Up Front ANDREW CAIN L


ike Sean Rash, USBC President Andrew Cain’s days as a youth bowler involve memories of packing up and heading off to the 106-lane bowling center inside the Showboat Hotel and Casino each holiday


season to bowl the Las Vegas Invitational Junior Tournament. “It was always part


of my Christmas gift, and became more of a family tradition than anything,” Cain explained. “Who knew that 20 years later we would still be traveling to the ends of the Earth to bowl, and that my family still joins me every chance they get?” Cain first bowled the event in the Bantam Division at age 11, and placed third. “I wanted badly to win the scratch division someday because these were arguably the best kids in the country. And, as far as I knew, this was the big time,” Cain added. “Junior Gold didn’t exist then. This, and some big east coast tournaments, were the extent of major youth events. “The gift of opportunity to bowl at Christmas each year


gave me the desire to pursue a life in bowling. The friends, the family, the competition over the holidays all made for a pretty special bond with this sport.”
