champs & finalists

        Yarelis Alvarez, DeeRonn Booker, Donald Gallegos, and Mia Medina earned JBT titles in exciting action at the Mountain Doubles Classic, held at Tenpins & More @ Rio Rancho.

        Kai Faulhaber teamed with JBT vet Brad Harvey to make his first career finals, and they won their opening match 231-212 over Tylor MacPhee and Brad's twin Zach.  A close semifinal saw Yarelis and DeeRonn stop Kai and Brad 225-216 to reach the title match.  Alvarez and Booker were tied with top seeds Ian Silva and William Entsminger after game 7, but grabbed the top seed with the higher team game of the day (aided by William's tournament-high 289).  Entsminger, who also brought his kids to bowl (pictured above), was truing to help Silva get his first scratch title after a bit of a struggle so far, but it was not to be as Yari and DeeRonn poured on the strikes.  The 237-205 final was good for Alvarez' 4th career JBT title, and a second for Booker.

        Alex Thompson teamed with high school teammate Carson Belnap to win round one of the handicap finals 185-182 over newcomers Brandon Kosel and Elijah Mann.   Gallegos and Medina defeated Alex and Carson in round two 203-161 to advance to the title match.  Land and Josh Matthies had bowled very well all day to grab the team, , and the finals was a nailbiter between four visibly nervous bowlers.  In the end Land had to double in the tenth, and when a 7-pin stood on the first ball, a relieved Mia and Donald claimed their first career titles.

        Big thanks as always to Steve and the team at Tenpins for hosting this annual event, and to all the alumni and adults coming back to bowl with today's talented kids.  Want in on all this fun?  Just check out our schedule and come on down!

Date: Sunday December 18, 2022  (This is ONE doubles tournament that is one day long.  Teams may be youth-youth OR youth-adult.  'Adult' is anyone 22 or over as of 8/1/22). 

Start Time: Bowling begins at 9 AM.

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: Partner may be another junior OR an adult ('adult' means anyone 22 or over as of 8/1/22).  Qualifying round is 4 team games.  The top 40% bowl a 3 game semifinals. The top 4 then do a Baker-format stepladder finals.  Bowlers may practice with any ball they want, but then must declare three balls to use for the rest of the event.  

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 Mountain 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 Mountain points, plus anyone who had a top-4 finish in a Mountain 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. 

Sponsor Incentive bonuses:  1) IAM Bowling: Bowlers making the final match of an event (scratch or handicap) wearing an IAM patch (good), any IAM shirt (better), or an IAM JBT shirt (best) earn point bonuses towards a $5,000 IAM incentive jackpot.  (The IAM patch is requested to be worn by all bowlers).   2) Virtue Bowling: Bowlers making the final match of an event (scratch or handicap, win or lose), using a Virtue Bowling shirt or patch, and a Virtue drilled ball, earn a $25 Virtue gift card.  

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 are $400, $200, $150, $100.  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 $2,500 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 event is full and on a wait list.  Please contact us asap to get on the wait list, or make any changes to your entry.
