Some photos from our September 2009 meeting

We had a good turnout for our September 17th meeting. A grand total of 10 members (including 3 newcomers--Loan, Bruce R. and Vikram, who was visiting from Seattle) showed up and a good time was had by all. Our next meeting will be held on Thursday October 15th at 6:30pm, at the usual place--Perks pen store by Oakridge Mall. Topic/theme: TBA.

Many thanks to everyone who attended the first VPC meeting of the season last Thursday, and to our host Richard Clarke, who generously donated a Cross inkwell set for our door prize draw (which was won by Vikram!).

Start of a New (pen club) Season!

Our next meeting will be as follows:
Date: Thursday 17 September 2009

Time: 6:00pm-6:30pm (time to get food and "meet & greet"); 6:30pm-8:30pm meeting (approx.)

Location: Perks pen store---5844 Cambie Street (@ 42nd Ave.) in Vancouver, across from Oakridge Centre mall.

The theme for this meeting will be "AUTUMN PENS" (thanks to Graham for the suggestion!), so please bring any brown, yellow, red and/or orange pens (or combination thereof) you would like to show, and/or any new or old writing-instrument-related acquisitions such as pens, paper, ink, etc.

For the 2009/2010 meeting year, we will continue to meet at Perks on the third Thursday of every month from September through May (no meeting in December). Many thanks, as always, to Perks' owner Richard Clarke, for his gracious hospitality.

Looking forward to seeing all of you at our meeting next Thursday!
