Sorry Bowen, but age obviously has little to do with skill. Similarly that PAPA does not have female divisions... I was not accusing him of cheating. I was pointing out that he obviously had no business being in C and the PAPA system of restrictions (or lack of) is obviously flawed. I spoke with numerous C division players and when looking at the scores/ watching the play they all saw the obvious skill level of some C players which do not fit the PAPA defined C player.
I suggest updating the PAPA webpage if you think he was a fair player in C. You may also want to talk with your announcers on the PAPA TV webcast as they also acknowledged that he was sand bagging multiple times. It was a complete joke that he was playing in C as he obviously did not meet the definition>>>
From the PAPA page:
The C division is suitable for casual players, first-time competitors, and other novices. The B division is suitable for players with league or tournament experience, or anyone looking for a greater challenge and potential reward.
Based on both facts and the obvious skill he has, he did NOT meet the PAPA definition of a C player...
He is not a casual player, definately not a first time competitor, and definately not a novice.
59 total events, 3rd place in NW pinball championships, etc...
PAPA set up the flawed expectations of many truly casual players that were in C.
I do not blame him for taking advantage of the lack of restrictions, but at least either acknowledge that the system is flawed or the PAPA definition is wrong, because something does not fit...
