Quotation from the late J.P. Monro author of 'The Etiquette of Bowling'
The Game of bowls is a science, it is the study of a lifetime, in which you may exhaust yourself, but not your subject. It is a contest, a duel calling for courage, skill, strategy and self control.
It is a test of temper, a trial of honour, a revealer of character. It affords the chance to play the man and act the gentleman.
It means going into God’s out-of-doors, getting close to nature, fresh air, exercise! A sweeping away of mental cobwebs, genuine reaction of the tired tissues.
It is a cure for care, and antidote to worry. It includes companionship with friends, for courtesy, kindliness and generosity to an opponent.
It promotes not only physical health but moral force.
