champs and finalists

        Brock Bivins and Caitlyn White captured JBT titles in exciting Mountain Conference action at Strike Gold Lanes at the Pojoaque Pueblo.

        Harper Schmidt began a run up the scratch division stepladder finals with a 256-206 win over Joshua Burnett.  He kept the strikes coming in a 237-165 win over John Green to reach the final.  Top seed Brock Bivins and Schmidt rolled good games in the final, but a tenth frame spare from Brock shut out Harper, and the 227-222 final was good for the sixth title of the reigning TPC champs' JBT career.

        In the handicap division, newcomer to JBT Caitlyn White put on a Houdini act to climb the ladder.  Needing 20 pins in the tenth to tie Mia Medina in game one, White doubled for a 212-205 win.  She then squeezed by Kendall Bollea 200-190, in a game that simultaneously counted as the Girls Scratch title game.  Top seed Seth Martinez had led the field almost all day with some terrific scoring, but the title match went back and forth.  This time needing twenty pins to win, White struck on the first ball, then spared a 10-pin for the 210-209 win, and first career JBT title.

        Schmidt was consoled earlier with the U17 win with a victory over Green.  Montana CdeBaca won the day's Ebonite ball, courtesy of our title sponsor.  Huge thanks to Ed Romero and his team at Strike Gold for making the weekend possible.  Want in on the fun?  Just check out our schedule and come on down!

Start Time: Saturday qualifying squad at Noon, one squad only.

Hotel: rooms available at Cities of Gold Casino (same location as the bowl, $69 King, $79 Double, 505-455-0515)

Re-entries?:  There's only one qualifying squad, so there are no re-entries this event..

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: Qualifying round is 5 games.  The top 40% bowl a 3 game semifinals.. The top 4 then do a stepladder finals.   

Divisions/ Averages:  Scratch or handicap.  It is the bowlers' choice of division.  Also, everyone age 16 or under as of 8/1/21 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.

Points:  This event counts for Mountain 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.  As the end of the season, the top 32 in Mountain points, plus anyone who had a top-4 finish in a Mountain event this season, advance to their respective Invitationals.

Entry fee: $50 handicap; $60 scratch.  Scholarship brackets are available for $2 each.  Raffle tickets for Ebonite bowling balls, and our PowerBowl and '26' jackpots, are available on-site. 

Covid details: JBT events follow- at least- all local Covid safety protocols, which you must be prepared for.   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 $300, $150, $100, $60.  In handicap, $250, $125, $75, $50.  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, 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.
