Co-sponsors of the Dangling Prussian Pub NIght

Have you heard of the Legion of Zoom?

If you're touring the internet Sherlockian pathways these days to look in on different societies celebrating Sherlock Holmes, you probably have. To commemorate those who have managed to sit in on the meetings of seventeen different groups, membership is awarded in the Legion of Zoom. All you have to do is tell them which seventeen groups you've attended meetings of. They're good folks and trust your honesty. And today, we learned of a generous interpretation of that rule by the Legion: If you attend an even co-sponsored by several groups, you can count those groups on your list of seventeen.

So let's talk about who is sponsoring Pub Night at the Dangling Prussian, January 14th?

The Montague Street Incorrigibles, to be sure.

And Peoria's own Hansoms of John Clayton is happy to co-sponsor the event as well.

And the leadership of the Reichenbachian Cliff-divers has been in touch, and agreed to get in on the action.

The Dark Lantern League, the internet role-playing group of the early 2000s has revived to join the cause.

Will the Midwest Scion of the Four add themselves to that list? Going to have to get quorum on that one.

Who else, who else . . . hmmm.

The Dangling Prussian Amateur Press Association has never actually had a non-print meeting, much like the John H. Watson Society before Zoom. And this is a Dangling Prussian pub night.

The Sherlockian Chronologist Guild seems like a candidate for co-sponsorship.

But then again, if we were to seek out a few more sponsoring societies, it might be possible to  . . . . technically . . . make an event that would qualify a person for the Legion of Zoom in one night?

Then, again Pub Night at the Dangling Prussian is going to be a six-hour-long hang-out. And I don't think the Legion of Zoom has said how much of a meeting you have to attend. And they've already spoken of banning me from the society for bringing up this possibility. But that's the thing about laws, by-laws, and even buy-laws -- they have to be tested don't they?

Four short weeks and the fun has already started. Stay tuned!

Oh, and that registration link to register in advance, as advised: 

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
