Minutes of the 1988 meeting


The Lieutenant read the Minutes of the 279th Meeting which were accepted and signed by the Captain. There were no matters arising.

The Clerk recorded eleven apologies and, in correspondence, advised that an acknowledgment had been received from the Queen's private secretary, for the Loyal message. Gentlemen were invited to assist Mrs Julia Smith, who was writing a book on the Society of Archers. Assistance was requested in preparing a detailed photographic record of all trophies and property.

The establishment of a Reserve Fund was confirmed and a committee of management was agreed as the last four Captains and the Clerk. An annual report to be given and all funds received to be invested with only the interest to be used. There would be no sponsorship allowed but all members were invited to seek contributions.

The practice of smoking before the Loyal Toast was deplored and a suggestion that the age of admission to the Society be reduced from 21 to 18 was heavily defeated.

The Captain closed the Meeting at 3.20.
