I am newer to the FP world and am wondering if there are people in Columbus, Ohio who would like to start a group?  I went to the Cincinnati group's meeting on Saturday and would love to meet with people closer to home!  I am happy to do all of the planning and organizing to get the group going.  I figure we can meet and talk pens, ink, paper, and anything else that strikes our fancy.  Thanks so much!!

I'd certainly come.

 

There was a thread on this subject a while back, and a fair number of Columbus area people were interested, but apparently nobody wanted to do the work of organizing a meeting.

Awesome!  Would you be available on April 22, from 10-12?  I can reserve a room at the Westerville Public Library :)

Don't forget the pen show in Dublin every November.  Usually the first weekend.

April 22 works for me, too.  I'll see if I can find that old thread where other Columbus people expressed interest in a meeting.

Awesome!!  I will go ahead and place a reservation request for the conference room at the Westerville Library!  I will also try to get the word out locally at Robert Mason and Vintage Fountain Pens!

Great!  I hope to make this a monthly or bi-monthly gathering!  I hope to post info here and will probably make a Facebook group.

Here is an FPN thread in which a bunch of Columbus area people expressed interest in possibly forming a group.

We had a meeting in May and another just yesterday.  We expect it to be a monthly event.

 

Anyone interested please send me your name and email and I will add you to our contact list so you will receive notice of future events.
