I have noticed an increase in the number of Coloradans and was wondering how many people are interested in a Denver Pen Club.

I'd be interested if it could be held on a weekend. I'm too far away to do it on a week night. Maybe we could meet near Park Meadows Mall. Then, we could do "field trips" to the Paradise Pen store there. lticaptd.gif

Weekends work best for me as well as does south Denver. Paradise Pens sounds great also. I am on lines E, F, and H of the light rail and at least one of those lines goes to Park Meadows

I'm up north but I'd be glad to meet anywhere on the weekends. Paradise Pen would be fine by me, although I may have to leave the wallet at home.

The Park Meadows store is too small for very many people. Cherry Creek is much larger. Although Park Meadows has the Dinning area we could all hole up in.

That was kind of my thought. They would hardly notice if we commandeered a table. You are right about the store, though. If more than 2 or 3 people went in at once, one would hardly have room to turn around.

My wife and I went to Park Meadows today. If I'd had anyone's number, I would have called to suggest a meet and greet. Sadly, they didn't have any pen magazines in stock. I asked. On the bright side, I came away with a clear Lamy Vista fountain pen and a bottle of Private Reserve's purple mojo ink thanks to my lovely wife.

Now that I am back from college I would be interested. Is the club up and running?

If this is you, and the ink is in fine condition otherwise, don't dump it down the sink, or throw it into the trash, send it to me, and I will provide it a nice safe home with love, and a decent meal of paper! Please PM me!

Hi... I'm not really a "pen person" but my father in law left a fairly large collection of antique fountain pens ... Parker , Waterman, Shaffer and others... many dating back before my time...to the early 1900's. He was meticoulous about restoring them so many of them are in very good shape... and there are many parts as well. My wife and I and other siblings have kept a few mementos of the collection. I really think that these should some day really be put to good use by those who like these fine writing instruments. So we are looking for a place to 1. Value the collect and 2. ulitmately sell the majority of it ... Live in the Denver area and looking for some trustworth contacts to begin the process. I do have an inventory that he prepared a long time ago.

I'm in North Denver, too. If we met on a weekend, that'd work best for me. Hubby will probably join, so that's 2 of us.

Just saw the notice by chance; if it's still a possibility, I'd be interested. I live in Colo Springs but get to Denver regularly. One more trip wouldn't be a problem.

I work with Paradise Pen and we would be interested in coordinating with you on developing the club and providing a place for meetings. Let me know if you are interested and we can talk more.

I work in downtown Denver and live south. Park Meadows works great for me, I just purchased my first fountain pen there from Paradise Pens (Cross Century II). It would be the perfect excuse to get the converter (they were out) and a bottle or two of ink. Looks like this has dragged on for some time, but if anyone is interested in actually setting a date and time I'd do my best to make it.

I hate to necro a thread but I'm just starting into FPs and I'd really like this to happen. It would seem there's no shortage of people, just a lack of organisation...are people still interested in this?

I'm in Louisville, by the way, but am fluent with the bus system so I can make my way just about anywhere.

If this thread is still alive, yes, I would definitely be interested.

Centennial area half way between Southglenn and Park Meadows, although location isn't too important.

Park Meadows would be my vote-Paradise Pens and plenty of seating areas. Maybe instead of continuing the vague 'we should do this sometime', we need to just set a date and who can come, comes. And hopefully that would build into more regular meetings. Course the weather can be tricky this time of year. Maybe early afternoon the last Sat of Jan?
