I. NEXT MEETING 12:-3:, Saturday July 29 at:
At the NORTH BRANCH of the BERKELEY LIBRARY (we’ve met here before)
NOTE – THIS MEETING IS ONE HOUR LATER THAN OUR NORMAL TIME
1170 The Alameda
Berkeley, CA 94707
New members are always welcome.
If you haven’t been to a pen club meeting before, it’s a great place to show off your collection, buy, sell or trade, or ask experts for collecting or repair advice. You can learn about that mystery pen you found. Or just soak up the inky ambience – lots of pens to look at, lots of people to ask questions about pens.
II. Meeting topics & The PPPC Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/PPPC1/
Of course, the usual topic is showing, trading, buying and selling pens. But at the end of our last meeting, some of us stayed around thinking about having a special topic at each meeting. For example – your favorite pens, interesting collecting interests, hardest to find, unidentified pens. If you want to speak, request a speaker or topic, or other suggestions – please post on the PPPC Facebook group. Or – you can comment on the meeting or topics at our official PPPC email address- firstname.lastname@example.org .
If you are not a member of the FB group, just ask and one of the moderators will approve.
The PPPC FB group is a great place to ask someone to bring a special pen or tool to the meeting, ask for some expert repair advice, or maybe get an estimate of the value of that pen you inherited. If there is a a pen that you want to buy, sell or trade at the meeting, you can post it so anyone interested can take a look.
The annual dues pay to rent the space, and for the food at the meeting. Please contact Todd (email at the bottom) to arrange for payment, or see him at the meeting.
New/prospective members are welcome to attend your first meeting free to decide if the club is for you.
IV. San Francisco Pen Show – tables and auction The San Francisco Pen Show will be held August 25-27 at the Hotel Pullman (formerly Sofitel) in Redwood Shores. Todd tells me that the table are sold out, but he will be working with the hotel to try to add some more. If you want a chance for a table, move fast.
There will be an auction at the show of pens that belong to the PCA. Todd will try to bring them to the PPPC meeting for viewing.
Hope to see everyone at the meeting:
