I've not heard of one in Peoria. There was one more downstate but I'm thinking at least an hour east of you - maybe it was Bloomington? I haven't heard of them meeting lately either. If you get one going maybe I can coincide it with a visit to my brother in Pekin. Good luck!

In Fort Madison (about 2 hours from Peroria) at the Sheaffer Pen Museum we have a meeting every 2nd Thursday. I believe August we are having a Picnic for former employees. We are also open 10-2 Monday and Friday, and would be glad to have you come if you haven't.

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".

Hey, that sounds like a great group, and I have Esterbrooks and plenty of inexpensive pens that write as well as the expensive ones. I bet you had a good meeting with that topic. I would be interested in knowing about the next time you folks meet. Thanks!

I moved to Illinois recently from California and would love to visit the Sheaffer museum. Thanks for the invite!

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
