“…it was impossible to refuse to listen to the story of the young and beautiful woman, tall, graceful and queenly, who presented herself at Baker Street…”

On March 1st, the Stormy Petrels will meet to discuss “The Solitary Cyclist”


A dastardly plot is definitely afoot, with the lovely music teacher, one of four Violets in the canon, at the centre.

Holmes and Watson to the rescue!


Holmes: “The next few minutes were delicious.  It was a straight left against a slogging ruffian.  I emerged as you see me.  Mr. Woodley went home in a cart.”

Find out what happened to our heroine and the bazaar bag of characters surrounding her. What role does a defrocked clergyman play?

Who do you think is referred to as the title character? Violet or the mysterious bearded cyclist following her?

Prize draw question:  What was Violet’s father’s occupation? (bring your answer to the meeting)

Meeting as usual at Hampton Place (UBC)

Tuesday, March 1st at 7:00 pm

Please note that treasurer Elsa will be collecting the payments for our “Master’s Dinner” which takes place March 12th.
