Info about our September meeting

Date: Thursday September 21, 2017
Time: 6:00pm to 9:00pm.
Place: The amenities room of the condominium located at 350 East 2nd Avenue in Vancouver, BC (on the south side of East 2nd Avenue, between Scotia & Brunswick, two & a half blocks east of Main Street). This is the same place we used for our May and July meetings.

Topic: "THEY DON'T FAKE 'EM LIKE THEY USED TO!" (knockoffs/clones/fakes/"tributes"). No limit to the # of pens you bring this time, because I am very curious to see any and all of them :) Oh, and just to give you an example, the Chinese-made Hero '616' fountain pen looks remarkably similar to the famous Parker '51', so it would fit the topic. We used this topic four years ago (July 2013), but Bruce suggested we reuse it, since we have so many new members.

Our secondary theme is always Newest Acquisitions, so if you have any new pens, ink or pen-related accessories, please bring them to the meeting. Don't worry if you don't have anything for either topic---just come to the meeting and see what others brought!
