Ewan Oester, Danny Chalmers, Halie Martin, Tai Garrett
Ewan Oester made a little history, while Tai Garrett tasted victory for a third time, in terrific JBT Pacific Northwest Conference action at the spectacular Kingpins Beaverton.
Finalists advanced to a modified two-game stepladder, and in the scratch division, Oester emerged from a three way battle with Ashton Yamasaki and Cadin Cervine to advance. Top seed Michael Strothman was looking for a long awaited first career scratch title, and had his chance to claim it with a tenth frame double. On the challenging pattern, Michael didn't get the first hit, and a relieved Oester claimed the win, becoming the fourth twelve year-old in JBT history to win a scratch division singles title- wow!
In the handicap division, Tai Garrett escaped the three-way semifinal from Kierra Wilcox an Braidyn Bishop to move on and face Halie Martin for the title. Martin had been on fire since game four of the event, but appeared to be out of it in the late frames of the title match. Needing 6-0 to win the tournament, Tai somehow managed to do exactly that, turning it into a one-pin win, nonetheless good enough for the third title of his JBT career!
Martin's hot streak extended to the girls scratch final, where she beat her friend Mary Sicard for that win. Danny Chalmers won his first U17 subdivision event with a win over Oester, wearing the lucky charm Jakob Butturff shirt to do so.
Huge thanks to the team at Kingpins for a great job hosting our tour for the first time in this amazing facility. Any skill and any age can do this too- check out our schedule and come on down!

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.
