Philadelphia Type-IN is tomorrow! RAIN OR SHINE–we’ve got it covered…

Please join us in the historic Manayunk section of Philadelphia on Saturday, May 16th, for the Type-IN.

We will be at Pretzel Park, Silverwood & Cotton Streets (just minutes from the Manayunk station of SEPTA regional rail). Starts noon, Typing Speed Contest at 1:30 (must sign up by 1 p.m.).

NOTE: If rain is more than 50% in forecast, we will set up in LUCKY’S LAST CHANCE, 4421 Main St., in their palatial second floor lounge. But current weather report shows a long clear stretch from before noon to late afternoon.

Leaving some words behind…

Little things to keep our minds off of the big things... pushing forward with each letter stamped into being....like oars, the typebars beat against the paper, then fall back, each movement seemingly too small to matter. But somehow, a few thoughts fill the page, and we've moved a bit closer towards the next day.
