From L-R: Loan, Bruce, Tim (holding up his beloved Pelikan "Pelikano" :), Ralph, Bill K, Maja, Chris L, Mike, Aftaab, Julienne, Brian, Charles, Barry, Gordon, Graham and Glenn (photo by Derek L--not pictured). Also not pictured : Bill S and our meeting host - Richard. (click on photo to enlarge)

A total of 19 Vancouver Pen Club members showed up at the January 21st meeting---a new VPC record! Mike gave an excellent talk on industrial designers and writing instruments (many thanks, Mike!) and we had excellent participation with regard to our meeting theme -"First Pens". From the trusty Parker 45 to the ubiquitous Sheaffer Cartridge Pen, from the under-rated Sheaffer NoNonsense to the lovely Parker 75 and English school pens by Osmiroid & Platignum (and many more pen brands), we heard about and/or saw them all! Many thanks to all who showed up for this meeting; it was a great start to the VPC 2010 pen club season.Next meeting is scheduled for Thursday February 18th, 2010. Theme: to be announced....
