Happy to shout out to the pen community here in Saskatchewan, Canada and offer to organize a pen get together in either Saskatoon or Regina in June or July.

The folks at Soul Paper in Saskatoon may be prepared to host on premises and Paper Umbrella may assist with some social media sharing of an event if in Regina.

Knowing the community is smaller but mighty and that a monthly event is not getting traction I am suggesting a June event and January event annually as an opportunity to meet.

The Regina pub event in 2017 was well attended. The Pub had a number of different beers on tap and a nice large table for everyone. The concern was it was loud and perhaps too noisy so open to suggestions for a coffee spot, restaurant or pub in either city.

The group I met has both fountain pen interests and is also quite interested in stationary and art hobbies so there is a range of possibilities to come and visit, share your ideas, and meet new like minded people.

Some of the least expensive pens can be the most interesting to have conversations about such as the retro Conklin Crescent fill pen.

So if you are interested lets share ideas here and figure this out.

Thanks to the three other brave souls who attended the event last night at the Hotel Saskatchewan for appetizers, a drink and a chance to visit and talk about our hobby.

This Mont Blanc wallet has been added to my everyday carrying and it is perfect for my small Mozart fountain pen. A small jot pad and room for drivers license and health card and a few business cards and banking cards.

Somehow, I never saw this thread before.

 

I'd definitely attend a Regina event, if it fit my schedule.  Unfortunately, until late April the only available days I have are Monday and Friday evenings or the weekends.


Too many pens; too many inks. But at least I've emptied two ink bottles now.

If it's after May 17, I won't be able to attend, unfortunately.  And still busy Tuesdays.  If it's outside those exclusions, I'm definitely going to try to attend, though.

I'll pencil it in!  I probably won't be able to make it until 5:30 as I'm not off work until 5.
