Wasn't able to go this year, as I was out of the country; however, I went in 2009, and it was a great show. Not huge, but great people, some nice pens, and great pen fellowship. Hope to make it for 2011.

I'm confident we will be in Omaha well before then, but I plan to return for the show. It's a great time and growing. We have secured a much better venue this year and the show promised to be a wonderful time.

Please take note of the following changes to our upcoming pen how in 2011.


Instead of 1 2-day show, the Arkansas Pen Club was able to secure a 3-day pen show. In additon to that, we also secured a room for dealers and serious pen collectors to buy, trade, and barter on pens on Thursday afternoon.
Please see the revised official brochure of our pen show next year ...

As of right now, this moment...I'm not scheduled to work and was wondering about a few details.

I saw that the table cost is $75.00, is this per day cost or for the whole event?
Also, is a tax ID thing required?
And lastly, what size table does the $75.00 get a person?




Thanks

Scott,
Thanks for your inquiry. $75 per table is for the three-day show. They are 6" long.
No tax id required as some vendors are pure hobbists, not business entities.
I hope you are able to join us ... lots of fun, nice pen folks, and all kinds of fountain pens.

Just over a month away. Since selling a kidney seemed so drastic, now I am reduced to collecting pennies on the street to build up a stash for the show! :headsmack: :puddle:
