONE tournament that is one day long. Sunday is a separate one day event.  You can bowl only Sunday, only Saturday, or both).  

Start Time: Sunday qualifying squad at 10 AM, one squad only.  Please try and check in by 9:30 AM; check in will be available by 8 AM. 

Equipment: JBT follows all USBC ball regulations.  The 6 Storm/Roto/Global balls recently banned at USBC national events CAN be used at this event (this is not a 'national' event).  The Storm Spectre, and 2016-17 purple hammers CANNOT be thrown.  All holes in a ball must be occupied (since 2020).  Please contact us with any questions.

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

Reservations:  Please email 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% advance to a maximum of 16 advance to matchplay, using the 'nervewracker' format in scratch.  

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 Mojave 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.  As the end of the season, the top 32 in Mojave points, plus anyone who had a top-4 finish in a Mojave event this season, advance to their respective Invitationals.

Entry fee: $50 handicap; $60 scratch.  Scholarship brackets are available for $2 each.  Raffle tickets for Ebonite bowling balls, and our PowerBowl and '26' 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.


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.
