AMF FIREBIRD LANES
champs Colt Jance, Jessica Curette, Bud Sicard, Mary Sicard
Bud Sicard and Jessica Curette claimed JBT titles in exciting Pacific Northwest Conference action at AMF Firebird Lanes in Salem.
Sicard made an exciting run up the scratch division stepladder, beginning with a 1920181 escape over Michael Strothman. Next up was Do Hoon Kwon, who has won many JBT titles on the same day as Bud, but has now made a successful move up to scratch. The 12 year-old is looking to break Ewan Oester's recent record for youngest ever scratch winner, but it will have to wait for another day as Bud won the game 232-190 to advance. Top seed Mac Kaurin was a familiar foe, as the friends off the lanes went at it again on the lanes for a championship. In a very well bowled match by both on a very demanding condition, Sicard came up with the 233-221 win for the sixth title of his JBT career.
The handicap stepladder featured an all-female cast, beginning with good friends Maddie Rowe and Shelby Unger facing off, with Shelby winning 195-183. Curette then stopped Unger 195-180 to reach the title match. Top seed Mackenzi Clark had taken the lead from Curette with a big last two games in round two, but Jessica was able to take it back with an excellent final game, winning the match for her second career JBT title.
Earlier, Mary Sicard escaped with a one-pin win over Mackenzi for the day's Girls Scratch title. Colt Jance came up with a big win over Bud to earn the U17 win. Jessica Holbrook won the day's Ebonite bowling ball, courtesy of our fantastic title sponsor. Huge thanks as always to Erik and the team at Firebird for all they do for our Tour and for bowling!

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.

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