Any Interest In A Phoenix, Az Meet Up?



Recommended Posts

**(I saw that there was a area for local clubs I'm not sure if that gets as much views as this post so if the admin would like to change it that's fine but I would like to leave at work it's attention)**

 

Hello, I'm Treyy and I would like to know if there's any interest in having a Phoenix meet up to get together and meet each other, and compare pens, or anything else pen related. If so, would a weekday lunch work or would a weekend be preferred?. Please let me know here and I hope to find enough interest to have the get together.

It seems like us AZ peeps are in short supply on here, or pretty quiet. I would love to met other FP freaks for sone pen ogling/chatting. With the hectic schedules we might have to shoot for a decent date right after Thanksgiving. I live in Chandler but have transpo and have every Weds off as well as every other weekend. I am totally down for a meet!

I'd imagine there's some sort of pen club in Phoenix, no?

There is one in Dallas led by Mike Walker, very nice guy. I found out about it at the Paradise pen store here, so maybe you could find out at a pen store if there's one near you.

Best of luck at your meet ups, take care!:)

I'm not in Phoenix anymore, but before I left I met up with FPNer Troy ("Tringle") and we had a bunch of pen-fun, you should message him; he expressed interest in this a short while back.

Count me in folks, I'm in PV (Tatum 'n Shea), but will travel anywhere. I'm on the road a great deal, but name the time/place :)

I'd have to drive down from Prescott for a meet, but would be willing to do so if there is going to be a good-sized gathering. As such, a central or northern metro area would be appreciated. I could even host a meetup here in the summer at some point to give you all a chance to escape the heat, if you're interested. There are enough AZ based people on FPN that I think it could turn into something. I recall that Chatterley (Bryant) offered to attend a get together when it was discussed in the past (there is another thread in the 'meetings' section where this has been previously floated out there as an idea). EDIT: couldn't find it, so maybe I am not remembering correctly...

 

A weekend would be preferable for me (I work), though I can probably swing a Friday as well, with some advance notice.

 

I'll keep watching this thread.

There has been some discussion at several pen shows about trying for some Arizona pen get togethers, perhaps rotating them in various parts of Arizona quarterly to make it easier for people to come from various parts of the state. Tucson does have a group of pen people that get together. I'd be willing to host if anyone wants to meet up in Kingman sometime in January, but it would have to be a Saturday or Sunday because too crazy during the week.

 

Editing to add that you may just want to email me if interested because I don't get to this forum as often as some! sam@pendemonium.com

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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.
