Be it recorded that on 31st May 1980 in the 308th year of the Society the 272nd recorded meeting took place in the grounds of Bramcote School in Scarborough. Eighty one gentlemen assembled, thus equalling the largest gathering in 1977. Be it further recorded the meeting was opened by the gallant Jack Flinton who then handed over to Mr John Odd.

Minutes of the 1980 meeting


The Loyal Toast was proposed by the Captain of the Arrow, followed by toasts to the Arrow, enjoined with the name of the Captain Elect and the Lieutenant Elect.

Minutes of the 271st Meeting were read, confirmed and signed by the Captain.

Matters arising - the Clerk reported that silver plates had been obtained, engraved and fastened to the Carrying Box for the Ben Hird Trophy, and these had been purchased for the sum of £12. At this point Mr Alain Holt rose to confirm his and Mr George Stockham's offer to provide the plates. The Society accepted this generosity with acclamation.

The Clerk reported further that the balance at the Bank remained at £15.22.

Correspondence - Apologies were received from Messrs Sam Henderson, Robert Hardy, Bill Alexander and Bill Harris. Her Majesty the Queen expressed appreciation at the telegram of loyal greeting that was sent.

The Sixpence - no longer to be legal tender, it was decided after much debate that, to maintain tradition, the Shilling should replace the Sixpence and that two shillings be awarded for golds.

Any other business - Thanks were expressed to Mr Jack Percival, and the Scarborough Archers, whose badge is shown herein, for their sterling work. It was agreed that Blue and Silver could quite properly be worn in matters of this Society. And a bowl, c.1820 was offered for presentation, by Mr Alain Holt.

There being no further business, the Gentlemen then repaired to the butts.

In Memoriam
The Sixpence, in the service of the Society. 14/5/1673 - 31/5/1980
