During each of our Prime events, MYST will host a raffle for a certificate for an item (items may include a bowling ball from the Brunswick line, Bowling Jersey, Gift Basket, etc).  Raffle entries are open to all individuals 18 years or older who are present by purchasing tickets.  Youth Standard and Elite Members will receive one or more entries into this same raffle at no charge based on your membership level.  Standard members may win only (one) 1 bowling ball certificate per season, Elite Members may win up to two (2).  *Individuals under the age of 18 are not permitted at any time to enter raffles where money is the prize.  Raffles designated for participants only will not include ticket sales.

Bring your spare game on!  The bowler in each division that has the highest percentage of spares made during the qualifying round of the tournament will earn a $5 SMART scholarship.  Percentage is calculated based on the total number of frames bowled during the qualifying round where a strike was not recorded and the frame resulted in a spare.  *These SMART awards are independent of the tournament’s payout schedule and are not funded through your entry fee.

Additional bonus SMART scholarships may be announced either in advance or the day of the tournament.  *Eligibility based on membership level (including non-members) will be determined by the individual or group that is funding the award.  These SMART awards are independent of the tournament’s payout schedule and are not funded through your entry fee.

To see current and past opportunities, please visit http://mystbowling.com/scholarships/

Elite Members who have already earned their Junior Gold 2022 spot are eligible to earn a $25 SMART award if they have the highest scratch series during the qualifying round of Prime tournaments.  Bowler’s Junior Gold division is based on the division offered by MYST for that tournament.  To see how divisions are created, please visit http://mystbowling.com/divisions/

Partnerships between MYST and other tours allows our member bowlers to experience their tournaments by waiving some costs for your first tournament.  Members of a reciprocating tour also enjoy these options when attending their first MYST tournament.  Terms and conditions apply, please contact the tour directly to learn more.
