THE SHERLOCK HOLMES
PIPE CLUB OF BOSTON
Keeping The Smoking Lamp Lit Since 1989
It seems like forever but, I am happy to be writing this to inform you that the club is open and we will be having out first gathering since March and will take place on Tuesday July 7 at the usual time. I am unsure of meet ups before at CB Perkin’s but, I am going to try and grab some dinner at Chinatown.
I’d like to thank Andrew for hosting the Zoom meet-ups as they proved to be a welcome format during the distancing rules. We may want to make an addition to the by-laws to adopt virtual meetings as an approved method for voting etc. I realize we already we made some emergency decisions via that platform because of the uncertainty of when we could meet again but, we should have a firm policy in place especially on the required number necessary to be electronically present to vote on behalf of the club. Also, a shot out to Derick for offering his shop as an alternative meeting space if this distancing rules were going to be extended. This is all new to us and I have a feeling it is not the last time this will happen. The government and states appear to be comfortable with shutting down in the case of questionable safety for citizens.
Another item that has been brought to my attention is that some of us have fallen behind on some payments (either club pipes or dues) owed to the club. In response to this I have worked with Dennis to add a payments tab to the web site. There you can make any payment via PayPal due to the club efficiently, safely, and discreetly.
Cannot wait to see everyone next week but, if you are still concerned with distancing I totally understand and look forward to seeing you at a future gathering. To our friends we have not seen in a while please take some time and drop us a note that you are well.
Presidents raffle will we easy this month, show up and get a ticket!
See you Tuesday, KC
Riverville Murder - Chapter 15
“Very efficient, Scott. We can use you at Interpole, if you are interested.”
“No thanks. I like what I’m doing just fine. Do you know anything about the destination for the arms on the Dolphin? There is a chance, albeit a small one, that the Dolphin could escape the U.S. Coast Guard patrols.”
“Ulster and the Provisional IRA, without a doubt. If the Dolphin does escape, we’ll grab them at sea. Through friends in Ulster, we have learned the name of the freighter that is to meet the Dolphin. And, be it a fact, that ship has already left port, as have two fast chase-destroyers of the Irish Navy. We hope to capture the Dolphin, should it get that far, along with the freighter and its captain. If you folks get the Dolphin, we will certainly bring in the freighter’s captain for a long talk. He, and the ship, are under foreign registry. I just hope we can hold on to them. So, you can see that we’ve been watching the North American weather as well.”
“Looks like things are going well all around. I’ll call you again regarding the Dolphin so you can alert your navy if the boat escapes the coast guard. Oh yes, and for cooperating thoroughly, Jim Hurley will probably be deported, rather than serve time in a federal prison. He will be sent directly to Dublin under guard of a federal marshal.”
“I’ll be waiting for him to deplane and happily clamps the cuffs on, of that you can be sure. There must be outstanding warrants on him. If not in the North, surly here in the Republic.”
