3. The City of Limassol

The south coast town of Limassol is the island's largest seaside resort. Acting as a magnificent backdrop to the city that spreads for ten miles along the coast are the Troodos Mountains, in whose fertile foothills most of the country's grapes are grown. Limassol is the second largest city of Cyprus, with a population of 300.000 and is the centre of the wine-making industry and an important commercial and tourist centre.

The town's carefree holiday atmosphere, with wide seafront promenade and bustling little shopping streets, is matched by the vivacity and energetic character of its people. With its fun-loving reputation and the best nightlife on the island it is fitting that only Limassol stages some of the Islands best-known festivals: the annual Wine Festival in September, when the various wineries offer free samples of their products for ten days: the ten day pre-Lenten Carnival with masquerade parties balls and grand parades, the Limassol Festival in summer and the ancient Drama Festival at Kourion.

Concentrated chiefly on the eastern side of Limassol, all types of holiday accommodation have been built close to the sea. These range from luxury hotels to apartments and villas. Near them are a wide range of taverns pubs, discos and nightclubs. There are numerous beaches to choose from. Some very popular during midsummer with the convenience of changing rooms, showers, cafes and bars, others quite uncrowded, particularly those on the outskirts of town, such as the sandy beach known as "Ladies Mile' west of the new harbour. Limassol also has an attractive, newly-completed marina equipped with every facility for the yachtsman.

As a shopping centre Limassol offers the full range from ultra-modern to traditional and handmade. European wares also have a place alongside local produce and, as in other parts of the island, shoes and clothes can be made to measure in a matter of days. Busy St Andrews Street, not far from the seafront promenade, makes a fascinating trip with its quaint buildings and overhanging terraces, under which are an abundance of small shops. Another important shopping street is Makarios Avenue, where many prestigious boutiques and showrooms are located, as well as small shops of every type.

A tour to one of the wineries can easily be arranged in order to witness production and taste the final product. Down near the old port is Limassol Castle, where Richard the Lion heart allegedly married Queen Berengaria of Navarre in 1191 and crowned her Queen of England - the first Coronation and Royal Marriage to take place outside England. Its grounds house the Medieval Museum of Cyprus with interesting pottery and tombstones amongst its numerous exhibits. Limassol also has an Archaeological Museum, with fascinating statues and pottery finds the municipal Art gallery as well as a Folk Art Museum where specially staged room-sets display old clothes and utensils at their best. The Municipal Gardens with its small zoo also offers a pleasant stroll.

Limassol enjoys a rather temperate climate all year round, making travel to the area generally pleasant and comfortable.The temperatures in September are around 30 degrees Celsius or even higher, so be prepared with appropriate clothing and shoes.

4. Galactica Bowling Centre

4.1 History

The Championship will be played in 24-lane Galactica Bowling Center.

The 2 floor center (12 + 12 lanes) was built in 2007 and since then has hosted all the major events of the Cyprus Bowling Federation. It is also the venue of the Navigators cup.

4.2 Facilities

The centre is divided in three floors, with restaurant and entertainment facilities on the ground floor, reception, 12 lanes, Pro-shop, dressing rooms and caf on the first floor and reception, 12 lanes, dressing rooms, meeting rooms and caf on the second floor.

The center will also turn different spaces into various function rooms during the WSC 2012, such as press area, VIP lounge and secretariat.

4.3 Food and drink possibilities

The restaurant on the ground floor, as well as the caf on the 1st and 2nd floors, will offer various hot meals as well as sandwiches, snack food, drinks and coffee during the championships.

Both the cafs and the restaurant will be open in the morning and until a suitable time after the last squad each day.

Since it is our experience that many teams usually carry water, fruit and chocolate from various stores to the competition venue, such items will be offered at the centre, at reasonable prices, to assist team officials and to avoid the need for individual storage spaces in the centre.

The online list may be found at WTBA website - www.worldtenpinbowling.com

Given that the online ball list was created on January 1, 1991 any bowling ball not on the list and proven to be manufactured prior to January 1, 1991 have been previously approved.

A complete hard copy of the USBC approved ball list will be made available at the ball registration desk.

Acceptance of manufactured balls prior to the inception of the USBC ball list for use in competition is at the discretion of the Tournament Committee

7.1.2 Altering the surface of the bowling ball is allowed per rule 4.10.1.

 During a stepladder final format, each match is considered a competition round.

7.1.3 All balls used during competition shall be inspected and documented. The inspection shall be limited to a) Eligibility of the ball b) Serial number c) Weight and balance d) Number of balls.

7.1.4 Registration bowling balls

a) Each player will be permitted to register a maximum of 6 bowling balls during the tournament.

b) Immediately following the official practice (latest one hour after the last practice session) registration shall be made of the bowling balls to be used during the championship events.

c) Additions of maximum two bowling balls to the players bowling ball list shall be allowed (up to the maximum of 6) throughout the tournament provided they pass rule 4.11.3 above.

d) Additions to a players bowling ball list shall be made no later than 1 hour prior to the start of the squad where the additional bowling ball(s) will be used

e) In very special circumstances the Tournament Technical Committee may allow a replacement of a registered bowling ball.

7.1.5 Each day during the events random inspection of the bowling balls may be performed. The Tournament Technical Committee shall decide on the number of balls and the players, which shall be randomly selected. The inspection shall be limited to a visual inspection of the serial number of the balls and any modifications.

7.1.6 The penalties for violation of the rule are a) Daily random inspection, zero score for the event in which the failed inspection was performed b) Medalists, zero score for the event c) Masters Finals, disqualification and all scores null and void

7.1.7 A maximum of five gripping holes are allowed in a bowling ball. The player must be able to reach each set of finger holes (not all four simultaneously) while using the thumb hole. Any hole, which cannot be reached, is considered a balance hole. The ball must be balanced twice when one set of finger holes are for fingertip and the other set for conventional grip.

7.1.8 When delivering the ball the player must have his/her thumb in or over the thumb hole. It may not be 180 degrees away from the thumb hole

It is not permissible to use resin/powder products anywhere outside of designated area in any WTBA event. The tournament manager shall/will designate such an area

7.2 Bowling ball, altering surface

7.2.1 Bowling ball surface adjustments by hand are acceptable between games provided they are done in the designated area and that the adjustment procedure does not delay the bowlers next turn. Any use of chemicals must be on the Acceptable list as listed on WTBA website; www.worldtenpinbowling.com. A full, up to date list of these products is available at WTBA website includes anything listed in the "Acceptable during certified competition" sections. It is not allowed to use anything listed in the "Products Containing Solids or Abrasives" section nor anything listed in the "Not acceptable at any time" sections. The ball must be wiped clean after any adjustments.

7.2.2 Altering the surface of the bowling ball, besides what is mentioned in 4.10.1, is allowed in a designated area only during the official practice session, during the practice session immediately preceding a competition round, and between competition rounds.

Altering the surface of the bowling ball during a game is not allowed. If the surface is adjusted during a game the penalty is zero pinfall in that game

7.3 The ball store

Ball Park in the bowling centre will be used to store the equipment.

There will be an easy and short distance from Ball Park to the lanes.

7.4 Other kind of articles

Often teams are carrying various tools and other goods belonging to their group while they are in the centre.

We kindly ask you not to store such items in the press area, since we will prepare the room to be used by the press representatives solely.

We will provide you with enough space in the ball store room to store other items, than just bags and balls, related to your teams. The room will furthermore always be guarded.

8. Result presentations

The latest technology will be in use both for the present press officials and in relation to accumulation and presentation of scores and standings.

All games will be recorded in a database system, stored by a connection directly to the score system, in other words no re-typing of results will take place.

This technique allows us to offer a row of results service facilities - in all situations with a presentation shortly after the conclusion of each game - such as:

Squad standings at the mid screens after the conclusion of each game

Event standings at the mid screens at the conclusion of each squad

Automatically uploads of all games and standings to the Internet shortly after the conclusion of each game

Presentation on various screens and monitors centrally situated in the centre.

The official WSC 2012 Website - www.cbf.com.cy - will be in use for the result presentations as well as all other information related to the championships.

A completed list of results will be available at www.cbf.com.cy soon after the conclusion of the Championships.

9. Press facilities

9.1 Services

One meeting room will be used for the press activities. We expect to be able to provide space and capacity for about 30 press representatives in the room.

The laptops of all press representatives will be connected through the internal server, either wireless or through cables.

The use of the line for Internet communication is free of charge and the same goes for outgoing faxes, the use of printers and a phone for internal use in the centre. Concerning external phone communication we do expect the press representatives to use their own mobiles.

Extra cables for PDS plugs and extra electricity extensions will be available in the centre.

9.2 Press conferences

A press conference will be held in the press area after the conclusion of each day.

Other minor interviews with individual players will be allowed in the press area, but we intend to keep this to the minimum for the sake of all working in the room.

9.3. Restrictions

With the exception of the press conferences and some interviews, the access to the press room will be strictly restricted. Entry allowed only to those with press cards controlled by an observer, to ensure calm surroundings and professional working conditions for the press.

9.4. Refreshments for the press

A refreshment service in form of coffee, tea and drinks will be available for all accredited press officials in a nearby situated VIP Lounge - free of charge.

10. Other facilities

10.1. VIP lounge

During the duration of the WSC 2012, a VIP Lounge will be available for important guests, sponsors, presidium members, federation presidents, accredited press officials and other invited guests. The access to the VIP lounge will be restricted by entry cards controlled by an observer.

In the VIP lounge refreshments such as coffee, tea and cold drinks will be served to our guests free of charge.

10.2. Dressing rooms

Normally there is a very little, sometimes no need for dressing rooms during championships, since the players are changing to their playing uniforms at the hotel. But should there be a need, a room will be available.

11. When and where to play

11.1 Assignment method

Despite having entry information, from previous experience we know that sometimes the number of players and/or even the number of teams may not arrive due to unforeseen circumstances therefore we are unable to know the exact numbers to be expected. As a consequence preliminary made draws for lane assignments must be redone and all distributed material must be thrown away and new copies made.

The method used during the WSC 2012 will therefore be that no draw will be made until the end of the registration, which will provide us with the exact number of players before the draw is made and no repetition of the procedure will be needed.

The draw will be carried through by the Championship Committee.

11.2 Squad assignments

The countries will be assigned to squads by the Championship Committee.

The exact number of squads will depend on the number of players and the presented schedule in chapter 1 of this bulletin may therefore be changed slightly.

11.3 Lane assignments

The draw for the lane assignment in each squad will be done randomly by the Championship Committee.

12. Various information

12.1 Format

The WSC format will be as follows:

A. Each member federation will be entitled to enter a maximum of two men and two women.

B. Each athlete will bowl 12 qualifying games in two 6-game blocks.

C. After qualification, the top 24 men and women, by total pinfall, will participate in single elimination matches.

D. The top eight men and women will receive a first round bye.

E. The remaining sixteen will bowl head-to-head, the winners being the first to win three games. These bowlers will be ranked in a bracket format (1-16, 2-15, etc.).

F. The eight winners will bowl the eight byes in similar matches, bracket format, which will continue until a winner is determined. Two bronze medals will be distributed in each gender, to the losers in the semifinal matches.

G. All games will be played on one condition.

For WSC the player must have reached the age of 15 years on 1 January in the year of the championship.

12.2 Bus service

There are two (2) International Airports in Cyprus: Paphos International Airport and Larnaca International Airport - ONLY.
