Vancouver Pen Club meeting-- Thursday April 17, 2008

Hello fellow fountain pen enthusiasts!

Here are the long-awaited details regarding the next Vancouver Pen Club meeting:

Date: Thursday April 17, 2008
Time: 6:00 pm -- "Meet & Greet"; 6:30 pm-- Start of meeting
Place: Perks pen store, 5844 Cambie St (at 42nd), Vancouver, BC, Canada
Theme: Newest Acquisitions (ie. anything related to writing instruments---new pens, interesting paper, cool inks, etc.)

We are a very casual club---it doesn't matter if you have one pen... or one hundred pens! As long as you have some enthusiasm for the hobby and a love of writing instruments, that's all that matters.

Our thanks go out to Richard Clarke of Perks, once again, for his gracious hospitality. Our meetings start during the dinner hour, so members are welcome to bring takeout food and drinks into the store. Purchases can be made after the meeting, in case anything you see in the store strikes your fancy (as an aside, Richard's Perks store carries the Noodler's line of fountain pen inks).

Our meetings usually last two to two and a half hours but if you can't quite make it on time, or have to leave early, please come anyway :)

Hope to see a good turnout!

Looking forward to that Maja. There's always something new, and last meeting was particularly interesting to listen to Derek's impromptu but very informative 'brief history of modern pen collecting'. I'm only sorry I wasn't able to stay till the end. See you soon.
