March meeting details

March 2017 meeting details:

Date: Thursday March 16, 2017
Time: 6:00pm to 8:30pm (and we have to leave the room by 8:30pm sharp).
Place: The Community Room (Meeting Room) of the Vancouver Public Library's Oakridge branch (at the back of Oakridge Mall), 650 West 41st Avenue, Vancouver, BC (ie. the same room in which we had our January meeting).
Topic: "ALTERED STATES OF REALITY"--- fountain pens with modified nibs.
The nibs can be narrowed, widened, stubbed, italicized, tuned, polished or with added flex---pretty much any nib that's not OOB (out-of-the-box). Many thanks to Bruce for the topic idea! Our secondary theme is always Newest Acquisitions, so if you have any new pens, ink or pen-related accessories, please bring them with you to show.

Also, we're going to redo the Ink Swap---we kind of ran out of time last month, so if you have any ink(s) you wish to trade (bottles don't have to be full, cartridges are OK), please bring them with you. It's all voluntary, of course---if you want to keep all your inks, that's perfectly fine. If you don't have any pens for the topic(s), don't worry---just come anyway and see what other members have brought for the show & tell :)
