Andrew Cain, three-time member of Team USA (2002, 2003, 2005) and member of Junior Team USA in 2001, was re-elected as President of the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) and its Board of Directors. As well, Frank Wilkinson of Staten Island, N.Y., will serve as vice president of USBC for the 2013-2014 season. Cain, a long-time bowler and Wilkinson, owner of Rab’s Country Lanes will both be starting new, three-year terms with the USBC Board, however the positions of President and Vice President are for only one-year.
“I appreciate the confidence and support of the board, and I am excited to serve another year,” Cain told Bowl.com.
“USBC will be moving forward and embracing change as we strive toward our vision of being the leading authority servicing the needs of bowling as a more effective governing body. The strategy and decisions ahead will be driven by a focus to protect and nurture our sport, so bowling has a vibrant future with more people inspired to participate.”
