The Clerks Report


Let it be recorded that 112 Gentlemen assembled at Selby on 21st May 1994, for the 286th Recorded Meeting in the 322nd year of the Society.

The day was wet, cold and windy but shooting commenced at 10.30 o'clock after the Gentlemen were assembled by the Lieutenant's bugle. The first item of note was the winning of the Lieutenancy by Edwin Chattaway in the first end, one of the 77 longbowmen on the line.

The Captaincy was secured by Philip Claydon of Selby Archers later in the morning. Luncheon was taken followed by the Meeting of the Society.

Shooting continued for a further two hours in the afternoon with slightly reduced numbers due to the inclement weather and tea was taken followed by the presentation of the Arrow and Trophies being made by the Captain's Lady.

To the Vicar, for the Poor of the Parish £43.00

A Miserable day, wet, cold and blowing hard on the field, but warm and most enjoyable inside as guests of Selby Archers.

Major Roger Crees, Clerk to the Society.

We also had the pleasure of the company of L Whittaker, L Harrisson, S Patterson, J Whitehouse, N Grimshaw, P Cromack, P Garner, S Brown, A Topham, K Morrison, M S Hayes, S Brock, J Wright, M Cooper, A Flannagan, W Richardson, G Foster, G Thorley, C Line, R Pointing, J Carr, C Scurrah, J Ramsey, J Bennet and the Clerk.

114 Gentlemen entered of whom 77 were longbowmen.

The weather conditions were appalling, wet, cold and raining hard most of the day, and a tribute must be paid to those who stuck it out.


Minutes of the 1994 meeting


The Clerk was greatly honoured to receive a fine Testimonial from the Captain, to mark 26 years in office, for which he expressed his sincere thanks.

Apologies: Eleven members regretted that they could not attend.

Minutes: The Lieutenant read the Minutes of the 285th Meeting which were signed by the Captain.

Correspondence: The Society was honoured by a message from HM The Queen in reply to our loyal address. A letter was received from JW Bugden and PM Harrisson proposing that the rules governing shooting be altered to allow only 'bare-bows', that is bows with no sights or stabilisers. After a long discussion it was agreed that there should be no alteration to the existing rules.

Other Business: It was noted that 13 Gentlemen had entered but not attended. This gave rise to difficulties with the catering arrangements which were overcome by an immediate response from Members present. Arising, it was agreed that, in future, entry forms would request a payment of £10.00 as part payment which would not be returned unless cancellation was made before the Captain had finalised his arrangements.

The Meeting was closed by the Captain at 3.10pm.
