Minutes of the 1983 meeting


The Captain opened the Annual Meeting of the Society by calling the Lieutenant to read the Minutes of the 1982 Meeting. These were approved and signed by the Captain. There were no matters arising that were not advised as being on the agenda.

The Clerk offered the apologies of Mr Sam Henderson, Mr Frank Newbould & Mr Bill Wales, who all conveyed their best wishes for a successful meeting.

H M The Queen's reply to the 1982 Loyal Message was read and the difficulties caused by the withdrawal of the telegram were discussed. The Loyal Message to H M The Queen was sent by telemessage and a reply would be received in due course.

The financial position was explained & it was recommended that an administral charge of 10/- (50p) per entry be introduced in 1984. This was subsequently agreed by the Gentlemen at the Meeting following tea. It was also agreed that the pool be increased from 10/- (50p) to £1 per head. It was further agreed that there should be no other changes to the Rules of the Society.

The Captain closed the Meeting at 2.32pm and the Gentlemen withdrew to continue shooting.
