JBT LAS VEGAS OPEN RULES
The tournament is open to all male and female bowlers who were 21 years of age or younger as of August 1, 2017. Current or former PBA members are not permitted to bowl.
The tournament entry fee is $90 per bowler for entries paid by July 26, 2018. Entry fee paid after July 26, 2018 is $100.
The tournament will consist of two divisions, scratch and handicap. Bowlers may choose to compete in either division. In the handicap division, 80% of the difference between the bowler's average and 200 will be added to each game.
There will be one scholarship prize awarded for each six participants in each division. The first place scholarship prize is guaranteed to be at least $1,000 in each division. Scholarship prizes may be claimed after the bowler has completed one semester of college with a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0. Prizes may also be used for trade schools and/or other continuing education after graduation from high school. All requests will be considered on an individual basis. Complete scholarship information and eligibility requirements is available on the Junior Bowlers Tour website (www.JBTBowling.com).
Proper dress and behavior is expected of all participants. Collared shirts are suggested. Shorts are permitted. Bowlers are NOT permitted to wear hats, tank tops, clothing with offensive language or graphics, or any apparel which the tournament director feels is inappropriate. Smoking is not permitted. Bowlers who use foul language, obscene gestures or abuse equipment will be subject to disqualification, as determined by the tournament director.
AVERAGES: Handicap division bowlers are to submit their highest final league average for 21 games or more for the 2017-18 season or the 2016-17 season, whichever is HIGHER. Bowlers with a Junior Bowlers Tour (JBT) average for 21 games or more in the 2017-18 season will use that average. All handicap division bowlers without a 21-game JBT average MUST submit final average verification (league standings sheet, average book, etc.) for the 2017-18 season. Bowlers without a league average for the 2017-18 season must bowl in the scratch division. Submission of incorrect average may result in disqualification from tournament and forfeiture of all prizes and entry fees. All bowlers are subject to the JBT average re-rating rules.
Match One: The sixteen finalists will be paired to form eight one-on-one matches (see below for pairing rules). The winner of each of these matches will advance to Match Two.
Match Two: The eight remaining bowlers will be paired to form four one-on-one matches. The winner of each match will advance to Match Three.
Match Three: The four remaining bowlers will be paired to form two one-on-one matches. The winner of each match will advance to the Championship Match.
Championship Match: The two remaining bowlers will bowl the final match to determine the champion
All rules not specifically covered will be governed by the rules of the Junior Bowlers Tour. The tournament director reserves all rights regarding all rules, assignment of averages and the operation of the tournament.
