It’s almost time for the spring meeting from the Dutch Typewriter Collectors, March 15th. The program is known and until now eight people signed up to participate. Not many yet, hopefully more will add themselves to the list during the next two weeks. (If you want to join too, please leave a reply or send an email. You are very welcome!)

10:00 – 10:30: opening talk
10:30 – 11:30: show and tell of your favorite portable
11:30 – 12:00: typewriters on vinyl
12:00 – 12:30: a little typing competition
12:30 – 13:30: lunch break
13:30 – 13:45: who won the competition?
14:00 – 15:00: special on stenograph machines
15:00 – 15:30: exhibit of portables and stenographs machines
15:30 – end: drinks and snacks during typewriters in the 21th century

Although I am slightly nervous, I’m also excited. I attended my first collectors meeting last October and I don’t really know anyone yet. As expected I’m also the youngest one, which leads to a whole bunch of assumptions about my collection habits. I didn’t expect that the first meeting, so I am now more prepared to enter those conversations.

< edit 22:18 > Just in, five Dutch Halbergs will be presented during the meeting. How amazing!

I.T.A.M. this year seems all about how you store and show your typewriters. As told in a couple of comments my typewriters are mostly in their cases due to the many cats wandering about. Two of the machines (which don’t have cases) are stored in my cabinet.
