June 2010 meeting details

Well, we've decided to go with monthly meetings during the summer months, so here are the details re: the upcoming June meeting:

Date: Thursday June 17, 2010

Time 6:00pm-6:30pm ("meet & greet"); 6:30pm-8:30pm (approx.) meeting

Location: The usual place---Perks pen store at 5844 Cambie Street (@ 42nd Ave.) in Vancouver, across from Oakridge Mall (one block from the "Oakridge-41st Ave" Skytrain stop)

The theme for this meeting will be FOUNTAIN PEN FILLING SYSTEMS (suggested by VPC member Bruce R---thanks for the idea, Bruce!). Please bring examples of fountain pens with various filling systems/mechanisms---eg. cartridge/converter-fillers, piston-fillers, lever-fillers, button-fillers, eyedropper-fillers, aerometric-fillers, Snorkel-fillers, Touchdown-fillers, Vacumatics ..the list goes on and on!

Our secondary theme is always NEWEST ACQUISITIONS so if you have any new pen-related items (pens, inks, paper, accessories) you'd like to show, bring them to the meeting.

Thanks in advance and hope to see you on the 17th!
