11/4: Pin Meet Report

We held the "2nd Unofficial London 2012 Pin Collectors 'Pin Meet'" on Saturday. Turnout was 50% up on the first meeting just before Christmas. Ok, that means 6 people instead of 4, but those that attended had a worthwhile time.
  • Honav kindly turned up for the start of the meeting to canvass feedback and listen to our thoughts on the pin programme.
  • Lloyds very kindly offered each attendee a Lloyds 500 day to go pin
  • A member of Olympin told us about the club and it's benefits and offered a discounted 2 year membership to the attendees which includes an official Olympin club pin featuring the London 2012 logo for 2011 and 2012.
  • Apart form all that, some very good trades were made and we each made valuable additions to our collections.
The venue was the Railway Tavern pub in Stratford, and what an excellent venue it was. Spacious with plenty of space to trade and the owners were into their pins. All of us agreed it's a perfect venue for our next meet.

Speaking of which, I'd like to suggest that the 3rd Unofficial pin meet takes place on Saturday 23rd July 2011. This is over the weekend of the 2011 BP Open weekend. If there's enough support for having this pin meet then I may see if we can register it with the Open Weekend programme to get some promotion.

So, over to you - who's ready to attend the next pin meet? You can contact me using the email link in the right hand menu.
