For anyone in the Roanoke Virginia area, the Roanoke Pen Club is holding its next meeting on Saturday, March 17 at Tanglewood Mall in Roanoke, VA.  on the second floor of the mall at noon. There are chairs and tables on the second floor if you want to bring your lunch to the meeting. That is where we'll spread out our pens and inks and hold our meeting.

For your GPS:

4420-A Electric Rd
Roanoke, VA 24018


We will have a mix of vintage and modern fountain pens, discussions of pens and pen repair, and a lot of pens inked up to try out. Needless to say, the inked pens will have many different inks for you to try out.

These meetings are very informal, just for pen lovers to interface and share information.

 

Here is a web site for the club: http://roanokepenclub.org/

You can sign up for club emails and can contact Chad Trent from that site for further information.

The Roanoke Pen Club has a Google Group which you can join: https://groups.googl...oanoke-pen-club

 

Or, you can Private Message me here on FPN and I'll get back to you quickly.

Hope to see you on March 17, 2018. If it looks like the weather will be nasty we will postpone until another date, and I'll update this posting, so you might want to follow it.

 

Tom Johnson

 

PS

There are many places to eat around Tanglewood Mall, including an Applebee's at the mall entrance as well as a number of restaurants up and down Electric Road;  Rancho Viejo, a nice Mexican restaurant. A great upscale international restaurant is Montano's, very close to the mall. They open at 10:00 AM, some of us will be at Montano's between 10:30 and 11:00 for lunch if anyone wants to join us.
