Weeks, Fred, City of York Council

Dear Mr Shrimp,

Thank you for your request.

After an extensive search of our records I can confirm that there are no
records of any Scotsmen being legally shot with a bow and arrow in the
last ten years.

There is however a vague recollection of an alleged occurrence several
centuries ago which involved a group of men from the Nottingham area,
dressed in green, who were enjoying a stag night in York.

Yours sincerely,

F Weeks
