Detective work for finding old game results - WUGC 1998

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

The missing scores for Sunday’s (1st day, August 16th) and Thursday’s (5th day of tournament, August 20th) games in World Ultimate Championships in 1998 (Blaine, Minnesota) have been bothering me a lot. For some reason I do not have the tournament newsletters (hard copies) stored in anywhere (was there any newsletter in that tournament anyway?). The pages on WFDF site and from Internet Archive are missing results for those days. And as there are too many missing game results, one cannot even deduct the scores based pon the existing score information and the standings tables.
Finally yesterday I found a posting from rec.sport.disc containing scores for Thursday. Now it was suddenly possible to calculate the missing scores for Sunday’s games (as I did have Finland’s scores for open and women’s division, and Australia’s open team scores), right?
Well, not so fast. I was successful for open, and masters’ division. For mixed division I now know that USA won over Brazil and scored 17 goals, but the score for Brazil is unknown (something between 0 and 11 goals was best I was able to come up with). In women’s division there were too many missing games still - partly because the existing result sheets seem to be missing a few games for other days as well. Same story for juniors’ division as well.
So, the question is: Anyone out there reading this and knows some of the results I am still missing? Does anyone still have the tournament newsletters?
