Happy New Year! (and new meeting announcement)

Now that the holiday season is behind us, we are resuming our monthly Vancouver Pen Club meetings, starting with this Thursday's meet-up:

Date: Thursday 15 January 2009
Time: 6:00pm - "Meet & Greet"; 6:30pm - Start of meeting
Location: Perks pen store on Cambie @ 42nd St, across from Oakridge mall
Theme: Industrial designers and the pens they created (***See list in post above and please bring any examples to the meeting***)

We are very pleased to announce that Mike A. has kindly agreed to do a short presentation on this topic at this Thursday's meeting, so I hope we get a good turnout.
As always, if you have any new writing instruments/ inks/paper/ephemera that you've recently acquired, please bring them to the meeting for our informal "Show & Tell".

Hope to see you there!

Hello Mike,

I have at least one Eversharp Skyline I can bring. If I dig around a bit, I may find others in various states of repair. I might be able to show folks the inner workings of the Skyline -- strikingly new on the outside, but basic pen construction on the inside.

Great, Tim! I have a couple of Skylines--one fountain pen and one ballpoint that was converted to take modern refills. See you on Thursday! ~Maja
