The Clerks Report


Let it be well remembered and recorded that the 284th Meeting of the Society opened with the presentation of a very finely crafted replica of the original Arrow, made by Norman Edwards from silver generously given by Frank Newbould, to be kept in a case made by Adrian Hayes.

The Gentlemen present expressed their great appreciation through Michael Leach, the Past Senior Captain, who received the Arrow on behalf of the Society.

The 118 Gentlemen present, of whom 72 were Longbowmen, were invited to attend the Captain and Lieutenant who opened the morning shoot. In the first end the Lieutenancy was won by John Seddon, and a few ends later the Captaincy was awarded to Ken Moss.

At the conclusion of the morning shooting luncheon was taken followed by the Annual Meeting of the Society. At the conclusion of the afternoon shoot, tea was followed by the presentation of the Arrow and Trophies by the Captain's Lady.

To the Vicar, for the Poor of the Parish - £66.27.

Presentations also to the Lady scorers, the Judge and his Assistant and a bouquet to the Captain's Lady.

The appreciation of the Society to the members of the Whitcliffe Mount Archers for the very fine setting of the field at the Liversedge Secondary School.

We also enjoyed the company of:
L Ellison, J Ronald, Mick Hayes, R Pointing, B Donaldson, G Gaunt and the Clerk, who had some other things to do.

Apologies were received from D Edwards, H Grace, Don Gardner and Frank Lister.

133 Gentlemen entered, 15 fell by the wayside and 128 stood on the line, of those 72 were longbowmen.


Minutes of the 1992 meeting


The 284th Meeting was opened with the Loyal Toast and toasts to the Captain and Lieutenant-Elect. The Lieutenant was invited to read the Minutes of the 283rd Meeting, which were accepted and signed by the Captain.

Gentlemen were invited to raise a glass to the memory of a staunch and worthy member, George Penman, who died recently.

Apologies had been received from Don Gardner, Harry Grace and Frank Lister, all of whom sent their best wishes for a successful Meeting.

The Clerk read the gracious reply from HM the Queen to our message of loyal greetings.

The Society was advised of the generous support of the Kirklees Metropolitan Council towards the expenses of the Meeting.

The Accounts of the Society showed a balance of £1256.95 in the Capital account and £73.31 in the Interest account of the Reserve Fund, of which £41.46 was required for expenses. The Society wished to thank Mrs Sallie Penman and John Sutcliffe for their generous support.

A discussion on the title of the replica Arrow resulted in the decision to refer to it as the Replica Arrow.

The Captain then closed the Meeting and invited Gentlemen to return to the field.
