PLEASE, RSVP via Comments, and let us know where you’re coming from, what typewriter(s) you are bringing and if any of them are for the swap. Me for example: Michael McGettigan–Philadelphia. Olivetti Lettera 32, Olympia SF to swap.

Thanks and hope to see lots of machines, and the people who love them on the 21st.

Philly Type-IN, Chapter Two

Philly Type-IN, Chapter Two--wherein we type up a nice Olivetti Valentine's Day note!

OK, some updates. One, if you think you are going to win the Typing Competition Speed Challenge, you better keep practicing–word has it that  Matt “Manyfingers” Cidoni will be coming to this second Type-IN. Matt dusted everyone at the last Type-IN with his brilliant command of the keyboard. So be on your game or get left behind.

Two–What is a Typewriter Roll Call? Hint: you need a little paper and a lot of typewriters to accomplish one. And we aim to do a proper TRC at this next Philly Type-IN. If you can RSVP with the make(s) and model(s) of the typewriters you are bringing, that will help us a bit as we work over our detailed seating chart! RSVP to phillytyper@gmail.com.  More than that we can not say.

Finally, we’d really like to see a bit more swappiness on the 5th–Sooo… if you see a nice typer at a thrift store, or you’re looking to thin your herd, or get some new machines — do bring some extra typers to trade.

sincerely,

— mcget/the Type-IN.
