Congratulations to Brian Peterson on winning the March Giveaway!

There’s no stopping the FPGeeks Monthly Giveaways! For the month of March, thanks to La Couronne du Comte, you’ll have a chance at winning the newly released Pelikan M800 Tortoise fountain pen with your choice of nib size!
Be honest, you weren’t expecting this, were you? Do us a favor and please write your entry after you’ve stopped shaking from excitement.

You calm now? Good. Now go find something that’ll accept ink and scribble your entry on it. It can be toilet paper, Moleskine (nearly the same thing), tree bark, or good ol’ Rhodia. Just make it legible, please.

Very Important:
To be entered in the giveaway you must follow a few simple instructions:

1. Go to this page of the La Couronne du Comte website and find the special phrase.
2. Complete the special phrase by filling in the blank at the end of the sentence. (There is no correct answer. Just have fun with it!)
3. Mail us your hand written entry with the complete phrase to:

Fountain Pen Geeks
PO Box 728
Ankeny, IA 50021

All entries must be received by Sunday, March 31, 2013.
Only one entry per person, please.
The random draw to select the winner will be conducted during the first live FPtv broadcast in April.
You do not have to be watching the live broadcast in order to win.
As always, this is another FPGeeks famous Contest Without Borders and is open to anyone and everyone, world-wide.

      They wouldn’t, it’s been donated by a retailer. Who has something seriously, worryingly, but wonderfully wrong with him.

    What a wonderful and generous giveaway. I have just started collecting fountain pens. Please Please
    can I have the pen with a fine nib.

  • HanryYang

    Will the winner be able to pick from any of pelikan’s nibs or just F-B? I see that The very generous folks at La Couronne du Comte have a wide selection of nibs available on their normal M800 fountain pens. Perhaps they would be willing to swap one out…

  • Julien

    Is the special phrase only thing that I need to write?
