I’m very happy to report I met with a logo designer last night! He’s familiar with Sherlock Holmes and his wife is one of the 221b Con directors, so what he doesn’t know she can fill him in on. I should have design proofs in my hands within a week and a half. I’ve very excited by his ideas and excitement for the project!
In other news one of our honorary members (JJ) is attending Scintillation of Scions this weekend in Maryland and has offered to give a little recap of the event here for all members. I for one am looking forward to reading it. I was sorry to miss it, but it simply wasn’t in the cards this time around. Thought I am making plans to attend in 2016 and so should you!
I (CP) will be attending the BSI Brunch on 8/2 (once I get the check in the mail to the BSI) at the Desmond Hotel in Albany. It looks to be a lovely event and a nice way to meet with local and not so local Sherlockians. I’ll be certain to report back on the event. If you would like to review/report on a Sherlockian event you attend for this site please let me know either on twitter or facebook.
We are also looking for those interested in doing recaps of tv shows, reviews of movies, and of course books on Sherlock Holmes. Again, simply let me know and we’ll work out a way to get me the information so I can post it here on the site.
Last but not least, I’m thinking that our first event could be a viewing of Mr. Holmes followed by food and discussion after the film. Of course this all hinges on how far the Conan Doyle Estate wishes to take their latest copyright case. Look for a poll on the facebook group about possible dates and after film meeting place. Of course prior to viewing the film do read “A Slight Trick of the Mind” on which the movie is based.
That’s all for now. I’m off to enjoy my Saturday by diving into the Canon and following all the fun at Scintillation of Scions on twitter.
