champs and finalists

            The tide was rising on a Sunday afternoon in St George, and in the end Andrew Guba and JT Verde avoided the surge and emerged as JBT champs, in terrific Mojave Conference action at Sunset Lanes.

            In 'rising tide', the lowest overall totals are eliminated game by game, faster and faster, until only one survives.  In the scratch division, Brandon Rother was all but washed away until a huge 279 game, by far the highest of the day on the very tough pattern, pushing him all the way to the title match.  Red-hot Andrew Guba awaited, though, and Rother still needed to make up 42 more pins in the total pinfall format.  Guba would not allow it, winning the final game straight up to complete the victory, and 7th title of his JBT career.

            In handicap, it was anyone's tournament heading into the penultimate game, where seven survivors would be cut down all the way to two.  JT Verde and hard-charging Nathanial Sample outlasted the others to reach the last game.  Sample had earned the 'lifeline' bonus by being the highest game in the field twice, and JT would now have to do the same, plus an extra eight pins, to overtake Sample's total pinfall.  Verde took a commanding lead with a mid-game string, but Sample came charging back in the late frames.  In the end, JT had just enough to hang on for the margin he needed, claiming his third career JBT title with the win. 

            Kendall Bollea earned herself a subdivision sweep, beating Katelyn Abigania for girls scratch, and stopping Manny Ferrell for U17.  Utah's Luke Brown won the day's ball from the brands of Brunswick, one of our great title sponsors.  Giant thanks to Jason and the team at Sunset and the fantastic restaurant crew, for the amazing job hosting our Tour for the first time!  Want in on all this fun for everyone?  Just check out our schedule and come on down!

THIS EVENT IS NEARING OR AT SELLOUT.  Please review the list below and contact us if your plans have changed, and email us as soon as possible if you would like to reserve a spot. 

Date: Sunday April 2, 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 9 AM.

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, or scan this QR code to use Venmo:    .  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 advance to round two, featuring our 'rising tide' format.  Format details may (very rarely) be adjusted any time up until event start time if space/time necessitates.   

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 Mojave 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.  As the end of the season, the top 32 in Mojave Conference points, plus anyone who had a top-4 finish in a Mojave Conference 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, 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.
