Some photos from our September meeting

Great turnout for the September 15th meeting---14 VPC members (including two new members--Sam and Dexter) and two guests (Tim & Elena Sawyer, who came all the way from Hawaii!). Tim and Elena brought macadamia nut treats, and even remembered to bring some "long-short"-style Japanese fountain pens for our theme's show & tell! We saw many examples of beautiful pens made by Nakaya, Pilot, Platinum & Sailor brought in by our members. Many thanks to all who attended!

Our next meeting is scheduled for Thursday October 20th at Perks pen store (usual place & time). Theme: Non-Parker British Pens (some examples are: modern/vintage Conway Stewart, Onoto & Yard-o-Led pens, as well as pens by vintage makers Burnham, Croxley, Kingswood, Mabie-Todd, Mentmore, Osmiroid, Platignum, Stephens, Summit, Wyvern & others). Thanks to our friends at the London Pen Club in Ontario for the theme idea!
