Minutes of the 290th Meeting on 16th May 1998


The Captain proposed the Toasts to the Society, the Arrow, the Captain and the Lieutenant elect. This was followed by a special Toast to Roger Crees, and a get well soon message. The minutes of the 289th Meeting were read by the Lieutenant and signed by the Captain.

Matters arising - There was a vote of thanks to Roger Crees for the repairs he carried out to the cases of the two Gold Medals, free gratis.

The Clerk informed the meeting that the annual loyal message and white rose to the Queen had been dispatched, but no reply had been received as yet, it was expected to arrive very shortly. He also reported that the Reserve Fund now stood at £2,907.03.

Eight gentlemen tendered their apologies for absence, Roger Crees (hospitalised), V Todman, Richard Warham, Joe Noblet, Frank Newbold, Bob Key, Adam Abbot and John Owens who donated their £10 deposits to Reserve Fund.

Matters from the floor - It was pointed out that prior to 1993 the balance of the pool was awarded to the recipient of the Horn Spoon, and why was it not still so? No reference could be found in the minutes of previous meetings relating to why it was handed to the reserve fund. The proposal was made and seconded that the Balance of the Pool be handed to the Reserve Fund. This was defeated by a large majority and it was decided to revert to tradition. (Be it known that the recipient of the Horn Spoon, Tony Kendal, later donated his cash award of £24.76 to the reserve fund, amid loud applause.)

Past Captain John Geldard admitted to losing his Rose Brooch and requested the meeting's permission to purchase a replacement from the Clerk. Permission was granted.

Thanks were expressed all round and the meeting closed at 3.00pm.
