July meeting details


When: Thursday July 18 from 6:00pm to 8:30pm (please note: the 8:30pm is a strict deadline by which we have to leave). Don't worry if you're late-we usually start at around 6:30 pm.

Where: the KITSILANO branch of the Vancouver Public Library located at 2425 Macdonald Street (between Broadway and West 8th) in Vancouver. The meeting will take place in the Branch Meeting room in the library's basement (this is where our club met in January and March of this year). No food or drinks allowed, but covered drinks are ok.

Parking: There is free parking in front of, and at the side of the library, as well as on residential streets (please check signs for parking limits/regulations) and the Safeway parking lot (again---please check the signs for parking limits/regulations). Parking on West Broadway is metered parking, I believe.

Topic/Theme : ASTRONOMICAL! (large fountain pens & any type of pens relating to space/astronomy)

Definition of astronomical:
adjective: astronomical
relating to astronomy.
(of an amount) extremely large

In honour of the 50th anniversary of the Lunar Landing (July 20, 1969), we will be featuring "astronomical" writing instruments--ie. big fountain pens---modern or vintage---and any pens (ie. ballpoints/fountain pens/rollerballs) relating to astronomy/space. Please limit what you bring to 3-4 items per person for our theme/topic, due to time limitations. Many thanks to Jerred for suggesting large fountain pens as a topic. I also wanted to include space pens in July's meeting and the word "astronomical" fortuitously popped into my head, giving me an idea for a theme that included both :)

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.

Hope you can make it to our July meeting! No need to RSVP for any meeting/event unless it's being held at a restaurant.
