I don't see how the junior member could be upset, afterall, he got the junior prize, "as advertised". The only person who should have been upset was the persop who thinks they should have won.
At the end of the day, the bowling place was responsible for the printouts and the naming of the winner ....... surely Stormforce cannot be held responsible for their mistakes.
I agree that if Carol responded with "tough" then she is wrong (I also find this to be highly unlikely) What would you rather have Carol do .... stop all the proceedings and retrieve the trophy from the official winner and present it again to your friend, or come up with another solution, for example, getting a replica trophy?
Also, whilst I'm on my soap box, it is very easy to sit there and critisize the stormforce committee, a little encouragement and offer of help probably wouldn't go a miss.
I organise events like this for a living, and I can tell you, when you are reliying on others such as the officials at the bowling alley for their input, as well as managing the time and whereabouts of 200 people, life can get pretty hectic, and sometimes things go wrong. Should I then be sacked from my job, despite the 99% of other more complex events I have run and that have all gone perfectly?
I think it's time you stopped this crusade you seem to have developed against stormforce and started doing something more positive.
