Andrew Cain is Re-elected USBC President


By Jason Overstreet USBC ARLINGTON, Texas - The United States Bowling Congress Board of Directors has re-elected Andrew Cain of Phoenix as USBC president. Tom Bluth of Davie, Fla. was re-elected vice president following his reappointment as a director-at-large. I am excited and honored to have the opportunity to continue as president of USBC, Cain said. USBC needs to bring forward a clear, illustrated plan for growth and my goal is to inspire our delegates and associations to support the organization once we fully develop the elements of that plan. Cain has served on the USBC Board of Directors since 2007 and has worked on many key committees including Legal and Legislative, Finance, and Equipment Specifications. Cain, who owns a small wholesale business, graduated from Arizona State with a degree in justice studies. A bowler since age 6, Cain rolled his first 300 game at age 12, was a member of Team USA in 2002, 2003 and 2005 and was a member of Junior Team USA in 2001. He has won nearly a dozen medals in international competition, and most recently was a member of the Team All-Events champions at the 2011 USBC Open Championships. I heard a clear message at convention that our member delegates want to be engaged and informed about USBCs plans and specific needs, Cain said. USBC needs to grow and needs to be bold while reengaging with the grassroots of our membership. I value our history and am eager to work toward helping bridge the generation gap so we can more effectively bring new bowlers into our sport. Bluth is an attorney and certified public accountant. He earned a bachelors degree in business administration as well as advanced degrees in law (J.D. and LL.M.) from Washington University in St. Louis. The board also reappointed Perry Daniels of Carrollton, Texas, as a director-at-large. Daniels is a member of The National Bowling Association and has held TNBA leadership positions such as local senate president, member of the Constitution Committee, Southern regional tournament director, national president, national king, national life member and marketing director. Dan Patterson of Phoenix will join the board Aug. 1 as a new athlete representative. Patterson was elected to fill the position currently held by Vernon Peterson. Patterson is a threetime member of Team USA. He won the 2006 U.S. Amateur Championship and was part of the gold-medal winning team at the 2006 Mens World Championships.

"Imagination is more important than knowledge."--ALBERT EINSTEIN (Any top bowler will agree that the mental side of the game is at least 80 percent.) "Trifles make perfection---and perfection is no trifle."--MICHAELANGELO (That's why pros practice the little parts of their game for hours on end.) "The true way to soften one's troubles is to solace those of others."----de MAINTENON (In other words, take the time to listen to another bowler's troubles, and if you talk to enough, you'll always find someone worse off than you are.) "Trust in God, and keep your powder dry."---CROMWELL (Pray, but make sure you're throwing a good ball first.) "Tis strange---but true; for truth is always strange, Stranger than fiction."--BYRON (Now start believing some of those stories other bowlers tell you, or attend a meeting of a ladies bowling league.) The winds and waves are always on the side of ablest navigators.---EDWARD GIBBON (And so it is that the first thing a bowler must learn is how to adjust to varying lane conditions) Practice courtesy. You never know when it might become popular again.---BILL COPELAND (Do it in bowling all the time and your opponent will become flustered and confused) What is defeat? Nothing but education, nothing but the first step to something better.--WENDELL PHILLIPS (When you lose, there is nowhere to go but up, and that fits most bowlers because there will always be so many more losers than winners) Nobodys perfect, and Im the perfect example.---SUZY SUTTON (Could have swore Marshall Holman said that) A vacation is what you take when you can no longer take what youve been taking.--EARL WILSON (And its what you do when youre in such a bad slump that you count splits and misses in your sleep when youre supposed to be adding up strikes and spares) If all the year were playing holidays, to sport would be as tedious as work.---SHAKESPEARE (A good argument to cut down on some of those long league schedules) Theres a funny thing about trouble. It starts out as being fun.---NONNEE COAN (And so do bowling troubles) As there are misanthropists or haters of men, so also are there misologists, or haters of ideas.---PLATO (Youve met them, there are a few at every type of bowling meeting) If you can meet with triumph and disaster, and treat those two imposters just the samethen you are a man, my son.---RUDYARD KIPLING (And, man or woman, if you can do just that, youre a bowlers bowler)

2012 PBA World Series of Bowling Returns to South Point in Las Vegas
Fourth annual multi-event international competition set for November 2-11
LAS VEGAS South Point Bowling Center in Las Vegas will host the fourth annual Professional Bowlers Association World Series of Bowling, a multi-event international competition, Nov. 2-11, that will kick off the 2012-13 PBA Tour season. The 2012 World Series of Bowling, the third consecutive hosted by South Point, will feature four PBA animal pattern championships and conclude with the PBA World Championship. The package of events also will include six ESPN television events, plus the 2012 WTBA World Bowling Tour Finals presented by the PBA. Two PBA Regional special events also are in the preliminary planning stage. Since its inception in 2009, the PBA World Series has evolved into the true world showcase for bowling that we hoped it would become, Tom Clark said. Our newly-adopted relationships with the World Tenpin Bowling Association to expand PBA competition around the world will only enhance the drama that will unfold when we return to South Point in November. World Series IV is going to be fun. The World Series, which last year attracted more than 200 players from a record 15 different countries, will get underway with an open practice session on Friday, Nov. 2. Over the next four days, competitors will bowl eight-game qualifying sessions in the Cheetah, Viper, Chameleon and Scorpion Opens, respectively. At the conclusion of each daily qualifying round, the top 16 players will advance to an additional six-game qualifying session to determine the four players who will advance to the ESPN eliminator finals. Combined 32-game pinfall from the four animal pattern events also will serve as qualifying scores for the PBA World Championship. The top 24 after 32 games will advance to round robin match play on Nov. 7 and 8. After 24 additional games of match play, the top eight players will advance to an eight-player stepladder final. Television finals for delayed telecast on ESPN will be conducted on specially-installed lanes in an exhibition hall at South Casino and Hotel. The preliminary schedule calls for the WTBA World Bowling Tour Mens and Womens Finals, Cheetah Open and Viper Open finals to be conducted on Saturday, Nov. 10, with the Scorpion Open, Chameleon Open and PBA World Championship stepladder finals (in two sessions) to be conducted on Sunday, Nov. 11.
