Date: August 20, 2017
Place: Bayside Bowl, Portland, ME.

M.I.S.T. Bowlers and Fans,


Once again we have reached the time of year where we will crown the M.I.S.T. champion who will represent our tournament series in the 2018 USBC Masters. The 2017 M.I.S.T. “Master of the Lanes, presented by Bayside Bowl” will take place on August 20, 2017 at Bayside Bowl in Portland, ME. at 12:00 PM. Thank you to Charlie Mitchell from Bayside Bowl for allowing us to once again hold this event at this gorgeous facility, and for stepping up as the official sponsor. This tournament is exclusively for the top (10) bowlers on the season ending M.I.S.T. Bowler of the Year points list. There is NO COST to our bowlers, who will be competing for (1) single prize, a paid entry into the 2018 USBC Masters Tournament. Our bowlers worked hard all last season to make it into the top (10) on our points list, so I like to reward one bowler with the chance to represent the M.I.S.T. each year at the USBC Masters tournament. It will be the same format as last year, a best 2 out of 3 head to head match play event, where we will determine our champion through (4) rounds of matches. We want as many people in the crowd as possible, cheering on our bowlers from lane side, the mezzanine, wherever you can in the facility, as they try to become a M.I.S.T. Master of the Lanes Champion. We had over 170 different bowlers compete in the M.I.S.T. this past season, so let’s get a raucous environment for our bowlers to compete in. I KNOW that the bowlers and fans at Bayside can bring the noise, let’s have some serious crowd excitement for this event! It is FREE to attend, so let’s show some support for these great competitors, and for this gorgeous bowling center that Charlie Mitchell has brought to life here in the great state of Maine!


Here are the (10) bowlers who qualified for the tournament:


1. Joe Colcord (2017 M.I.S.T. Bowler of the Year)
2. Joe Ramsdell III
3. Valerie Bercier
4. John Bercier
5. Larry King
6. Brian Boghosian
7. Mike Klosin
8. Scott Moore
9. Stephen Dale Jr.
10. Jimmy Clark


The top (6) bowlers will receive a bye in the first round of the tournament. Bowlers 7-10 will face off head to head, with the matches going 10 vs. 7 and 9 vs. 8. Here are the first round match ups:


10. Jimmy Clark vs. 7. Mike Klosin
9. Stephen Dale Jr. vs. 8. Scott Moore


At the completion of the first round, the remaining (8) bowlers will compete head to head in our quarter final match ups to determine the final (4) that will advance to the semi-final round. The match ups will be determined by seeding, with the lowest seed remaining facing the highest seeded player. Here are the projected match ups for the quarter final round:


(Lowest Seed) vs. 1. Joe Colcord
(2nd Lowest Seed) vs. 2. Joe Ramsdell III
6. Brian Boghosian vs. 3. Valerie Bercier
5. Larry King vs. 4. John Bercier


At this point, we will be down to the final (4) bowlers competing in the semi-finals. The winners of those matches will face off, head to head, to determine the 2017 M.I.S.T. “Master of the Lanes, presented by Bayside Bowl” Champion, with the lowest remaining seeds facing the higher seeded players in each match. Thank you to each and every bowler who competed this season, and a special thanks to those who made our top (10) to earn a spot for this prestigious event. I know whoever wins will represent the M.I.S.T. well, and it would be a dream come true to see the USBC Masters title go to one of our own. See you all on the 20th of August at Bayside Bowl in Portland, ME., starting time is 12:00 PM, let’s have a great event


– James Goulding III, M.I.S.T. Tournament Director
