Does anyone know the date, time, and location (in the Marriott Fairview Park) of the Black Pen Society meeting at the DC Show?

 

Thanks!

I keep waiting for the Poobah to declare a blue ink meeting.

San Francisco International Pen Show - They have dates! August 23-24-25, 2019 AND August 28-29-30, 2020. Book your travel and tables now! My PM box is usually full. Just email me: my last name at the google mail address.

Considering the large influx of younger people in the hobby, I understand that there is going to be a joint meeting of the Purple Pen Society and the Purple Ink Society at the DC show. I don't know the details. I think I read about it somewhere.

Fortunately I’m not going so I won’t need to skip this purple event.

Let's not be dismissive. I'm not going to the show, either, but I would be consumed with eagerness to attend a joint meeting of the Purple Pen Society and the Purple Ink Society.


I envision practically a civil war between the folks who think it's totally cool to match a purple pen with purple ink, problem solved, next! and other people who might think it extremely limiting to box yourself in by using only purple ink in a purple pen.


No fist fights, I trust, but those are two seriously opposed perspectives.


What we really need, though, is to create a critical mass of interest in the two Societies, so we can nudge them from one kind of reality to another.

I do hope the Black Pen Society was able to convene and to ensure the pin for this year was discussed and a new 2020 designer identified by the Grand PooBah. As a Knight for BPS here in Canada I do send my regrets and I hope to attend in 2020 even if I have to drive from Saskatchewan.

I too was sad to miss the 2019 meeting in DC. I do hope a better venue was found so that the Grand Poobah and other speakers could be heard and understood. I'll be back next year.

Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.
