About MeRetired London Cop, main hobby is Tenpin Bowling Winner of three bowling Golds,...

This will be my last post on this site and hopefully will be read by those doing any sort of debrief in relation to the bowling and considered by those organising the wpfg2017 in Montreal.
This event suffered on so many levels
1..Lack of knowledge and experience of running a high level bowling tournament.
2..Failure to correctly place bowler in the correct divisions and age groups
even though they had been told either verbally or by email
3..Late notice of scheduling changes
4..Delayed start...

Craig Luecke Guys, I have an update for you regarding the results. Yes, they were incorrectly posted in the Fuse Sport results system which is displayed on our site. Our Deputy Sheriff assigned to the medals has received the corrected results and who will... Show more 2 years ago

just checked the record/result for the bowling.. the records cannot be trusted
The results shown for the Mens B Div Doubles are the same as the medal ceremony, which I challenged at the ceremony and was found in my favour.
I got my silver medal at the bowl at the time. I feel sorry for those who have to collate the results from the event coordinators, who are dealing with bad info and thus showing bad result page, on this website

Tiina Kauti I just keep looking my husband and his partners double results here.. Some one said to them that they were 12th but if you compare their score to Men A doubles results they should be 5th ( or 2nd in Men LOL! That's all I can do with you 2 years ago

After a decent sleep and thinking about what took place over the 3 days of bowling, a recurring theme was the coordinator not receiving emails asking questions, or trying to sort out errors in the scheduling . I sent an email direct to cpaf in April with the metropolitan London police lineups, partners for each event, and their averages . It was very clear, who was doing what and with who. I got a response that it had been forwarded to the coordinators. If that happened and it was read certain... Show more

I'm sorry to say that this games bowling was the worse run event I've been to. Poor scheduling , poor management of the event, poor recording of scores.
Wpfg need to sort this out.

Tiina Kauti Hello Alan.. do you know who are the real winner in each series? Because there is still tuesday results in showing. Are these also the FINAL results? 2 years ago

Alan Hanafin Tiina, an overall standing sheet was issued and posted in the alley, I would hope they post this and all the winners on this website. But due to the chaos at each of medal ceremonies, not sure how accurate those results would be. 2 years ago

They often state that the Olympics are the biggest sporting event in the world, normally have 9500 competitors. I would argue that, esp after New York games in 2011, who had 18,000 competitors.
How many have registered to compete at Fairfax so far

Alan Hanafin replied to Oil Pattern 2 years ago

I asked this question many months ago, was informed that a standard house pattern would be used. In the absence of recognised pattern, I would like to known the length of the oil in the standard house pattern, if that is what is used.

Have tried to change my initial registering, Website will not allow to easily change. Spent over an hour to try and get my submissions right, but the site will not allow me to change the Divisons that I now want to bowl in, due to changes in the makeup/averages of the Guys coming over from the UK.
Frustrating

Devin Reid Alan Hanafin You are going to want to email the federation about this issue. I attached the email below.

As bowlers are starting to sign up and maybe looking for partners / teams to compete in all sections of the competition. Can I make a suggestion, when submitting a post, apart from where you are from, also add the section you intend / wish to bowl in (Open, A, B, Grand Masters Divisions), also your expected average for the event.
This will allow those teams with openings to assess if you fit into their teams.

Nice to see a whole loads of photographers coming on board for the games, when you compete, you don't have time to think about recording images of old and new friends whilst competing. When one does, frankly most are only worthy of deletion.
Look forward to viewing these photos in the future. Hope to see a few of you at the bowling
