Daily Admission for General Public is $10.00 (children under 12 free)
Date: Thursday April 19, 2018 Time: 6:00pm to 8:30pm. Place: The OAKRIDGE branch of the Vancouver Public Library, located at 650 West 41st Avenue, Vancouver, BC (at the back of Oakridge mall -- note: the library has a separate entrance from the mall).
Topic: YOUR 3 FAVOURITE INKS...and our twice-annual INK SWAP! If you can, please bring inked pens (ie. 3 pens filled with your 3 favourite inks) to the meeting (they can be cheap pens, and if you don't have 3 favourite inks, you can bring fewer )
Ink Swap---this is completely voluntary, but if you do wish to trade, please bring your inks with you to the meeting. Ink cartridges are ok, and ink bottles don't have to be 100% full. Buying & selling inks is fine, too, but I'd suggest bringing cash if you are looking to buy ink.
Our secondary theme 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. Nothing to bring for the primary or secondary topics?? No worries---just come and see what other members have brought!
(No RSVPs required for any meeting, except for our annual Summer Dinner)
