Ten-pin bowling peer review[edit]

The article Ten-pin bowling is currently undergoing a peer review to bring it up to featured article status. As others who are interested in bowling, I invite you to leave your comments--Danaman5 04:04, 19 April 2006 (UTC)

Up to snuff![edit]

I believe we should try and get this page a little more organized, we can follow a model similar to the 10 pin. split it up into some sections for starters. as danaman said, a lot of good info here, i just think it needs to be organized a little better. Namtaru 8:26, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

The Youth Bowling School Concept[edit]

The Bowling School concept was created in 1986 by Tom Paterson. Tom Paterson is a recognized authority on the sport of Five Pin Bowling. Paterson (a school teacher/administrator) and is also a multiple national champion in singles and team competitions,a TSN Champion (2006) and the author of two books (circa 1980, 2000).

The school concept was born from an invitation to Alberta's Youth Camp in 1985. Alberta's camp continues to this day. The primary differentation between the camp concept of Alberta and the school concept divised by Paterson is the intentional focus on competitive readiness, and the blending of both on-lane "how to" instruction with classroom sessions that delve into the realm of Sport Psychology through the use of experts trained in the field.

The school consists of 3 - 4 days of intensive on lane instruction, and classroom learning. Each day involves 8 hours of instruction. The Saskatchewan School is typically held the 3rd weekend of August (Thurs-Sunday inclusive), and attracts participants nation wide. The school capacity is limited to the first 100 registrants, with the school filling to capacity usually by March.

The bowling school concept of Paterson has been carried forth by Paterson and is now offered in British Columbia (since 2002), Manitoba (since 1999) and Norther Ontario (since 2000). On a related side note Southern Ontario has intentionally copied the format and does ackowledge the source of the information.

Information on the Western schools can be found at the following sites; www.saskbowl.com, www.bowlbc.com, Manitoba contact; rossmerelanes@shaw.ca

Lacking sources[edit]

I have tagged this article as lacking sources. It has lots of good, detailed info here but no way to verify most of it. --Ds13 21:29, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

Typo?[edit]

Is the correct spelling of the machine chameleon or chamelion? Don't know enough about the subject to change this - but could someone verify?! Thanks. SkierRMH 08:03, 22 December 2006 (UTC)

picture[edit]

the picture used (boy bowling) isn't terribly good. This article is about 5 pin bowling, not a small boy. The focus of the picture is the boy and the pins themselves seem to be an after though. Only 1 lane even has all 5 pins in it. As such I don't think it does a terribly good job of actually illustrating the subject.--Crossmr (talk) 06:36, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

That looks like me in the 1960s.
Lane 22 has a full set of pins. All the other lanes are in use showing a popular, active bowling alley in operation. Not a US-style lane anywhere in sight.
The photo works fine for me. Young kids should be encouraged to play our game.

I agree with Crossmr. You can keep the picture of the kid if you want, but the point of having pictures in this article is to illustrate the sport, and it would work a lot better to have at least image one where the setup of the pins is clearly illustrated, up close if possible.

Confusing statement; photograph.[edit]

First, I found several places where the grammar is questionable, but this: ""Headpin" (denoted H on a score sheet): punching the headpin on the first ball. The most dreaded result on the first ball as a "headpin-spare" is extremely difficult to achieve."? What does that even mean. I don't know anything about bowling, and that part is incomprehensible to me. I can't tell if it's talking about a desirable thing or not. Next, the photograph at the top: it shows a kid bowling in what would be a highly unusual manner in tenpin bowling, but it doesn't say anything anywhere about proper bowling technique, nor does it say that his technique is IMproper. Are we to assume that since that's the image heading the article, that that is indeed the way in which one bowls the ball in five-pin bowling? Typically a photograph is chosen to represent a typical moment for a given sport/subject. If it's just showing some kid goofing off, the caption ought to make that clear. Likewise, if that is actually the proper way to bowl in five-pin, please clearly state so so a reader unfamiliar with the topic won't have to go away with more questions than when they arrived.

I see your point about the "headpin-spare" and have changed the text to add clarity. I don't have an alternative for the photo. PKT(alk) 18:08, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
