Dear pen friends in the Netherlands,

I think it’s about time we set up a pen club. I have been reading about other pen clubs and their meetings/activities in cities around the world and have been tossing the idea around.
I am not exactly sure of the details, locations, etc, but as a starting point it would be nice to see how many of us out there would be interested to participate in a pen focused club.
Once we know how many of us are willing to participate we can discuss the details.

Let me know what you all think!

Thank you,

Nikolaos

Hi Lennard,

thanks for your message. I remember reading that thread a while back. I totally missed the initial posting though. I think we can put together a good group of people and get this off the ground!

Thanks,

Nikolaos

That would be so terrible! Always looking forward to that for a year....

Would it be possible to send a message to all active FPN members from The Netherlands? Good chance that they won't see this thread and they'll miss out on this (and so we will too)?

I think it would be great to start a penclub and have meetings from time to time to talk about (and show/try) pens, inks and anything that's interesting :)

Hi Lennard,

These days are ok by me. I was just thinking that perhaps we could meet in a more central place, like den Haag or Amsterdam and so on. I drive a lot so i don't driving to Laren but it might be a bit difficult for others

What do you guys think?

I think you mean March 12th and April 9th?
Both of these days are fine with me too.

I'd vote for a place reachable by train, so I'd feel more for Den Haag or Amsterdam too. Or Utrecht because that's better to reach for people from the north?
