Seeking - Central Illinois Fpen Fans

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to find Fountain Pen users in the Central Illinois Area. It's not always convenient to travel to Chicago Land, St. Louis, Mo, or Indianapolis, IN to meet other pen lovers and fans. I know there are folks out there who use and collect fountain pens, I've either met or talked with at other events.


My focus on collecting and using has been all over the various brands of pens from the US, and around the world, however the last few years I have focus'd primarily on using rather than collecting. I'm seeking others who are interested in sharing their loving interest in this medium of communication. Either on a personal correspondence (penpals) or in the possibility of forming a group to meet either on a regular basis or on a mutually agreed upon schedule to fit everyone's favor. My most recent collecting has been focus'd on Pelikan pens.


I am aware of a group called Central Illinois Pen Club that had at one time been meeting in Champaign/Urbana. My personal interest would be more towards a group that would meet in places on a rotating basis giving every one the opportunity to have a meeting in their area so the travel time and expense is shared by the entire group. All meetings to be in public areas unless otherwise agreed upon.


If you are interested in something along these lines, let's give it a go, at least to discuss the possibilities. Or any other feasible opportunities mutually agreed upon. There are also various types of "Chat-rooms" available for meetings.


Fair winds and following seas.

Reposted from the above thread re: "Peoria, IL".


We have a nice club in Champaign, IL called "Pen Central". In fact, we are meeting tonight at 7:00 PM at the News Gazette Building in downtown Champaign.

If you are in the area, feel free to join us or contact me for further information and I will put you in touch with one of the officers.

Topic for this evening is "Do expensive pens really write better than inexpensive pens? Bring your limited editions and Esterbrooks, etc. and we'll compare and find out".
