Events to Continue Virtually!

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have suspended all in-person NMSOBC events. We have had several successful virtual meetings, and we plan to continue gathering Together Apart.

Welcome to the Noble and Most Singular Order of the Blue Carbuncle, the Sherlock Holmes society for the Portland/Vancouver area. We are a scion society of the Baker Street Irregulars. 2021 will mark our group’s Golden Anniversary, and we plan some special events to celebrate 50 years of keeping green the memory of Holmes and Watson.

We generally meet once a month. Regular meetings consist of lunch, a story discussion, and presentations and quizzes or games. We also have special events throughout the year and are a proud sponsor of the Left Coast Sherlockian Symposium. New members are always welcome; check our calendar of events.
