The meeting would be asked to decide as to allowing tho 1889 meeting to lapse, in view of tho New Zealand meeting taking place in January, 1800.

Last year's officers were re-elected, and it was decided that the Council should be constituted similarly to the last one. In order that the full energies of all interested should be engaged in making the New Zealand rifle meeting a success, it was resolved not to hold any meeting of the Otago Rifle Association this year. It was further reaolved to recommend the incoming Council to consider the desirability of making a donation to the New Zealand Riflo Association.

A suggestion was made that the Ladies' Challenge Shield be competed for during tho summer, and an extra match fired the same day, under the control of the Otago Rifle Association.
