champs and finalists

        Xaden Todacheenie and Tyler Close claimed impressive victories in exciting JBT Mountain Conference action at Coal Creek Lanes in Lafayette.

        Phoenix Chavez began a climb up the scratch division stepladder finals with a 238-218 win over Texan Carlos Estrada.  In a close semifinal match, Phoenix got by Clayton Hobbs to advance to the title match.  Tyler Close grabbed the top seed in a tiebreaker over Hobbs, and took advantage of the #1 spot by starting the title match with the front six, building an insurmountable lead which ended in a 244-184 win and a long-awaited first career JBT title. 

        9 year-old newcomer Miles Namvong began an impressive climb up the handicap stepladder with a 260-233 win over Jordan Wisthoff.  Miles then rolled past Isaac John 221-187 to reach the title game.  Top seed Xaden Todacheenie had a few big games throughout the day, but saved his biggest for last, blasting a 240 scratch game to overcome Namvong's excellent effort and capture the third title of his JBT career.

        Hobbs also captured the event's U17 subdivision with an earlier win over Close, while Kinzie Temple beat her friend Katie Perez for the Girls Scratch victory.  Bryce Lee, a champ last season, made a thrilling run at the PowerBowl jackpot, calling 4 then 7 correctly before missing on the last shot, good for a $100 scholarship bonus.  Joshua Ruehlen won the day's ball from the Brands of Brunswick, our co-title sponsor along with IAM Bowling.

        $2,412 in scholarships were awarded to all ages and sill levels, with all finalists qualifying for the 2023 Mountain Invitational, featuring $1,000 top scholarship prizes, and helping their way towards the Touring Players Championship, with $2,500 on top.  Huge thanks to the great team at Coal Creek for a fantastic job hosting us for the first time.  Want in on all this fun?  Just check out our schedule and come on down to the next JBT event!

Date: Saturday January 14, 2023  (This is ONE tournament that is one day long, open to anyone age 21 & under as of 8/1/22). 

Start Time: Bowling begins at 1 PM.

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 8/1/22 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.  If you don't have 15+ games in any organized competition this season, we need your finishing 21-22 average, and any 2022 summer averages.  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: $60.  Scholarship brackets are available for $2 each.  Raffle tickets for Ebonite bowling balls, and our PowerBowl and '27' jackpots, are available on-site. 

Sponsor Incentive bonuses:  1) IAM Bowling: Bowlers making the final match of an event (scratch or handicap) wearing an IAM patch (good), any IAM shirt (better), or an IAM JBT shirt (best) earn point bonuses towards a $5,000 IAM incentive jackpot.  (The IAM patch is requested to be worn by all bowlers).   2) Virtue Bowling: Bowlers making the final match of an event (scratch or handicap, win or lose), using a Virtue Bowling shirt or patch, and a Virtue drilled ball, earn a $25 Virtue gift card.  

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 are $300, $150, $100, $60.  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 $2,500 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.


This reservation is an expectation that you will be bowling.  PLEASE do not forget to contact us if you need to cancel or adjust your reservation.  Repeated 'no-shows' may result in you not being able to reserve a spot.  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.
