The second meeting of the Sherlock Holmes Society of the Cape Fear met on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 7:00 pm in the Beach PC Training Center (5905 Carolina Beach Road, Suite 7). All total, 8 members were present.
Our second meeting began by welcoming members who were absent for the first meeting. Next, we reviewed this weeks puzzle and offered possible solutions. Congradulations goes to Barry Brown, who presented the correct solution! Way to go Barry!
Next, we all settled down with our drinks and snacks and listened to Barry Brown deliver his presentation on the story entitled "Scandal in Bohemia". Much discussion about the finer points raised by this story was contributed by all members present. The highlight to Barry's presentation was the mystery of Sherlock's landlady, referred to in this story as "Mrs. Turner." To elaborate, Scandal is the only Conon Doyle story that refers to a "Mrs. Turner", instead of the landlady we all have grown to love in the other stories, "Mrs. Hudson." There were many other points made during Barry's presentation!
Our third meeting is scheduled to take place on May 23, 2017, at 7:00 pm. The place will be the same - Beach PC's Training Center located at 5905 Carolina Beach Road, Suite 7, which is just south of Monkey Junction right next to Strickland's Army/Navy Store. Our meetings are open to the public.
The topic of the May meeting will be a discussion of the story entitled "Charles Augustus Milverton" led by Michelle Martin. Those members planning to attend are asked to read this story so that they may contribute to the discussion.
