If you look real quick you can see pictures of the KC pen collectors meeting touted by dava. They are currently on the third page of the Pentrace Message Board - who knows how long before they are bumped into oblivion.

In addition to pictures of such local luminaries as the ever photogenic dava and Sherrel Tyree there are a few pictures of pens.

Pictures of the October meeting are on Pendemoniums website in the Show photogallery

KC pictures

Frankly, calling this a club is a bit of hyperbole. It's only about a dozen of us who hang out one Saturday almost every other month, talk pens and eat donuts. We are really lucky to have a great store owner who spots us to donuts every meeting and sometimes donates prizes for a draeing. Very low key. Dennis Bowden and Sherrel provide a professional presence - and two nicer pen people you could not hope to meet.

Finally, in case this might be thought to be a case of shameless self promotion I hereby swear that I will never ever ever ever use Dennis picture of me as an avatar.

Oh no, the photo thread rolled off the Pentrace pages while I was offline for a couple of days and there are no captions indentifying who is who :(

I recognize Sam Fiorella--lady in pale blue blouse-- and Sherrel Tyree--lady in red t-shirt...They are both very nice people; I met them both in Portland last summer)....

I've done some business with Dennis Bowden and he is such a nice person, too but I've always wondered what he looked like :unsure: And where are you, Alex? And dava? HELP!

Thanks in advance,
Vancouver (B.C) Pen Club (our website)

Hi Maja

I am the redhead with the brown plaid shirt, sporting a handlebar mustache and Van Dyke standing next to Sam in the second photo on the first row. In the second row, fourth and fifth photo you will find Alex and I listening intently to Sam's lecture. Another noteworthy fellow in the very last photo is Dennis Bowden holding the hat while Sam pulls the door prize winners out of it.

I think that these photos can be seen in the last issue of the Pennant as well.
