Fall Update from the Gasogene

 Hello Everyone:

I trust (and hope) all of you are safe and healthy as the pandemic continues with no immediate end in sight.  As you know, our little scion has suspended meetings in 2020, and it is very unlikely we will be able to meet this year.  While I personally miss the interactions and camaraderie, I'm confident you understand the risk.  We will wait until next year to resume operations once a vaccine is available.  

Some of the smaller scions have used Zoom (or other online video services) to conduct meetings.  We have about 100 members on our distribution list, and generally, we attract about 40 to 50 members to our dinner meetings.  Zoom calls for that number of potential attendees would not be effective.  I think all of us prefer the energy of face-to-face meetings, and so, we will wait until we can safely meet.

It appears that The Commonwealth Club will survive.   You may be aware that the long-time President, Stephen Barber, passed away.  There was some concern that without his leadership during the pandemic that the club would close permanently.  A new board of directors was appointed, and the club now offers take out services for the Friday fish fries..  We hope to be able to use the club again in 2021 for our dinner meetings.

I will provide further updates (periodically) as news and Sherlockian information becomes available.  In the meantime, don't forget about our club, and stay safe.


Yours in Holmes, 


John (Gasogene).
