Josh Abigania, Seth Stovall, Kamryn Wyman, Mackenzie Theophilus

        Josh Abigania and Kamryn Wyman continued red-hot starts to the new season, winning JBT titles at Bowlero Via Linda in exciting Arizona Conference action.

        After qualifying, bowlers competed in 'pick your poison' matchplay, where higher seeded bowlers got to choose who they wanted to play in their matches.  This worked well for top seed Allex Zieg, until he got to Seth Stovall in the semifinals, who entered as the 15 seed but defeated Allex to move on to his first career scratch title match.  He would face Abigania, as the tough Californian stopped Arizona veteran Josh Molloy to reach another final.  Josh remained consistent and gave Seth no chance to catch up in the match, and his eventual win was good for a sweep of the weekend and third career JBT title for the talented teenager, while Stovall's career-best finish is a sign of good things to come for him.

        Wyman, the only guy in the final eight, beat two-time defending All-Conference Bowler of the Year Kendall Bollea in his semifinal match, while Vikki Walker won the other semifinal in a low scoring game over Joanna Molloy to advance to the final game.  Molloy was upset at first, but after finding out she finished higher than big brother Josh did, all was well.  In the final, Kamryn stayed in control, and was able to finish off the game and earn his first career JBT title (he has yet to finish out of the top five).  He also primarily used the same ball his dad Matt Jones threw in 1999 to roll the first title match 300 game in JBT history- wow!  Walker's runner-up finish was the high of her JBT career.

        Abigania also swept the weekend's U17 events, this time beating Cesar Padilla.  In an all-Mackenzie battle, Ms. Theophilus beat Ms. Paige for the Girls Scratch win.

        As always, huge thanks to the team at Via Linda for a fantastic hosting job.  Want in on all this fun?  Just check out our schedule and website, and come on down!

Date: Sunday October 10  (This is ONE tournament that is one day long. Sunday is a separate one day event.  You can bowl only Saturday, only Sunday, or both).  

Start Time: Sunday qualifying squad at Noon, 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% to a maximum of 16 advance to 'pick your poison' matchplay   

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 Arizona 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.  At the end of the season, the top 32 in Arizona points, plus anyone who had a top-4 finish in an Arizona JBT event this season, advance to the Invitational.  Bowlers who finish in the top 20 in Arizona points, or the top 100 in all-conference points, qualify for the Touring Players Championship, featuring $2,000 for first.

Entry fee: $50 handicap; $60 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.   Please stay posted so you're not surprised about anything required of you. 

Outside food/beverage:  One of the ways we negotiate reduced linage for tournaments is the anticipation of food and beverage sales.  So, please refrain from bringing outside food and beverage into the center.  Bringing in a Starbucks in the early morning before the restaurant opens is one thing, and sometimes no problem.  Laying out a full spread from Texas Roadhouse is quite another.  Some centers will strictly enforce the food/bev policy- please don't be offended, and please don't ignore their requests, so we can continue to visit our great host centers.

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.
