Notes from this Meeting:
The meeting started on time, with discussions about what everyone has been doing over the summer. We mentioned several members who couldn't make tonight's meeting, including Barb (she was kind enough to allow Rick to attend).
Mystery Quote: Since Tom forgot to post a mystery quote in the notes from the last meeting, he provided one "on the fly". The quote was from "Scandal in Bohemia", and it was guessed correctly by Candace, Barry, Michelle, and Rick.
Mystery to Solve: The mystery this month was entitled D.O.A. After much discussion, Beth and Candace shared credit for uncovering the key parts to this mystery.
Story to Discuss: Bill did a masterful job at presenting "The Gloria Scott", and even brought a model sailing ship to liven up the discussion.
Plans for the September Meeting:
The next meeting will be Tuesday, September 17, 2019, at 7pm. Pat volunteered to lead a discussion on "The Reigate Squire", and Beth agreed to bring mystery Character, and Barry said he would come prepared with a "Fun Fact". The Mystery to solve is shown below:
