September meeting details

We're back to our regular themed meetings next month, so here are the details about our September meeting:

Date: Thursday September 19, 2013
Place: Perks pen store at 5844 Cambie Street, Vancouver, BC (ie. the usual place)
Time: 6:30pm-8:30pm ("early birds" welcome at 6:00pm to chat before the meeting).
Theme: "Most frustrating fountain pen & most improved pen".
Thanks to Graham and Anne for this topic idea! Please bring the fountain pen that has been the biggest problem for you from the day you got it (e.g. a "hard-starting" pen, a pen with a scratchy nib or flow issues, etc) as well as a pen that has been made to write properly, either through your own efforts, or a professional's. I love hearing stories about other people's fountain pens, and I think I'm not alone in that regard :)
Our secondary theme is always "Newest Acquisitions", so if you have a new pen/ink or some cool new fountain-pen-friendly paper to show us, please bring it/them along.
