Maine Invitational Scratch Tournament

James Goulding, III
Tournament Director


The M.I.S.T. is a scratch tournament established in the summer of 2009 to help bring scratch bowling back to northern Ne w England at a more affordable cost. It uses a point based system to determine the bowler of the year, as well as handing out cash prizes to at least 1:4 bowlers at each monthly stop. All M.I.S.T. events are USBC certified, helping to ensure that our bowlers get recognized for special achievements on the lanes. First place is guaranteed $200 based on 16 entries. Bowling is $45, with side pots and brackets available. We use step ladder style roll-offs for the top 4 scratch qualifiers to determine the champion at each monthly stop.

MIST bowlers, here is the ball we will be raffling off at the MIST tournament on February 17th at Spare Time Family Bowling Center in Brunswick, ME.

It is the Brunswick Meanstreak Brawler, release date is February 6th, so these are gonna sell like hit cakes. With its hybrid coverstock and rough buff finish, this is a very versatile ball that could become that "benchmark ball" we all look for.

Raffle chances will be 3 tickets for $5, with no limit to the number of entries. I would like to thank Brian Graham and Brunswick Bowling for supporting the MIST by donating a raffle ball to each monthly stop this season. Check out their full lineup here:
