Hi there,

I'm hoping that someone is still monitoring this page because it appears I'm being ignored each time I send emails inquiring about when I will be receiving my Gold Medal.

It's been 9 months since the conclusion of these games and I'm yet to receive my gold medal for B Division All Events where I placed 1st with a total pin-fall of 2676 across 15 games (178.40 average). I was told at the time that results were being finalized (due to Malaysia's misrepresentation of averages) and that I would...

Hey everyone - As the 2017 WPFG site is being prepared to deploy its community forum, I will post a few tidbits of information here regarding the upcoming Games in Montreal (I hope this is ok with you, Craig!) Yesterday, Montreal's Senior Director of Sites and Competitions sat down with our host lanes for the bowling event (Laurentian Lanes).

Hey everyone - As the 2017 WPFG site is being prepared to deploy its community forum, I will post a few tidbits of information here regarding the upcoming Games in Montreal  (I hope this is ok with you, Craig!)  Yesterday, Montreal's Senior Director of Sites and Competitions sat down with our host lanes for the bowling event (Laurentian Lanes).  <br /><br />There was much discussion about the history of the 'Games; specifically topics related to the bowling event.  Montreal's Senior Director has spent a lot of time reviewing the bowling venues of the last few 'Games.<br /><br />In addition to streamlining the process of proper bracketing and the medal ceremonies, there was discussion about adding 'side venues' to the bowling event: perhaps a bowling clinic conducted by pros (Laurentian Lanes is home to the Canadian Olympic Team's Head Coach Tyrel Rose among many other big name bowlers) and possibly a 'mini non sanctioned tournament' for friends and families of the competitors.  <br /><br />Please feel free to post any innovative suggestions or ideas that you would like to have forwarded to the Montreal committee regarding the bowling event... and looking forward to seeing you in Montreal!

Bob Magee Steve, it shows you had an 859 in Doubles (on the "singles" link, where it has everybody's scores for all events). My partner and I aren't listed in the Doubles standings either. I don't understand it either. 2 years ago

I paid for, and have receipts for events that according to the published results, my scores were not entered or recorded.
Without doubt, this was the most poorly organised event that I have ever attended.
I have organised a large international bowling event at the World Firefighter Games in 2008, and while I understand that problems can and will occur, everything that I witnessed was completely avoidable.
The most disappointing thing was the complete, and continued, refusal of the event...

I agree with all....poorest run tournament I've ever been associated with...as for me ended up bowling 10 games on the same pair of lanes...couldn't figure that one out...and hardly any photos of teams or individuals that did medal....and scores that aren't posted correctly...hopefully they'll figure it out....Someday

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...

Well it's been 4 days and like all the posts say no one stepping up to the plate, I see "Administrator" (Craig Lucke?) says he is busy with 60,000 pictures...what is more important having someone in an Official capacity contact us and explain why the medals are so messed up or posting pictures, which by the way I have yet to see any from bowling venue. I also stated my doubles team was in 2nd in "A" as they were giving them out and then they only post 2 teams in Final Results, and of course my... Show more

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

The thing that is annoying most at the moment is the lack of response from the local sport co-ordinators and the games co-ordinators having emailed both I have not even had an acknowledgement never mind a response I fear this will end up with the sports governing body

Lamont Robinson I was in open singles and stayed around for the medal ceremony because I was 2nd after the first singles shift. I didn't medal so I thought all was good. Someone overtook me. But now I look on the website and see I am in 3rd place. I have emailed... Show more 2 years ago

I have been in the WPFG since the International Police Olympics folded and I can say that the Bowlers are getting the shaft. I can go on and on about how, but I will just state the obvious...Medals...It took six months for me to get my Belfast one. The Federation has taken control of the sport and put pressure on the coordinator. The only games that went well with the medals was 2011NYC because the person running it has had extensive experience with tournaments. The federation needs to let the... Show more

This was my first games and I have made some great new friends. I will be at Montreal and already looking forward to it.

I am totally amazed though at the shambolic attempt at scoring and the subsequent medal ceremony (or lack of it). I travelled thousands of miles and as many hard earned pounds to be here - this part was awful and I would expect to see some sort of explanation very soon?

Phil Arrowsmith Sometimes I think people fail to realise how much it costs in air fares and hotels for us to compete in these games with little or no help from our agencies the least you would expect is the organisation to be able to cope they have had 2 years to... Show more 2 years ago

omitted from the open division doubles, Mark Lapinski and Jeff Martin. 932 and 1056 for 1988. 4th? It's a shame that the real winners on day 3 were all the people who knew they had no chance of medaling. They were able to leave and avoided the misery of too many hours waiting around the bowling alley for results that were botched. Ugh!

Phil Arrowsmith I totally agree with Mark's sentiments we were one of the unfortunate ones that were at the centre from 7am to the shambles at the end at 10pm awaiting a medal when the rest of medal ceremonies were cancelled and now the results for the Masters All... Show more 2 years ago

Well, I've been quiet here, but I need to vent. This was my 5th WPFG Bowling event. I thoroughly enjoy the competition and camaraderie.

In regards to possible average falsification, that would lie on the governing bodies stated in the rules (FIQ, and the WPFG Federation). The thing that really has me miffed is that at least one competitor was re rated into another division after he bowled a few games. While on the surface some believe this is correct, it is totally incorrect- these decisions...

It gets even better just scanned through the updated results posted online and the bronze medal we won with a score 300 pins more than the team shown in 2nd place doesn't exist as for the gold winning Aussies forget it they were never there.

The results that have just been added to the results website have omitted the results for the Masters All Events for all groups is this likely to be amended in the near future
