Samlesbury 12th September 1936


Be it remembered that fourteen Gentlemen Archers assembled at Samlesbury Old Hall, near Blackburn, on Saturday the twelfth day of September, 1936, to shoot for the Antient Silver Arrow and other trophies according to custom.

This was the 264th recorded year and the 236th, recorded meeting of the Society.

Be it remembered that heavy and continuous rain had fallen for many hours and that the ground was flooded thereby. The rain having temporarily ceased shooting commenced at 12.15pm but only six arrows were shot by each archer before the storm again forced the competitors to take shelter.

Be it remembered that with his second arrow at the first end Colonel Austin T Porritt pierced the gold and so became holder of the Arrow and Captain of the Society for the year.

That Mr T K Kelly with his two arrows at the third end did pierce the gold and also the red and according to the rules became the holder of the Silver Bugle and Lieutenant for the year.

Be it remembered that luncheon was partaken of in Samlesbury Old Hall and that wine was provided by the outgoing Captain according to custom.

Be it also remembered that one gentleman was fined one shilling under rule number 7 of the Society. As rain was still falling at 3.30pm it was decided to abandon the meeting and award the prizes in accordance with thr hits recorded at three ends in the morning.

A vote of thanks was accorded to the Bowmen of Pendle & Samlesbury for the use of their ground for the competition.
