Bud Sicard, Andrew Guba, Piper Chalmers, Katelyn Hiner, Alaina Degenstein, Adam Jodoin
Andrew Guba ended the longest winless drought in JBT history, while Alaina Degenstein continued a winning streak, in terrific JBT Pacific Northwest Conference action at Kingpins Portland.
The scratch division 'sprint' finals began with a three-way semifinal match, in which Guba's 267 was plenty to beat Tyler Coates' 221 and DoHoon Kwon's 208, advancing him to the title match. Top seeded Canadian Adam Jodoin had been brilliant en route to the top spot, and looked ready to win his first JBT title, and his wins will happen. But for Andrew, the time had finally come. Guba continued to strike, and the 247-212 win earned him the title. His only previous JBT win was a handicap title in- get this- February of 2009. That's two-thousand-nine. Not only is it the longest time between wins, but close to the longest possible time, as anyone currently over 9 years old can't break that record! We're of course happy for all our winners, but for Guba, a 2021 Jon Baker Sportsmanship winner, it was a universally lauded victory.
In the handicap division, Katelyn Hiner rolled a strong semifinal game to eliminate Invitational champ Kierra Wilcox and newcomer Ryan Mendell to reach her first JBT title match. However, Alaina Degenstein awaited her as a top seed on a big-time roll. After a win at Secoma last month, she showed great confidence in an excellent title game this time, beating Hiner for her second consecutive JBT title.
Piper Chalmers won the day's girls scratch subdivision with a win over Wilcox, while Bud Sicard continued his hot start to the season with a U17 win over Liam Hardman. Toby Wills won a ball of his choice from the brands of Brunswick courtesy of our great title sponsor. Big thanks to the team at the beautiful Kingpins for another great hosting job. Over $2,300 was awarded to all ages and skill levels- want in on the fun? Check out our schedule and come on down, that's all you have to do!

Reservations: Please email email@example.com 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% bowl a 2 game 'sprint' semifinals. The top 4 then do a 'sprint' finals with the 4, 3, and 2 seeds playing a three-way game, and the winner of that playing for the title.

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.
Points: This event counts for Pac NW 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.

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.
