The reigning U.S. Mens National Amateur Champion Andrew Cain, 20, of Tempe, Ariz., will represent the United States in the 38th AMF Bowling World Cup in Riga, Lativa, Oct. 19-26.

Cain, a powerful lefthander who turns 21 on the opening day of the tournament, is a graduate of Junior TEAM USA and, by virtue of winning the national amateur championship, the nominal leader of the 2002 TEAM USA adult squad.

He will be a senior this fall at Arizona State University, where he bowls for the Sun Devils and majors in aerospace engineering. He already owns 24 perfect “300” games and 11 three-game series of 800 or better, the highest being 837.

Cain is an American Bowling Congress Chuck Hall Star of Tomorrow awardee. His achievements to date include All-American and Scholastic All-American status at Arizona State and a five-gold medal performance as a junior bowler at the 2001 Lee Evans Tournament of the Americas.

“Ive dreamed of competing in this tournament (the AMF World Cup) since I was 6, when I learned how to bowl,” stated Cain. “In fact, when the World Cup came to Las Vegas in 1999, I seriously considered cutting classes to drive to Las Vegas, just to see what the World Cup was all about!”

More than 90 countries are expected to send their men and womens national champions to the 2002 AMF Bowling World Cup, which will be staged at the 24-lane Toss Boulinga Halle in Riga.

The U.S. womens representative will be announced later.



Greendale, Wis. – The American Bowling Congress has turned over its Bowling Magazine subscriber list to Chicago-based Luby Publishing, Inc., for fulfillment, marking the end of Bowling Magazines 68 years of service to the sport.

The announcement was made jointly July 17 by ABC Executive Director Roger Dalkin and Luby Publishing President Keith Hamilton.

Bowling Magazine subscribers will receive copies of Bowlers Journal International in Bowling Magazines place, beginning with BJIs September 2002 issue. Because Bowling Magazine was published bimonthly and Bowlers Journal is a monthly publication, Bowling Magazine subscribers will receive the same number of issues they were entitled to receive. Those who already subscribe to BJI will have their subscriptions extended by the appropriate number of issues.

“The success of American Bowler as a quarterly publication mailed to all 1.7 million ABC members is the primary reason we are terminating Bowling Magazine,” Dalkin said. “Bowling Magazine has been a fixture in our sport for 68 years, but it is no longer economically feasible to fund two publications. ABCs first priority is to communicate with its members and American Bowler is the tool we designed to serve that purpose.”

“We are pleased Luby Publishing has agreed to fulfill Bowling Magazines outstanding subscriptions,” added Dalkin. “It was very important to ABC to find a way to satisfy our obligations to those who placed their faith in Bowling Magazine.”

“Bowlers Journal International, founded in 1913, is the nations oldest sports magazine with a colorful history of its own and a great respect for the sport of American tenpins,” said Hamilton. “Im confident Bowlers Journal will do a great job in providing continuing service to Bowling Magazine readers.”
