Members were advised we need articles for the Journal, and they will participate in the competition for the Tom H. Cup for 1998.

Talk:
The talk for the night was given by David on The Hundred Years War. David had prepared a very interesting talk with the aid of a video which he had prepared. The members were given a very interesting History lesson on the Kings of England and France. How the main issues of the Hundred Years was was because the French did not accept decent through the female line even though it was a more direct link. David showed the coins of each of the Kings and also of those of the other European States aligned with one side or the other. The President gave a vote of thanks with acclimation from the members.
