Minutes of the 289th Meeting on 24th May 1997


After the Toasts to the Society, the Arrow and Captain and Lieutenant elect, the Lieutenant read the minutes of the last meeting which were signed by the Captain.

There were no matters arising. Four gentlemen tendered their apologies for absence. The Clerk read H M The Queen's message of thanks and good wishes to the Society.

Matters from the Floor - It was proposed that a red rose be included in the loyal message to H M The Queen together with the white rose of Yorkshire. This was defeated by a large majority.

It was proposed, once again, that bare bows shoot for the whole Gold and recurves shoot for the inner black spot. This was firmly defeated and it was also decided that the matter would not be raised again for 4 years.

It was decided that compliments to the ladies would be reserved for the end of the meeting and that there would not be applause at luncheon when the ladies withdrew, only the customary rising by the gentlemen.

Owing to meals for guests not being taken up, as ordered, it was agreed that a payment for each guest included in the entry form should have a sum of £10.00 added. In the case of tea only being requested, the sum of £1.50 for each guest should be added..

It was recorded that the cases of the two Gold Medals require attention and it was agreed that repairs should be put in hand and the costs arising be met from the Interest Account of the Reserve Fund.

Thanks were expressed to the Captain and the Clerk and the Meeting closed at 3.00pm.
