Here we are a mere six weeks until the treasure hunt begins on August 1. Since the posting of the first warm up question, I’ve heard from The Sherlock Holmes Society of India. The society will have a team in the competition. I’m so glad SHSI is joining in the fun.
As to the first warm up question, we had a few comments about it. I’m guessing most of you solved it rather quickly; the answer is January 7th (VALL). If you have your 1930 Doubleday Single Volume with the Christopher Morley introduction (Buttons’ beloved ‘W’), the quote is found on page 773.
As noted before, the theme this year is ”that mixture of imagination and reality which is the basis of my art” (Holmes,THOR). With the first question, we talked about reality. For the second warm up question, we have a mixture:
Kitty+Porky+Birdy=common 4 letter location–where?
I look forward to your answers,
