Minutes of the 1985 meeting


Following the Loyal Toast and Toasts to the Arrow, the Society, the Captain Elect and Lieutenant Elect, the Lieutenant was requested to read the minutes of the 1984 meeting. These were duly signed by the Captain.

Matters arising:- Longbows - It was agreed that the Rules of the British Longbow Society be our guide to the use of the Longbow. It was also agreed that self nocks would be acceptable in addition to horn nocks.

It was resolved that the letter 'L' be noted in the Results List to indicate a Longbowman, particularly now that the ranks of Longbowmen are increasing.

The Clerk then dealt with apologies & correspondence commencing with Her Majesty's gracious reply to our Loyal Message.

There being no further business the meeting was closed and the Gentlemen withdrew to continue shooting at 2.45pm.
