Welcome to the GISBT

Welcome to the official web site for the GISBT, a scratch bowling tournament held monthly, August through May, one Sunday of every month.


Former GISBT member Erin McCarthy, from Omaha, Nebraska, and current tour member A.J. Chapman, of Manchester, Iowa, were named as members of Team USA at the Team USA Trials competition held in Las Vegas, Nevada. Chapman, a 9-time GISBT champion, finished 3rd in a field of 175 of the best adult and youth competitors in the nation; the top 3 finishers were automatic qualifiers for Team USA. In 2009, Chapman was selected as a member of Junior Team USA at the National Junior Gold tournament, also held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Meanwhile, McCarthy, 24, finished 8th in a field of 118 adult and youth women competitors. She was selected by the National Selection committee to be a part of Team USA based on her overall performance in the event. McCarthy was a 13-time GISBT champion during her tour career, which ended in 2012.

Congratulations to Erin McCarthy and A.J. Chapman on this tremendous career achievement!
