Pelikan Hub In/a Montreal - Need Some Help/besoin De Aide!


JLS1

Recommended Posts

Hi fellow pen friends/Salut des mes amis stylo!

 

I signed up for the Pelikan Hub in Montreal and recently got an email from Pelikan saying:

"We have noticed that the number of participants at the Hub City you have registered for is not high enough to form a Hub at the moment." ( :( )

 

Since I've had a lot of fun at previous Pelikan hubs (plus, I think that it's high time Montreal had a regular meeting of "Les Amis du Stylo"), I thought I would let my fellow Montrealaise know that:

- we have until July 31 to register to try and have a local Pelikan hub (you can register at www.pelikan.com/hubs)

- even if we don't have a formal Pelikan hub, we could still set up an informal meeting to show off our pens and try different inks & papers.

 

If you have any questions or need help, feel free to PM me.

 

Thanks for your attention and hope you have a great summer!

 

Regards,

Justin

(AKA JLS1 on various FP boards)

 

 

PS: Mods, if this is in the wrong place or against the FPN rules, please feel free to move and/or remove this post. Thanks!

This is in the right place Justin.

 

 

I did my best (registering to Montreal)... although I won't be able to attend. Hoping you are just a few numbers away to meet the criteria.

 

 

Vive Montreal!!! :lol: :lol:

Maybe we should all just plan on going to Montreal?

 

Could one register for Montreal and, ahem, not actually go?

 

Best,

The whole point of registering, is to have a proper Hub/meet with decent attendance.

 

I only registered in case he was short a couple of guys to create a Hub. I wouldn't recommend for everyone to register to Montreal if they are not planning on going.

Is July 11, and I have not received any email from Pelikan about not having a hub in Montreal. Just a guess, but it looks like Montreal will have a Hub this year. ;)

Thanks Cyber6 and AD64 - I appreciate the help! :notworthy1:

 

The main idea behind this post was to float the idea of a Montreal hub more publicly, as well as see if we can get some Montreal pen addicts...err...aficionados together.

Even if it doesn't happen with an organized event (i.e., Pelikan Hub), it would be great to organize an informal pen posse like in Ottawa & Toronto.

I am so sorry... it doesn't look like the Montreal Hub made it.

 

 

What I found strange is that 4 people is enough to have a hub in Czech Republic... but not in Montreal? :(

Maybe the ratio of population to registrants was part of the decision-making.

Yes, it's officially confirmed that Montreal will not be a Pelikan hub this year. :(

Thanks to everyone that signed up and tried to make this happen.

 

If you're in/around Montreal and are interested in attending a Pelikan Hub (it's fun!), please do register for the one in Sherbrooke - I'm sure you will have a great time!

Don't give up just yet - everyone that signed up for London UK received an email saying not enough participants for a London hub this year. A couple of us emailed Pelikan, and they responsed saying that there had been a technical glitch, so we do have our hub in London. It can't hurt to ask them.

Just curious, where are you seeing the numbers per city/hub?

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..
    • A Smug Dill
      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
