Our next NJ Pen Club Meeting will be hosted at the Manalapan Library on Thursday, July 30th at 6pm. We changed the venue to accommodate more of our members to reach the meet point more easily.
Proposed Agenda :
- Meet & Greet - Any new members can come clean about their love for pens. We expect a number of returning members from our first meet, so we'll be chatting until about 6:15p to wait for stragglers to arrive.
- Nib Adjusting and Smoothing - Seems like the topic that most of us are interested in discussing has to do with working our nibs to create a more pleasurable writing experience. Bring some 10,000 grit micro mesh, mylar paper, lighted loupes, brass sheets and paper towels. This may get inky!
- Sample J. Herbin's Emerald of Chivor - We'll be bringing a couple pens to sample the highly anticipated J. Herbin Emerald of Chivor ink. We also have a tiny bottle of the ink that we will raffle away to a lucky attendee.
Suggested Viewing : Nib Tweaks for Geeks
If you haven't already received our e-mail and would like to join in on the fun, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP so we know to expect you.
In accordance to the policies of the Monmouth County Library System, we are restricted from transacting business at the meeting. However, it will be permissible for us (Goldspot) to provide you with our business cards and access to our website with an exclusive, members-only discount to purchase any of the pens and inks that you may be looking for at the meeting. We believe that this restriction will add to a more welcoming experience that isn't sales-driven.
General membership to the club is totally free.
