Date: Thursday August 19, 2010

Time 6:30pm-8:30pm (if you'd like to come a bit early to socialize, that's perfectly fine, too!)

Location: Perks pen store, 5844 Cambie Street(@ 42nd Ave.) in Vancouver, B.C, across from Oakridge Mall (and just one block from the "Oakridge-41st Ave" Skytrain stop)

The theme for this meeting will be "PARKER BY THE NUMBERS" (many thanks to Michael for another great meeting theme/topic). As many of you know, the Parker Pen Company produced many numbered pen models, such as the famous Parker '51' pen as well as the later classics such as the Parker '61', '45' and '75' (among others). If you have any examples of numbered Parker models (fountain pens/pencils/ballpoints), please bring them with you to the meeting to show. Numbered models include the: 15, 17, 19, 21, 25, 35, 41, 45, 50, 51, 61, 65, 71, 75, 85, 88, 95, 100, 105 and 180. is a great website run by Parker expert Tony Fischier that has entries for all of the above Parker models (and many, many more) and is very useful and informative.

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.
