INAUGURAL FOUNTAIN PEN

TOURNAMENT CHALLENGE

(2021)

Hosted by:  ATLAS STATIONERS

 

Overview:  Atlas Stationers is excited to present the Inaugural Fountain Pen Tournament Challenge.  Fill out the tournament bracket, submit it, and win big prizes.

 

How to Play: Download or print the Tournament Bracket.  Each round will consist of “games” between two of the community’s favorite fountain pens.  Choose the winner for each game and move that pen on to the next round by indicating the pen’s name in the space provided for the next round.  Continue on until your champion pen is in the “Champion!” spot. 

 

Submit completed bracket with your name to specials@atlasstationers.com or by dropping it off at Atlas by 4:00 p.m. CDT on Thursday, March 18, 2021 to be eligible to win.  At the sole discretion of Atlas Stationers, illegible or incorrectly filled out brackets will be voided.  Limit of one bracket submission per person.

 

How the Winner of Each Game Will be Chosen:  Each bracket submitted by the deadline will be entered into the pool.  The winner of each game will be based on the majority vote from the community.  So, for example, the first game in the “Great Chicago Fire” region is Parker 51 versus Sheaffer Legacy.  If more people choose Parker 51 over Sheaffer Legacy, Parker 51 wins and will advance to the next round.  For each correct “game” winner picked, points will be awarded.

 

Scoring:  Each round awards points for the winner of each game.
