champs and finalists; '27' winner Tasia Massengale
Dramatic finishes capped off a day of great performances at the JBT Mojave Doubles classic, hosted by Las Vegas' Sam's Town Bowling Center.
Dominic Montoya and Tyler Castronova began the baker-format scratch division stepladder finals with a 225-190 win over Jay and Hayden Fernandez. They stayed on a roll in round two, getting by JP Griffin and JBT alumni Nick Pollak 235-196 to reach the title match. Top seeds Sebastian Huffman and Jerry Johnson had slowed down a bit from their blistering 567 game one start (featuring a tournament high 299 by Jerry), but regained the lead late, and also had the lead late in the final. However, Castronova stepped up in the tenth needing strike-spare to win, and 9-spare-strike to tie. Tyler got the 9-count on the first ball but missed the spare, giving the stunned Johnson and Huffman the win, good for Sebastian's fifth career JBT title.
The team of Dylan Donahue and Austin Nash opened the handicap finals with a 225-160 win over Steve Abarca and Devin Montoya. Jon Abigania and Caden Sham, all of 20 years old and six feet tall between the two of them- then stopped Dylan and Austin to reach the title game. Gage Baker and Nathan Tidball bowled extremely well all day to gain the top seed, but the bowling gods had some cruel symmetry in store, as it was Nathan's turn to miss a tenth frame single pin, also costing his team the match, and giving Jon and Caden the third and second titles of their JBT careers. It was not unnoticed by the crowd or the directors the grace with which both winners and runners-up handled the heartbreak (and joy), a true credit to the sportsmanship of all involved.
Tasia Massengale nailed the '27' jackpot for a quick $100, while Josh Abigania won the day's bowling ball from the brands of Brunswick. Christy, Tom, and the team at Sam's Town did their usual phenomenal hosting job on a busy day. Over $4,300 in scholarships were awarded to all ages and skill levels on the weekend- want in on the fun? Just check out our schedule and come on down!

Divisions/ Averages: Scratch or handicap. It is the teams' choice of division, except that teams over 400 must bowl scratch. 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.
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: $80 per team. Youth scholarship brackets are available for $2 each. Separate adult singles cash brackets are $5 each. Raffle tickets for Ebonite bowling balls, and our PowerBowl and '27' jackpots, are available on-site.

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 $2,500 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.
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.
