In addition to hosting the 2010 Winter Olympic & Paralympic games, our fair city is also the site of the February 2010 Vancouver Pen Club meeting ;)
Date: Thursday February 18, 2010
Time: 6:00pm-6:30pm ("meet & greet"); 6:30pm-8:30pm meeting time.
Location: Perks pen store---5844 Cambie Street (@ 42nd Ave.) in Vancouver, across from Oakridge mall (and conveniently located one block away from the "Oakridge-41st Ave" Skytrain stop on the "Canada Line" train)
The theme for this meeting will be "What do you look for in a fountain pen for your own use?". It was recommended by Bill Kempton, who wrote to me that "(he's) sure everyone has their own priorities, like grip, nib, weight, brand - and even colour"....I think it's a super topic, so please bring your own examples to the meeting and let us know what qualities you look for when buying a fountain pen. Our secondary theme is always "Newest Acquisitions", so if you have any new writing-instrument-related acquisitions such as pens, paper, ink, etc. to show the club, please bring them along, too. Hope to see a good turnout next Thursday!
A photo from the Feb.18th meeting. Turnout was sparse, most likely due to the Olympic events and celebrations, but many nice fountain pens were brought for the show & tell. Thanks to all who attended!
