The February meeting was very informative, as many of the upcoming events for 2011 were laid out.

1. The adventure for discussion for the March meeting (to be held chez Wood at 7:00 pm, March 1) will be “The Retired Colourman” this is the final story in

    The Casebook

.

2. Please mark your calendars for our “Master’s Dinner”. This most prestigious event will take place on Saturday, March 19 at Bessborough Armories (bar opens at 6:00 pm). A wonderfully-catered affair featuring a five-course meal. This event has always proved to be a lively event full of Sherlockian fellowship and entertainment. The Petrel Players are sure to perform to perfection!

Please inform Fran if you wish to offer a toast, or if you have any further questions.

3. Besides our regular meeting in April (The story for discussion at this meeting will be Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s well-known tale of “The Lost Special” ) a Classic Movie Night has also been scheduled for Friday, April 15 at UBC. Details will be announced at a later date.

Also scheduled for later this year: Our annual “Reichenbach Falls” picninc, our “Silver Blaze Race” a meeting at Sherlock’s Cafe in New Westminster and a “Sins of the City” tour hosted by the Vancouver Police Museum.

We are all looking forward to an exciting Holmes-filled year ahead. Please make plans to join us at any of our events. You can contact the Consulting Detective at our g-mail address.

Holmes says, in “The Retired Colourman” that “….is not all life pathetic and futile?” The Stormy Petrels would highly disagree!
