Andrew Sager, Caden Meliska, Blain Voclain, Keith Ylvisaker, Daryus Alo, Mason Snow, Matthew Garrett
Keith Ylvisaker claimed his first scratch title, while newcomer Blain Voclain claimed his first ever title, in terrific JBT dual-conference action at Kingman's Cerbat Lanes.
Mason Snow made his first career scratch division stepladder finals a success with a 193-170 win over former TPC champ Matthew Garrett in round one. Mason then doubled in his tenth frame of the semifinals, but could only watch as Ylvisaker did the same, escaping in a 206-200 thriller to get to the title game. Keith's fellow Cactus bowler Andrew Sager bowled great all day, switching the lead back and forth with Ylvisaker and hanging on to the #1 spot, but could not find a look on the championship pair. Keith took advantage for the win, long awaited first scratch title, and third overall career JBT win.
Ethan Roxborough won a tiebreaker over RJ Pointon to get into the finals, but could not keep the momentum going as Caden Meliska beat him to open the handicap finals 203-176. Caden kept rolling in the semifinals, beating former Desert Open champ Araceli Hunt 217-202 to reach his first title match in a while. Top seed 11 year-old Blain Voclain was nervous about his first JBT event, but the field quickly became nervous about Blain's skills, as he fired the FOUR highest games of his life as part of his nine-game performance, one of them being the title game, where he defeated Meliska for his first career JBT title.
Kendall Bollea picked up the new season where she left off the last, with another Girls Scratch win, this time over TPC Girls champ Koryn Marquez. U17 went to Daryus Alo, with a win over fellow Las Vegan JR Barczyszyn.

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. If you don't have 15+ games in any organized competition this season, we need your finishing 21-22 average, and any 2022 summer averages. 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.

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.
This reservation is an expectation that you will be bowling. PLEASE do not forget to contact us if you need to cancel or adjust your reservation. Repeated 'no-shows' may result in you not being able to reserve a spot. 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.
