Sorry I wasn't able to join everyone yesterday, as I was off to Stow all weekend photographing vintage motorcars.

As Jim indicated, I started a new thread - "Boston Pen People" - not long ago with the dates he and I had discussed through the end of this year. If the fourth Sunday every other month is a good schedule for the majority, I can extend it out through 2013. Most importantly, I also asked for suggestions for themes for upcoming meetings. There are two in the new thread for the August meeting.

This is doubly confusing to me, as (1) I did not know that there was any other thread concerning Boston-area meetings (and I don't see what is gained by starting one at this point, apart from making it more difficult for interested parties to obtain needed information), and (2) the schedule that I proposed, and with which Sunday's meeting conformed, was for a meeting on the third Sunday of every other month, not the fourth.

Edited to add: Having found the other thread (here), I think it would be a good idea to get this thread locked, as it seems to me that it can only create confusion to have two threads for meetings of the same group.

I can make the 3rd sunday in Aug, but not the 4th. Also, sorry if this thread caused confusion. I initially opened it so that I could find people in my area to have small get-togethers with. I didn't intend for this to interfere with anything the Boston Pen People club was doing.

WTT: Conklin Nozac Cursive Italic & Edison Beaumont Broad for Pelikan M1000 or Something Cool (PM me to discuss. It's part of my One Red Fountain Pen trading post)

 

WTB: 1. Camlin SD

2. 1950s to early 1960s 1st Gen MB 149 with BB nib

3. Airmail 90T Teal Swirl
