I have been waiting for this to start up but I think instead of waiting for somebody else to do the initial effort that I would do that instead. I live on the north side of Brisbane and would like to start one up at say the Coffee Club at Aspley. I'm lucky enough to be a stay at home Mum to a 3 year old so it all depends on others to the day and time but I'm open to a weeknight around 7ish. Let's get this meeting group off the ground and started. Look forward to any interest :)

There are more from Brisbane but they just have to notice this post first :) If anyone sees this and knows someone from Brisbane on FPN please let them know and we can get this started. Aussies can do better than just one pen group in the country :thumbup:

Alternatively, just let us know when you're coming, and we'll arrange a meeting!

That'll be four of us . . .

Another Brisbane resident checking in. I live near the CBD & would be very interested in a pen club meeting - daytime also suits me.

Surely we can organise something?

Ex-bris girl - I'm in Melbourne now ( well for the last 20 years...) but travel to brisvegas to see family.
I'm glad there are some members in brissie.
Does the heat / humidity affect your pens and ink?

I keep my more expensive inks in my climate controlled wine storage cabinet during summer as my study gets quite warm...
