Next Meeting:

The Goose Club will have our annual picnic meeting this Sunday, August 27, 2006, starting about 3:00 PM and running until dusk.  The meeting will be held at the Rustic Canyon Recreation Center at Brooktree and Latimer road south of Sunset Blvd. From the San Diego Freeway head west on Sunset, then turn left at the stoplight at Brooktree Road. Follow Brooktree to Latimer, turn right on Latimer, and enter the Rustic Canyon Recreation Center.

The Story of the day will be "The Hound of the Baskervilles," but there will be no quiz.

For food and drink, bring something for yourself and something for everyone.

If you have any questions, please call the Windigate at 818-703-8708.

Something about the Goose Club of the Alpha Inn

Some Sherlockian societies are noted for:

The Goose Club has none of these. We pride ourselves on being one of the least-organized of all Sherlockian organizations. We have no dues, no treasury, no planning committees, no publications. What we do have are almost 20 years of traditions and a mailing list.

We had our first meeting in January of 1977, and we have met once every month since then. In general, we meet at memberís houses in the San Fernando Valley or West Los Angeles, but we do have a dinner meeting each January, and we have a picnic in July. Of course, we have traditions at our meetings:

If you want to join or have any questions, please call, fax, or email at any time.

Neat-o graphics and links!

Our Goose Club site still has a full-text HTML version of The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle, our namesake story. (Read it to find out where we get our name, and why our president is called "Windigate.")
