champs and finalists

        A fantastic Easter event resulted in two big wins for Aaron Coleman and Jake King, winning JBT titles at Mesa East Bowl in Arizona Conference action.

        After qualifying, advancers moved on to a modified matchplay with a 'play in' round to allow for up to 24 bowlers to make the cut.  The full 24 advanced in handicap, and King, the top seed for the second straight day, defended his seed with a win over previous day's champ #12 Jakob Enright to advance out of the quarterfinals, while yesterday's runner-up, #2 Nicholas Harnit, was upset by #15 Cameron Coleman.  In the semifnals, #3 Josh DiGangi beat Coleman, and King stopped #9 Jacob Vasquez, to set up the final.  Josh bowled well in the finals, but King kept his composure, winning the match for a long awaited second JBT title.

        The scratch division top seeds struggled after their two-round byes, with top seed Hunter Mayes upset by #8 Aaron Coleman and #2 Nick Barrieault stopped by #7 Keith Ylvisaker.  Coleman consolidated the upset with another win over #4 Jason Gootzeit, and #3 Josh Abigania reaching another title match with a win over Ylvisaker.  In the resulting final, Aaron turned a tight match into a solid win with 9th and 10th frame strikes, earning his first scratch and fourth overall career JBT title with the victory.

        Gootzeit won an exciting U17 final over Katelyn Abigania with a big 235 game, but Katelyn still found a way to win something, beating Kendall Bollea for the day's Girls Scratch title.  Dozens of bonus prizes were awarded in our popular annual easter egg hunt, including bonus balls from the brands of Brunswick.  Giant thanks to our incredible hosts at Mesa East for having us again.  Want in on all this fun and excitement for all ages and skill levels?  Just check out our schedule and come on down!

Start Time: Bowling begins at 10 AM.

Re-entries?:  There's only one qualifying squad, so there are no re-entries this event..

This event features our very popular annual Easter Egg Hunt, with lots and lots of bonus prizes up for grabs at no additional entry fee!

Reservations:  Please email to reserve a spot.  You can prepay (not required) at the 'Prepaying' section of this website, or scan this QR code to use Venmo:    .  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% to a max of 24 bowlers advance to a matchplay bracket.  Format details may (very rarely) be adjusted any time up until event start time if space/time necessitates.    

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 counts for Arizona 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 Arizona points, plus anyone who had a top-4 finish in an Arizona event this season, advance to their respective Invitationals.

Entry fee: $60.  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.s

Dress code:  Anything goes EXCEPT tank tops, 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.
