Minutes of the 288th Meeting


The minutes of the 287th Meeting of the Society were read by the Lieutenant and signed by the Captain.

Apologies had been received from 11 Gentlemen. The Clerk read Her Majesty's gracious reply to our loyal message.

A proposal had been received that the longbowmen should score in the Gold in a manner that differed from the scoring by other archers. This was cleanly defeated.

Thanks were expressed to Mr Roger Turner for his generous gift of a voucher for the raffle.

The Gentlemen wished to record their thanks and appreciation to the Ladies responsible for excellent catering under difficult conditions.

There followed a brief Meeting of the Council of Captains.

It was agreed that the retirement of the Clerk, Roger Crees be approved and that Stan Snow be appointed as Clerk to the Council of Captains.

The retiring Clerk was thanked for his 28 years in service to the Council and Society.
