Frequently Asked Questions

The prime purpose of the website is enable our members and other interested parties, to have access to our ancient records which previously could only be examined on the day of the Competition itself by looking through our hand written Record Books or visiting The Public Records Office at Northallerton in North Yorkshire by appointment.

We will try to answer and feature relevant questions about the Society in general but any correspondence regarding other aspects of the Society should be addressed to The Clerk whose address can be found on the Contacts page.
