-          You either enter in the YNMO, or the adult NMO (a $240 entry fee), not both, though you will be qualifying at the same time and on the same lanes.  Rules of and any prizes won in the adult NMO are separate from JBT and awarded as scholarships.

-          Early entry is strongly recommended, as this event nears sellout every year.  The big savings of bowling Friday is strongly suggested!
