Welcome to the Pacific Northwest, Sherlockians!

We’re Moving to Hybrid Meetings!

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have not met in person for a long time. We will begin having in-person meetings again this month, but they will be hybrid, with people welcome to join on Zoom (generally a half-hour after the scheduled meeting start). We have had several successful virtual meetings, and we plan to continue gathering both Together and Together Apart, even welcoming some special guests. For details, please see our Events page. Keep an eye on the website or our Facebook page for updates as we have them. Wishing everyone good health and a reasonable amount of sanity!

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. Our theme for 2022 is Travel, as we keep 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; because of COVID, we will continue to have hybrid meetings, in person and on Zoom. 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.

We are also sponsoring the Alpha Inn Pastiche Book Club, a monthly virtual gathering to discuss Sherlock Holmes pastiches (broadly defined). Please see the Pastiche Club page for more details.
