    Default 2021 DC Show Info

    Taken from the email I received today from Barbara Johnson (Co-Coordinator of the DC Pen Show)
    She also informed me of the passing of Bob Johnson (Brother) over weekend
    (Bob founded the Show nearly 30 years ago- the 2021 Show will be the 30th Annual Show)

    "Dear Pen Community,

    We were disappointed with the necessity of canceling the 2020 SUPERSHOW due to the pandemic. BUT in anticipation of the world wide health crisis being under control in 2021, we have scheduled the 30th anniversary of the SUPERSHOW for August 5 - 8, 2021, at the same location, the Fairview Park Marriott in Falls Church, Virginia. We will hold a special celebration to honor Bob at that time.

    We will shortly be updating the DC Fountain Pen SUPERSHOW website and encourage you to register as soon as possible to reserve your table for the 2021 SUPERSHOW. We look forward to seeing you at the SUPERSHOW.

    Please discontinue using Bob's Pencentral website and email, cell phone number, and South Carolina address.

    Current contact information for the SUPERSHOW:
    Address: PO Box 5021, Falls Church, VA 22044
    Phone #: 703-214-8148

    Thank you for all of your past support of Bob and the SUPERSHOW,

    Barbara Johnson, Bob's sister
    Jeff Hancock. Bob's nephew"

    Very sad. I received the same email from Barbara, Bob's sister. She helped Bob with the show for quite a few years. Bob ran the world's largest pen show for nearly 30 years. He will be missed.
