I think everyone enjoyed the theme of our April meeting, which was 'desk sets and accessories'. The counter of Richard's store was a forest of pens!

April showers bring....another VPC meeting! (details below)

Important preamble---In the past, we have not held meetings in June, July or August (due to members' summer vacation plans), however, based on recent feedback from our membership, we are considering having at least one meeting (if not more) during the summer months. Please check this blog regularly for changes to our current schedule and/or meeting location.

Now, here are the details re: April's meeting!

Date: Thursday April 15, 2010
Time: 6:00pm-6:30pm (time to get food and "meet & greet"); 6:30pm- 8:30pm (meeting).

Location: Perks pen store at 5844 Cambie Street (@ 42nd Ave), Vancouver, BC
(one block from the "Oakridge-41st Ave" Skytrain stop)

The theme for this meeting will be "DESK PENS & ACCESSORIES (eg. inkwells, blotters, etc)", another topic suggested by VPC member Michael, who came up with last month's topic of Pen & Pencil Sets. Some of these items can be a bit heavy/unwieldy (not to mention fragile), so please don't feel pressured to lug your most cherished pieces to the meeting. If you don't have any desk pens or accessories in your pen collection---no problem; I'm sure other members will bring plenty of examples. 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 for us to see.
Hope you can make it to the meeting!
