Hunter Mayes, Chris Mayes, London Reyes, Keegan Olson; Nathan Tidball; Briella Bullard
Chris Mayes stopped an historic performance by his brother, while London Reyes tasted victory for the first time, in an exciting JBT bonus event at Bowlero Kyrene.
With the PBA Jr. event in town (won by Avery Domaguin and Harry Davis, and saturated with JBT regulars all over the finals), this event was an alternative for those who missed that cut or didn't bowl in it. In the scratch division, Hunter Mayes came out on absolute fire, blasting 816 for his first three, and backing that up with 268 game four for a blistering 1084 4-game qualifying set. Single-game matchplay after that isn't ideal for such a big lead, but he managed to survive to the final. If there's anyone fearless of Hunter, it's his brother Chris, who can strike just as much when he gets hot, and won his matches to get to the final to face him. Unfortunately for Hunter, he lost the look on the final pair, and Chris took advantage for the win, and the 8th title of his excellent JBT career.
Hannah Hughes grabbed the handicap division qualifying lead and first-round bye, but fell to newcomer Jessica Read in the quarterfinals. Keegan Olson, who earlier won the '27' jackpot for a quick $100 scholarship bonus, then stopped Read to get to the final. He'd face #6 Reyes, who beat RJ Pointon and Matthew Christensen to reach the last game. Reyes was able to hang in and get the win, good for the first title of his JBT career.
Nathan Tidball won both U17 and the day's EBI/Brunswick family ball, while Briella Bullard captured the girls scratch side event. Big thanks to the team at Kyrene, where it all began with JBT event #1, for a great job hosting our Tour for the first time in a while. Want in on all this fun?

|Bowlero Kyrene- final results and scholarship winners|
|TOTAL AWARDED THIS EVENT: $1,339|
Date: Sunday September 18, 2022 (This is ONE tournament that is one day long, open to anyone age 21 & under as of 8/1/22).
Start Time: Bowling begins at 10 AM.
Re-entries?: There's only one qualifying squad, so there are no re-entries this event.
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 4 games. The top 40% to a maximum of 16 advance to single game 'sprint' matchplay.
Divisions/ Averages: Scratch or handicap. It is the bowlers' choice of division. Also, everyone age 16 or under as of 8/1/22 is automatically entered in the U-17 side event. 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 does NOT count for points. (Bowlers making the cut in Saturday's PBA Junior event can't bowl this event, so points would not be fair). However, everything else is still good- Invitational qualifying, scholarship prizes, etc. Visit the 'statistics' section of the website to check on your points. As the end of the season, the top 32 in Arizona points, plus anyone who had a top-4 finish in an Arizona event this season, advance to their respective Invitationals.
Entry fee: $40. Scholarship brackets are available for $2 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 $300, $150, $100, $60. 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 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.
