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 determined by the total score each pen accumulates from each participant’s bracket. For example, if you pick the Parker 51 to win the first round, it will gain two points to its running total. If you pick the Parker 51 to win it all, it will gain 64 points to its running total. After all brackets have been submitted and the deadline passes, we will add up the total scores of each pen by accumulating the points based on where each participant placed said pen in their bracket. If the Parker 51 has more total points after finalizing the point accumulation than the Sheaffer Legacy, it will be the winner of that “game” and advance to the next round. We will keep this method until we are crowned a champion. Essentially, whichever pen has the most total points based on placement from every participant’s bracket, will win the tournament.

 

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

 

Round of 64: 2 Points
