Every year, the Pelikan pen company holds a world-wide event called Pelikan Hubs – it’s a collection of meetups in cities around the world where fountain pen fans (and, obviously, Pelikan fans) gather and enjoy their shared enthusiasm for a great writing experience.

If past GNYPIG meetups are any indication, our members arrive with plenty of Pelikan pens to pass around and enjoy! And according to the Hubs web site, the event’s mission is: “For the fun of it, and because there’s nothing better than a hobby shared” … That’s a sentiment we agree on!

This year, Rochester, NY has been selected to host a Pelikan Hub! GNYPIG’s September meetup will be combined with the Pelikan Hubs event – Stay tuned here and watch out for GNYPIG emails for more information…

  1. Done! Would love to get on the map (literally and figuratively). Just a note for anyone who may get confused by the website, you have to enter your name & email first, then click [next], and then select the radio button for suggesting a new location. I pasted in Rochester / Upstate NY — that’s it. We only need 5 to be considered…

    1. We did it! Rochester, NY has been approved as a Pelikan Hub, and can now be selected as a city when registering for Hub events. Pelikan still needs to select actual hub cities in July, so if you want GNYPIG’s fall meetup to be a Pelikan Hub event, it’s still important to register. (Dru, thanks for being one of the 8 who have registered so far!)

      1. Hello Dave,
