Off-Line Meeting (June 27, 2003)

[Return] [ Index, SR-Annex ]

Kim happened to be in Tokyo area on business trip. He wanted to see some of the slide rule collectors in town. So we set up an off-line meeting. Five slide rule collectors got together on June 27, 2003. We had dinner and lots of drink and had a great time showing off each one's prize collections. We speculated that this might be the largest gathering, ever of slide rule collectors in Japan. (All names are screen names.)
