    Vancouver Pen Club ~MAY 2019 meeting info:

    Date: Thursday May 16, 2019

    Time: 6:00pm to 8:30pm (Don't worry if you're late---we usually start at around 6:30 )

    Place: The OAKRIDGE branch of the Vancouver Public Library, located at 650 West 41st Avenue, Vancouver, BC
    The entrance to the library is on the outside of Oakridge Mall (on the west side of the mall, near the fish market). Parking at the mall is free for 3-4 hours and plentiful. The meeting will take place in their community room---you can't miss it, as it's the only meeting room at that library branch. No food (except covered drinks) allowed in the library, but there's a food fair inside Oakridge Mall (Safeway sells some fast food--chicken, fries--too) where you can grab a bite to eat before the meeting.

    Topic: FOUNTAIN PENS WITH UNUSUALLY-SHAPED NIBS (integrated nibs, inlaid nibs, semi-hooded or hooded nibs, conical nibs & others!)

    If you're not sure what that means, there is a nice list of integrated/inlaid/semi-hooded/hooded nibs here at http://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/117410-inlaidhooded-nibs-pens-list/?p=2586653 (it's an old post so there are newer examples not on that list---e.g. some newer brands of Chinese-made pens). Other examples of oddly-shaped nibs that would fit our topic are the modern Conklin pen company's "Omniflex" nib (which is harpoon-shaped) and the beak-shaped nib on Pilot's "Falcon" fountain pen. As for conical nibs, the Sheaffer fountain pens with "Triumph" nibs are great examples. Please try to limit what you bring to just a few examples per person.

    Our secondary topic is always Newest Acquisitions, so if you have any new pens, ink or pen-related accessories (e.g. pen cases), please bring them with you to show.

    No need to RSVP for any regular meeting not held at a restaurant!
