Purple and White drill. Leonore has purchased lots of purple and white drill to be used for banners, caps etc Cost of $120 was authorised by meeting.
Proposal was discussed. We are planning a living display: set up a feasting tent etc, Adeline looking into suitable food. Arts display both static and active, please bring your weaving, shoemaking etc. Corny is arranging the fighters. Hrothgar is arranging the archers. We are planning to have a shoot the person type arrangement if Abbey agrees. Funds raised will cover costs and discussion was held into donating the profits made from the archery back to the Abbey from the Shire. Costs of setting up archery around $650 for arrows and bows, $120 for blunts and $20 approx for tape.
Meeting agreed expense will be fine as it will be covered by income but final decision will not be made until we know if we are running Archery at Abbey.
