STRIKE ZONE at Sunset Station

champs and finalists

        Las Vegans picked up JBT titles to defend their home turf in exciting JBT Mojave Conference action at Strike Zone in Henderson, site of the upcoming 2022 Touring Players' Championship.

        It was all Arizonans in the scratch stepladder finals prior to the title game, with Madison Holman continuing her hot streak with a 224-210 win over Cesar Padilla in round one.  All-Conference points leader Hunter Mayes then stopped Holman 236-187 to advance to the title match.

        McGowan led the high scoring field with a strong semifinal set.  Mayes was looking for revenge after a loss in Laughlin to McGowan last month, but instead found deja vu all over again, as Hunter lost his look and his composure while Skyler just kept firing strikes.  He stayed in control for the win, the sixth title of his JBT career.

        All four handicap finalists are working hard on their games and were able to perform way over average all day, and kept right on going in the stepladder.  Devin Montoya began things with a 282-207 win over Gyrus Alo.  JBT newcomer Chad Gali then turned the tables on Montoya 270-229 to reach the title game.  Top seed Noel Gregorich waited there, with a title in her pocket this season already, but could not maintain the torrid pace she had set all day in leading all eight games.  Gali took advantage and his 256 was plenty for the win and first career JBT title.

        Emily Schrider beat Holman for her first Girls Scratch win, while Padilla kept rolling in U17 with a win over Tyler Castronova, who received his JBT 300 ring for his previous perfecto.  Avery Domaguin won the day's ball from our title sponsor Ebonite, and over $1,500 in scholarships were awarded to all skill levels and ages.  Want in on the fun?  Check out our schedule and come on down!

Date: Saturday March 12, 2022  (This is ONE tournament that is one day long. Sunday is a separate one day event.  You can bowl only Sunday, only Saturday, or both).  

Start Time: Saturday qualifying squad at 10 AM, one squad only.

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 Mojave 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 Mojave points, plus anyone who had a top-4 finish in a Mojave 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: As of late January, Strike Zone is limited on moving lanes and requires masks by all at all times.  Stay tuned for any changes to these protocols before the event date.  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.
