October 21 Meeting Notice

Dear Amateur Mendicants & Friends,

Sherlockian Greetings!

Our Fall meeting will be held on Saturday, October 21, at 6:30 (dinner at 7:15) at the Grosse Pointe War Memorial, located at 32 Lakeshore Drive (between Cadieux and Moross) in GPF.

The menu for the evening is Chicken Marsala with mushrooms on a bed of Capellini Pasta, green beans almandine, romaine salad, key lime or pumpkin pie, coffee or tea and wine. The cost is $27, which includes the food, tax, gratuity and use of the facility. Vegetarian dinner selection is available upon advance request. As always, please confirm your attendance for the dinner meeting by sending your check to arrive no later than Monday, October 16, to:

Edward F. Stein, A.M.S.

The canon reading for discussion is The Adventure Of Black Peter
… “He was pinned like a beetle on a card.”
…“Yes there was a tantalus containing brandy and whisky on the sea-chest”
…“One should always look for a possible alternative and provide against it.
It is the first rule of criminal investigation”
…“Basil. That’s my name in those parts.”


The main event of the evening will be the Auction. We will have a ‘live’ auction on about 30 items and a ‘silent’ auction on items that guests can write their bids on before dinner.

Much planning has gone into this dinner meeting and we look forward to another special evening of congeniality, good food and an outstanding program. Until the 21st — be on your guard, for the game's afoot.

"Come at once if convenient... if inconvenient come all the same."

Sherlockian regards,
Ray Mandziuk, Tantalus
