champs and finalists

        Four bowlers earned JBT titles and over $4,200 in scholarships were awarded in tremendous JBT Southern California Conference action at Lakewood's Cal Bowl.

        Saturday's event featured stepladder finals in scratch and handicap, and two ladder-climbs from the #4 seeds.  In scratch, Elias O'Hollaren fired big games to roll past Gael Egana 258-212, and Sebastian Huffman 236-201 to reach the final.  Top seed Hunter Mayes struck a ton all day, but needed to keep it up against Elias.  He did so, running the front six, but O'Hollaren never quit, and when Mayes finished at 259, he found himself in a position to double to win.  Elias got the first hit, but a good second shot didn't carry, and Mayes had the thrilling 259-258 win in one of the year's best finals, good for his 12th career JBT title.

        Ethan Santos was simultaneously climbing the handicap stepladder, starting with a 222-217 win over Matt Wang, and following with a 232-191 victory over Hayden Wegner to reach the title match. Chase Simmons had he best event of his young JBT career to earn the top seed, and he consolidated it wit a win over Santos in the final, good for his first career JBT title.

        Sunday used a matchplay bracket format in both divisions.  In the scratch semifinals, Solomon Salama returned for a win over Daniel Hong, while Hunter Mayes continued his red hot streak, blasting 289 to rout Sebastian Huffman and set up a battle of two of our most decorated current bowlers.  The finale was controlled by Salama, and the resulting win was good for the 27th title of his outstanding career.  In handicap semifinals, Kaili Purugganan beat Jacob Lepore in a battle of league teammates, while Nathan Chambers beat Tyler Weitzman to set up the title match.  Kaili stayed in the lead in the finale, and her win was good for the first title of her JBT career.

        Avery Domaguin and Katelyn Abigania found themselves in a familiar position as Girls Scratch winners on the weekend, while the U17 events went to Sebastian Huffman and Daniel Hong.   Tans as always to Leonard and the team at Cal for making the event happen.  $4,202 in scholarships were earned by bowlers of all skill levels and ages- come on down to the nex JBT event to get in on the fun!

Date: Saturday & Sunday May 15 & 16  (These are TWO separate one-day singles tournaments.  You can bowl only Saturday, only Sunday, or both.)

Start Time: Saturday qualifying is at 8:30 AM.   Sunday qualifying is also at 8:30 AM. 

Re-entries?:  There is only one qualifying squad at each event, so there are no re-entries allowed at these events. 

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: These are two separate one day events.  Saturday, all bowlers roll 5 games in the qualifying round.  The top 40% of each division rolls two additional games.  The top 4 then do a stepladder finals.  Sunday, all bowlers roll 5 games in the first round.  The top 40% to a maximum of 16 bowlers per division advance to head to head matchplay, two game total pinfall in rounds of 16 and 8..

Divisions/ Averages:  Scratch or handicap.  It is the bowlers' choice of division.  Also, everyone age 16 or under as of 8/1/20 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.  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.   If you haven't bowled organized competition since shutdown last March, we likely need what your average was at that time.  If it was a USBC league that average should be on .  Otherwise, it might take some digging to track down your average- give yourself time to do so!

Points:  This event counts for So Cal Conference 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.

Entry fee: $40 handicap; $50 scratch.  Scholarship brackets are available for $2 each.  Raffle tickets for Ebonite bowling balls, and our PowerBowl and '25' jackpots, are available on-site. 

Covid details: JBT events follow- at least- all local Covid safety protocols, which you must be prepared for.  This will likely include but not be limited to wearing masks at all times, and maintaining social distancing from non-family members.  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 in scratch are $250, $125, $75, $50.  In handicap, $200, $100, $60, $40.  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 $2,000 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, about 95% of the bowlers do dress in the 'bonus' dress code, and those points become very important, so plan accordingly.


PLEASE do not forget to contact us if you need to cancel or adjust your reservation.
