Let's Create A Sacramento Area Pen Posse!



Recommended Posts

There is currently no group for those of us in the Sacramento area who love fountain pens, so let's create our own group!

 

I think first we need to figure how many folks are in the area that would be interested in meeting.

 

Then we can select a date, time and location to meet.

 

I don't mind helping organize some of the details; but I would just love to hear feedback from those of you who live in the area and would be interested in getting together.

 

If anyone is interested in being involved in a FPN group here in Sacramento please let us hear your thoughts!

A lot of PPPC members live in the greater Sacramento area. The Pan Pacific Pen Club meets 4 times a year in a place that is equally inconvenient for all members. The meetings are like mini pen shows. You could also car pool to a Pen Gathering in Millbrae since several regular participants are from the area.

San Francisco International Pen Show - The next great pen show is on schedule for August 27-28-29, 2021. If we all do what we need to do...you can Book your travel and tables and make SF 2021 the Return. 
 

 My PM box is usually full. Just email me: my last name at the google mail address.

Thank you for the info!

Is there a place that lists the dates and locations for the meetings?

I find that most of the events are announced on the internet, usually on the pen related forums like FPN and FP Geeks.

 

There is a PPPC email list as well. If you email me I can ask the guys that run the club to put you on the list.

 

The PPPC sets meeting dates roughly once a quarter with an eye to avoid national shows and events. The Posse is more of a flash mob thing, sometimes meeting with little or no notice. They use a book of faces to communicate.

 

AC12 announced there would be a meeting this Sunday the 17th of August 2014.

I would like to be on the email list, thank you! I tried to pm you but for some reason it wouldn't let me send it.

 

What is the fb group name?

 

Nuts! I am visiting family this weekend through next weekend. I guess the timing really didn't work out.

Hi!

 

I live in West Sac. Let me know when and where there is a Sac posse.

 

If you can make it to SF, the pen show is Aug 22-24!

 

If there are people interested, I still think it would be fun to have a little gathering locally in Sacramento. I know for me traveling is VERY difficult as I have two children and taking a day trip by myself is not a viable option for me.

 

Even if there are just two or three of us we could still get together I think. :)

 

 

Unfortunately I can't make it to the SF pen show. I will be going south to visit family.

The beauty part of Pen Posse is that anyone can call one.

 

Name a place, date, and time - and show up.

 

Make sure to pick a place where you wouldn't mind spending an hour or so alone, with your pens, that way if no one shows up, you will still enjoy an hour.

 

Report back about your experience. Eventually, to paraphrase A Field of Dreams, if you call a Pen Posse, they will come.


There are a few lovely folks up your way, who even make the trek to San Francisco or (more typically) Millbrae. I'm thinking they would show up.

Try it!

How old are the kids? FarmKid usually participates so you can bring them along, he will show them how to play Angry Birds or fix a pen.

My daughter is almost 8 and my son is 5 1/2. My daughter would most likely be okay to come with me; she could read a book or color quietly. But my son does not like to sit still or be quiet, he is very active. :)

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
