VPC annual summer dinner at Moxie's!

(click on photo to enlarge)

What a great time at the VPC annual summer dinner at Moxie's tonight! Many thanks to everyone for chipping in for my meal, as well as our pen club host Richard's; the sentiment was much appreciated, and the food (and company, of course!) was excellent. Our waiter Adam snapped this photo of us and it turned out to be the very last photo saved on my camera's memory card---good timing!
Next meeting: Thursday September 15th (6:30pm-8:30pm) at Perks pen store, 5844 Cambie Street, Vancouver (our usual place). Meeting theme/topic will be Japanese Pens.

For trade Nakaya portable writer

Hello Folks, well I am going to put my Nakaya up for trade again, would prefer a straight trade but would consider a sale as well.

I am sure most of you have seen my Nakaya, purchased from John Mottishaw with his lovely custom double broad stub flexible nib. My pen is in the very dark black/red finish and comes with the kimono but no box.

I am looking for a Cartier fountain pen, preferably the Diablo but will consider others and must be in good to mint condition.

thanks so much, hope your all having a lovely summer!
