October meeting details

When: Thursday October 18, 2018 from 6:00pm to 8:30pm
(Don't worry if you're late---we usually start at around 6:30)

Where: the KITSILANO branch of the Vancouver Public Library at 2425 Macdonald Street (between Broadway and West 8th), Vancouver, BC
The meeting will take place in the community/meeting room on the lowest level of the library basement. This is where our club met in July.

Theme : OPEN FORMAT! We had sparse attendance for the September meeting (due to the rain, I suspect), so we're going to continue this theme in October :) Please bring whatever pen-related stuff you want to show that you haven't brought to a previous meeting and shown to the club. It can be pens, inks, pen accessories, etc. It's open format, so it's up to you what you bring! Oh and please try to limit it to 2 - 3 items per person, so we don't run out of time :)

Our secondary topic is always NEWEST ACQUISITIONS (pen-related)---eg. new pens/inks/paper/pen cases/other accessories/etc, so if you have any you wish to show, please bring them with you.
