Saturday finalists; Sunday finalists
Over $3,400 in scholarships were awarded to youth bowlers of all ages and averages in exciting JBT Southwest Conference action at Cerbat Lanes in Kingman.
On Saturday, current TPC champ Matthew Garrett added another title to his collection with a title match victory over 16-time champ Cerell Cardines. The handicap division would see a first time winner, as top seed Seth Stovall played Jacob Ellis. Stovall dominated the day, but Ellis dominated the title match, coming through for JBT win #1. Emily Cheesman won the Girls Scratch subdivision, while Sebastian Huffman edged Cesar Padilla in what is looking to be a season-long battle in U17.
Sunday's scratch-only event was contested on one of the toughest patterns of the season, with a new twist on an old matchplay format- lower seeds needed more wins than higher seeds in order to advance. #5 Payton Workman out-performed his seed, beating #4 Zach Greim to be the only lower seed to advance to the final four, but #1 Lucas Rabb stopped him in the semifinal. #3 Josh Molloy upended #2 Cerell Cardines in the other semi to set up the title match. Two of the best shotmakers on Tour went at it in the final, but it was Molloy who came up with the brilliant game, firing 243 to earn his third career JBT title. Mackenzie Hammer had a breakout performance, finishing sixth in the tournament and sweeping the subdivisions, beating Cheesman for Girls Scratch and Elias O'Hollaren for U17.

Date: Saturday & Sunday November 21 & 22, 2020 (These are TWO separate one-day tournaments. You can bowl only Saturday, only Sunday, or both. Sunday's tournament is scratch-only, but bowlers who usually compete in handicap are welcome to 'give it a shot' in scratch.)
Start Time: Saturday qualifying is one squad only, at 11 AM. Sunday qualifying is one squad only, at 9:30 AM.
Re-entries?: There's only one qualifying squad for each event, so there are no re-entries.
Reservations: Please email firstname.lastname@example.org 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 three additional games. The top 4 then do a stepladder finals. Sunday: All bowlers roll 5 games in the qualifying round. The top 40% of each division, to a maximum of 16, advance to "TADOTAT"- head to head matchplay where in round one, higher seeds need 2 wins to advance, and lower seeds need 3 wins to advance! In round two, higher seeds need one win and lower seeds need two. Rounds 3 and 4 are single game matches. At least one female must advance to the top 16.
Divisions: 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.
Points: This event counts for Southwest 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 6 feet of social distancing from non-family members. Please stay posted so you're not surprised about anything required of you. We continue to ask that each bowler bring a MAX of one guest with them, to make distancing possible. If you can bring ZERO guests with you, that's ideal (yes we know not everyone can do that). Face coverings are required at all times from all bowlers and spectators.
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, JBT-logo shirts, 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.
PLEASE do not forget to contact us if you need to cancel or adjust your reservation.
