How long is the drive from Dallas?


So, what's your point? (Mine is a flexible F.)

It's about a 4.5 hour drive, depending on your starting point.

 

We would love to have you attend.

I've picked up a lot of fresh pens for the show and I'm looking forward to seeing old friends (you know who you are) and making new ones.  I look forward to repairing pens onsite again this year.

 

Regards,

Yes, it is definitely close enough!  :)   My wife and I visit Branson and Springfield often and that seems like an Sunday afternoon stroll. 

 

I don't believe you will be disappointed as there are a lot of things to see and do when you're not at the pen show.

Dear Friends,

 

Our show is right around the corner and I for one cannot wait to celebrate this year at the Wyndham.  Please join us for what will be a fun and informative show.  We will have a live folk combo on Saturday, Seminars on ink and fountain repair and whatever else a great time.

 

Please visit the website for more details and use the 2015 registration form for tables.  We have had the same table price of  100 bucks for the whole weekend since 1994 when Don and Betty Henderson asked Kent Krause and myself to take over the shows Mike Vanness had been hosting.  We will be at the North Little Rock Wyndham February 26, and 27, 2016.

 

If you have any questions or need help email me at gurufernando@yahoo.com

 

 

Happy Pen Hunting,

 

Fernando Padilla

Treasurer

Arkansas Pen Club

I'll be there again! I'll be picking up a grind from Shawn Newton, so I have a good excuse to drive 6 hours and spend some money.  :D

I'm in Missouri too, and Apple maps shows it's a 6 hour, 405 mile drive from suburban KC. I'm not going, though I'd like to one day. Is the weather usually good? I know that's hard to answer.

I've been to NW Arkansas, never to Little Rock.

Please share all about the show when it's over. I'd love to see photos of the tables and the haul those going bring home.
