May 2015 meeting details

Date: Thursday May 21, 2015
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: ~ Sets Appeal! ~ (Fountain Pen Sets)

Please bring fountain pen sets consisting of a modern or vintage fountain pen with a matching ballpoint/rollerball/mechanical pencil. In other words, a fountain pen has to be part of the set. Not that we are fountain pen snobs or anything...but we're primarily a fountain pen club and I'm sure we'll see more vintage sets this way as they often included a nice mechanical pencil. I have a vintage Sheaffer Touchdown triple set consisting of a fountain pen, ballpoint and mechanical pencil, so I will bring that with me. Many thanks to Mido for suggesting the theme idea; we actually did this one a few years ago, but we have lots of new members who weren't around back then so I'm glad someone thought of it.

As always, Newest Acquisitions is our secondary topic, so if you have some new-pen related stuff you want to show, please bring it with you. If you don't have anything for the topic--no worries, just come and see what others have brought. Hope to see you there!
