Drinks and dinner at our meetings are Dutch treat.
There are no business meetings, no board of directors, no treasury. There were four founding officers, but three of them have died and one has vanished. No replacements have been named.
There are numerous committees, such as the Committee on Quizzes, the Committee on Victuals and the Committee on Commercials. However, these committees never meet and their membership is unknown.
Members are often found at other Sherlockian goings-on, such as plays, films, talks, and gatherings of mystery lovers. The Committee on Things Like That keeps members up-to-date on these opportunities via this website and announcements at meetings. Many members participate in a number of Sherlockian groups.
