November meeting info ~ last meeting of 2013!

Many thanks to all who attended our October meetup at the White Spot restaurant. We're back at Perks for our last meeting of 2013 (as we don't have meetings in December), so here are the details!

Date: Thursday November 21, 2013
Place: Perks pen store, 5844 Cambie Street, Vancouver, BC.
Time: 6:30pm-8:30pm
("early birds" welcome at 6:00pm to chat before the meeting)
Theme: "The Pens You'd Never Sell" (and Ink Swap--see below).
This is an old theme that Glenn C. suggested we bring back. Actually, our old topic was limited to just one pen ("The Pen You'd Never Sell"), but you can bring two pens this time :) Our secondary theme is always "Newest Acquisitions" (pen-related).

Ink Swap! We'll be having our twice-annual ink swap at the November meeting. It's completely voluntary, of course, so if you have any ink(s) you are not using and would like to trade with fellow member(s), this is your chance. Bottles do not have to be 100% full and ink cartridges are allowed.

Hope to see you at our November meeting! (no RSVPs required for meetings held at Perks)

Namaste from Nepal!

Just received an email with a letter from our pen club's founder, Tim Conklin, who is in Nepal visiting friends. Tim wanted me to share the letter with the members of our club, so here it is, written with a Parker '45' flighter fountain pen and Cross Black ink:
Thanks for the letter, Tim! Tim will be back in town for our November meeting, and I look forward to chatting with him about his adventures then.

Don't forget that our October meeting will be held next Thursday (October 17th) at the White Spot restaurant inside Oakridge Mall in Vancouver, BC. Meeting starts at 6:00pm and will go to about 8:30pm or so. Please RSVP (only if you'd like to attend) by October 12th at so we can save a seat for you. Our October topic/theme will be New Acquisitions (pen-related). Hope to see you there!
