Are you from Northern / Central NJ (or New York) and would love to attend the Washington DC Pen Supershow this August?

We are looking to create the opportunity for you, and other pen lovers from the area, to take a day trip down to Sheraton's Premier in Vienna, VA to attend the United States' largest fountain pen exhibition on Saturday, August 11th. The proposed trip would depart at 6am Saturday morning from the Goldspot office at 1230 Highway 34, Aberden, NJ [Exit 120 on the Parkway] to arrive at the show around 10am. See the show, buy some pens, try some ink and go see the sights in DC. Come back to the Sheraton for a 5pm departure back to NJ. Depending on traffic, we would probably arrive back in Aberdeen around 9-9:30pm. It would be a nice, long day of drooling over pens, meeting folks who also love pens and...more pens.

We are currently sourcing and pricing charter buses in the area. In order to get an exact idea of price per person, we need your help to come up with an approximate head count. All we ask is for people who are interested in joining our pilgrimage is to comment below. There is no financial commitment at this point, we are just looking to gauge the interest of the local pen community. Once we have an idea of how many people we can expect, we will be able to provide pricing and flesh out the details. The timing and departure location is not set in stone, so if you are interested, but the schedule does not work for you, please advise what would best work for you.

If you have any other questions regarding the proposed trip, please feel free to comment or send me a direct PM.

All the Best,

Tom @ Goldspot Pens

Great idea and plan; would love to do this with your group; however, we love this show and plan to attend multiple days, thus, won't work for us this time. Hope you get a great group together and get folks to wear FPN buttons so can find each other.

Manny! Thanks for the handwritten vote. Although, as you can imagine by the lack of replies on this thread, we haven't had many takers on this opportunity. I'm still leaving the idea open since we have a few months to go, yet. Next time you stop by, I have a small gift for you. :0)
