Happy Holidays and 2018 News

“I had called upon my friend Sherlock Holmes upon the second morning after Christmas, with the intention of wishing him the compliments of the season.”

– The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle (BLUE)

We would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very safe and happy holiday season to you and your families. We thank you for your continued support and look forward to what 2018 will bring.

We look forward to seeing many of you in New York for the Sherlock Holmes and Friends weekend of January 10-14. We are issuing a souvenir card for the Baker Street Irregulars annual dinner and the Gaslight Gala.

There will be our Numismatic Friends of Sherlock Holmes dinners in Irving, Texas in March and then Philadelphia in August. Both of these dinners will take place during the American Numismatic Association’s National Money Show and World’s Fair of Money.

Gregory L. Zentz, the 18th Garrideb, has authored a pastiche The Strange Case of the Fifty Talents that we will publish in the very near future. Later in 2018, we will also publish our first catalog The Numismatic Edgar Allan Poe.

Our story discussions for 2018 will be as follows:

February – The Devil’s Foot

March – The Red Circle

April – The Man with the Twisted Lip

May – Shoscombe Old Place

June – The Three Students

July – The Valley of Fear

August – The Mazarin Stone

September – The Abbey Grange

October – The Illustrious Client

November – His Last Bow

Our continuing thanks to Frank Mentzel, Brad Keefauver and Watson’s Tin Box for their monthly contributions to our story discussions.

We now have 80 Garridebs within our group, hailing from 25 different states and 5 countries. Texas claims 9 Garridebs, New Jersey has 7 Garridebs and Maryland counts 6 Garridebs!

Thank you again for your continued support and our best wishes for a prosperous 2018 for everyone!

  1. Learning to navigate the website and enjoying our shared interest in Holmes. Cold weather seem to help – plenty of time to stay in and read! Ready to purchase membership after F.U.N.; looking forward to seeing you there in Tampa. Thanks for the Christmas greeting. Best wishes to you for the new year!
