Chapter XIV
The Royal Toxophilite Society
By Colonel Walrond
part 4 of 5

There can be no doubt that the social intercourse, and certainty of being able to find friends with whom to shoot, are a powerful inducement to practice, and that the effect in promoting archery of a society like the 'Tox' is infinitely greater than that of any society which only meets occasionally, and whose members have to practise by themselves. That will be an evil day for archery on which any disaster befalls the Royal Toxophilite Society, and may it be far distant. Floreat!

Scores of 500 and upwards made on target and extra-target days of the Royal Toxophilite Society since the institution of the York round.
