That's depressing.

Oakman's is gone.... I ran into the guy who ran it. I had no idea it was gone until I needed refills..... :wallbash:

 

It's kind of a good thing for me, I'd of likely bought half the store....

 

I'd love to meet and talk pens once in a while, but I've got the two job thing going, so not much spare time....

Is there still interest in meeting?

 

I think I'm the only one in Carson. I'm happy to drive to Reno.

 

It seems there's one vote for Tuesday after work.

 

That will work for me. Anyone else?

Help, amberleadavis!

 

I'm trying to send a PM to the Reno folks in this thread and I'm getting a message that I can't send until August 11. It is August 11.

 

Is there a fix?

 

Thanks,

 

Diane

Just wait until later in the day.

 

I think the new system has some sort of new user PM limit.

I wish there were that many of us. I get comments from Millenials here when I'm using a fp, "What is that thing?"

MEETING...

Hello everyone, I was talking to sashimimi earlier today about getting together with any FP afficionado from around here.

We were talking about meeting next Saturday (10/4/2014) at 2pm ant the Bibo's coffeshop near the UNR campus.

If you are interested in grabbing a cup of coffee and talk about pens/inks/paper let me know....Also if that time does't work let me know too and see if can find a way around it.

Cheers

If you can't make it on 10/4, please post a better time for you. The more of us the merrier (and some ink stained fingers too). I'll bring stuff to clean up after ourselves.

I am excited for tomorrow, Talked to Beerman in the hall the other day, and we can at least show off some pens (though my visconti is still missing!!!).  There is another person we work with who is turning pens, and has expressed interest, but of course I forgot to tell him about it.  I will email him now.

I think the first meeting of the Reno Fountain pen club was a success.

We had a great time talking about pens and trying pens and inks.
