The last meeting was February. So the next one will be...April the 13th. 

 

Paul, I'm not sure. I can ask my friend (ParkerPete) and see what he says.

Where do you meet. I am traveling to Melbourne from the United States and will be in the area on 13 April. Could someone from the states join your meeting for the day?

Best regards,
John

Hi John. 

 

Anyone and everyone is welcome to attend. If you can make it on the 13th, then the details are: 

 

The Tower Hotel. 

686 BURWOOD ROAD,

Hawthorn

Melbourne

(Postcode) 3123

 

We start at 6:30pm and have dinner there, and then just chat and show and tell and discuss stuff. Or we might have a speaker (depending on what's going on). And then finish around 9:30/10:00pm (or whenever they beg us to leave!!) 

 

Just go straight into the main dining-room and look around for a group of guys and girls with writing equipment (pens, paper, ink-bottles, antiques, etc) scattered all over the table. That'll be us.

Thank you to everyone who made an appearance at last night's meeting for April. We had such a large turnout!! We almost ran out of space! 

 

Thanks to John for his discussion on the trials and tribulations of repairing fountain pens. 

 

And thanks to Pam for showing me how to disassemble my antique propelling pencil! It worked!
