TOURNAMENT OF ALL-TIME CHAMPS & FUTURE CHAMPS
Lindsay Greim, Cortez Schenck, Brandon Rother, Brendan Bobersky, Christian Ortega, Nathan Harnit, Jon Abigania, Bryce Nakunz
Cortez Schenck showed a new generation what his level of dominance looked like, while 3 others enjoyed the feeling of JBT victory- two for the first time- in terrific action at the JBT's Tournament of All-Time Champs, and simultaneous Tournament of Future Champs, held at Phoenix's Let it Roll.
The T of C is always one of our favorite events as we welcome back anyone who ever won a JBT event, creating a unique, fun, and tough atmosphere as today's stars take on the best of all time. Cortez started the day with 280-279 to open up a lead he never lost. After Josh Molloy beat Allex Zieg to start the stepladder, Jakob Butturff edged Molloy in a great match to set up a title match between two of JBT's all-time greats, not to mention established and rising PBA stars. Jakob and Schenck had played for many JBT titles in their overlapping careers, each coming out with wins, but Butturff, with 32 career JBT wins, couldn't keep up with Cortez' front seven in the final, and Tez cruised to the win, which happens to be #99 of the JBT g.o.a.t's career.
The handicap stepladder featured four Southern California juniors, as Brandon Rother beat Lindsay Greim and Jon Abigania to face top seed Bryce Nakunz for the title. The familiar foes have faced each other numerous times, but after a tense tenth frame, Brandon escaped on top for his third career JBT title and $500 top prize.
In the non-champs event, Brendan Bobersky led start to finish, and fended off fellow GCU 'lope Ben Laffoon to finally win his first JBT title, and a measure of redemption after a season filled with some oh-so-close calls. Nathan Harnit beat Dylan Donahue and Connor Meliska to advance against top seed Christian Ortega for the handicap non-champs win. The 11 year-old from Casa Grande showed no fear in the finale, rolling another solid game to become a JBT champion with the win.
Conner Pendergrass delighted the crowd with the only 300 game of the day, and the first of his career. DJ Kneifel came close to joining him, with a 299 to open the scratch non-champs stepladder against Dodge Flynn. Mountain Invite champs Xaden Todacheenie won the day's ball from our terrific title sponsor Ebonite.
Giant thanks to the team at Let It Roll for an excellent hosting job, and all our alumni for coming back to be JBT bowlers again for one fun day. Check out our schedule for upcoming dates and we'll see you soon!

Divisions/ Averages: Scratch or handicap. It is the bowlers' choice of division. 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.

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.
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.
