Last meeting of 2019!


We normally don't meet in December (due to the holidays), but I thought we'd do it this year in case the VPC limited edition pens that many of us ordered arrive in time for our meeting.

When: THURSDAY December 19 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm (don't worry if you're late, as we usually start at around 6:30 pm). Please note: this meeting falls on a Thursday, not a Friday.

Where: A meeting room (the Strathcona room) in a smaller building located next to Vancouver City Hall, 453 W. 12th, Vancouver, BC (on the corner of W. 12th and Cambie).

Full information about the location was in the group emails sent out to VPC members.
If you wish to attend but are not a member yet, please contact us at for more info re: the location.

Parking: There is free parking along Cambie Street after 6:00pm, or in the underground parking at the VanCity Building at 10th & Yukon when VanCity is closed. Parking along Yukon Street is $2.00 per hour.

Topic/Theme: Pens and/or Inks that are named for, or remind you of specific places (cities/countries, buildings, landscapes, etc.) Please try to limit it to 3-4 items per person, due to time restraints. We've never done this topic before, so many thanks to Jerred for the idea.

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

FOUNTAIN PEN SWAP! For our December meeting, I thought we might liven things up by doing something we've only done once before. It's 100% voluntary, so if you wish to participate, here's how it works: if you have an inexpensive fountain pen (maximum value $20-$25 + in good working order) that you don't want or need, wrap it in some gift paper (it doesn't have to be fancy), bring it to the December meeting, toss it into the basket, get a "ticket", and then pick out another wrapped pen from the basket later in the meeting.

Hope you can make it to our next meeting! No need to RSVP for this meeting or any other not held at a restaurant. Any questions or concerns? Please let me know at
