Our 46th meeting was conducted on Tuesday, April 20, 2021, and began at 7pm. This was the first meeting in about a year since we met in person, due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. For those who could not make it in person, we also setup a large TV with a computer attached to support a ZOOM connection to our meeting. Attending in person was Beth, Barb, Bill, Rick, Barry, Pat, Michele, Linda, and Tom. Joining us by ZOOM was Carol, Marc, and Ed.
Notes from this meeting:
Everyone seemed to be in a joyful mood for this meeting, a condition that can only be attributed to being back in person at Beach PC's computer repair shop.
After some small talk, Pat started the meeting by bring several fun facts about Sherlock Holmes and ACD.
Following Pat, Tom introduced Show and Tell by displaying his new sweatshirt. Tom then showed a clip from Granada TV's production of SCANDAL IN BOHEMIA, and proposed that we incorporate a short clip at each meeting in the future.
Next on our agenda was attempting to solve the mystery entitled HOT CASH. Everyone participated, but kudos go to Michele and Beth for uncovering the main points of the mystery.
Our meeting ended with a fantastic presentation of ADVENTURE OF THE CARDBOARD BOX, by Michele. She even brought a cardboard box containing two ears packed in rock salt. Well done, Michele!
Plans for the June meeting:
Special Note: We had scheduled a meeting to take place in May, 2021, but it was cancelled by Tom. At the time of the scheduled meeting, he had some personal issues to deal with, preventing him from hosting the meeting. The good news is that the issues have been resolved, and the assignments for the missed May meeting will be carried over to the June meeting.
The mystery to solve is pictured below:
