Informal Pen Breakfast - This Saturday!

Sorry for the last-minute notice, but it's time again for a pen breakfast!

We're meeting a week early due to the Chicago Pen Show falling on the first weekend in May.

Come for breakfast and show off your recent pen acquisitions!

This is not a regular meeting, but an informal get-together of club members for breakfast, coffee, and camaraderie.

People start arriving just before 9AM and we wrap up by about 10:30AM.

We're usually sitting toward the back of the hotel's restaurant, near the buffet area.

The hotel has a reasonably-priced breakfast buffet or you can order off the menu.

Bring any pens or related items you'd like to share or show off.

See you on Saturday!

    Saturday was great, talking about pen history, learning about why pen features are the way they are, and getting to meet some fantastic people. Loved it!

    A discussion of pencil leads, that contain graphite not lead, was interesting for the round, square, and rectangular shapes of leads in different sizes. Rectangular pencil lead works well to mark answers on computer readable test answer sheets. About 14 people attended this breakfast where a variety of fountain pens were shown. I enjoyed seeing a combined business card holder and pen holder made by a Harry Gaertner.

    Have another commitment, but there will be plenty of other folks coming.

    These breakfasts are an excellent opportunity to become better acquainted and see some interesting writing instruments.
