Synopsis Charles Playfair provides an insight into the background of this book of 39 cartoons with the following short introduction:

To my fellow members of the Fish Hoek Bowling Club with whom the idea of this book originated, and in full recognition of their sporting tolerance of one who can only 'draw the shot' on paper. I also record my special thanks to The Shell Company of South Africa Limited whose support has made possible the publication of this edition.

This is followed by a foreword from A W (Billy) Macey, President of the South African Bowling Association, and then the cartoons.
