Unofficial London 2012 Pin Collectors Meets
Since December 2010, more and more London 2012 pin collectors have been meeting up to chat, catch up on news and trade pins. Whilst the focus is primarily on London 2012 pins, there are normally a few collectors with pins from previous Olympic Games or National Olympic Committees looking to trade too.
It doesn't matter if your new to the whole pin collecting phenomenon with very little to trade or have bags and bags of pins to swap. Either way you would be most welcome to join us at one of our future meets.
Take a look at the dates and times of our next meetings and if you would like to come along, then drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll add you to the list. There's no obligation to register for a particular meet, but if a sponsor offers us some pins to hand out at the meet, then they will be distributed in a 'first-registered, first-served' manner. Even if you register, there's no obligation if you can't make it.
The events are entirely free and if nothing else, you'll get to meet some like minded collectors and see some fantastic pin collections.
Sunday 8th June - Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park - During the Festival of Sport to commemorate the Commonwealth Games Queen's Baton relay coming to London, there will be a small pin trading area from 9:30am until early afternoon. More details on the news blog.
If you're still unsure, take a look at these reports of previous meetings or drop me an email at email@example.com with any questions.
