Summer of Sonic 2016 "Mr Yuji Naka is alright!"

Recommended Posts

It'd be nifty if the Sega Central team came over for the event to make an episode there. I'm just hoping anyone who worked on the games are coming again, I'd love to get something like my Sonic 1 or Generations sleeve signed!

Actually, what'd be really cool is if they do something again for the Anniversary game like they did for Generations where they got the SOS and Boom events to chant a birthday message.

I know of both Holiday Inn Express and Travelodge being around the corner from the ILEC centre. Both are roughly five minutes away from the place.

I'll be at Holiday Inn with my friend.

 

EDIT: To add on to what I previously said, I also know of both Premier Inn and Hotel Xenia. Both are roughly fifteen minutes walk away.

I am putting together a small hotel guide.

If you have already booked a place or if you've booked a place you've stayed at before, please share it so I can include it.

I've just booked up with EasyHotel (it's EasyJet, but on the ground, you see) at their Earl's Court site in London.

http://www.easyhotel.com/

Their current cheapest option is a 'small room - no window'. That's going for £98 for a stay from Friday 5th August to the 7th. There's a double bed so you'll be able to sleep two per room even though you really are running on the most minimal amount of space you can get. Things like the TV remote and wifi are charged as optional extras if they're going to be something you want.

If you want to get an idea of the room. Here's a video of the Earl's Court site itself:

The hotel is a short walk to and from Earl's Court station and from there it's about a three minute journey along the District line right to West Brompton Station and from there it's literally a couple of minutes walk in a straight line to the ILEC Centre.

EDIT: Just looking there, I'm told the two stations are actually only about half a mile apart so if you want to save some extra pennies (to spend at SOS nudge, nudge, wink, wink) then you'll be able to comfortably walk it.

I'm staying at the Garden View hotel ( 29-31 Nevern Square, London, England, SW5 9PE, United Kingdom, ‏‎0203 027 1433) which is a 10 minute walk from the venue. The reason I went for it? I got a Quadruple room (couldn't get a triple, other guys I'm with wouldn't share a bed :-p) for £275, which when I divided it by 3 we all paid about £92 each for the two nights. It's also close to a Tesco's so there's Breakfast.

I booked at the Ibis Earls Court which is attached to the venue itself.

It'll be great to see them once again! Hopefully this'll be the year that I finally get something signed by Jun... maybe. :P

Hey guys, we have a new stretch goal! 

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tbird/the-summer-of-sonic-uk-fan-convention-one-more-run/posts/1550895

If we get over £25,000 we get a certain singer to return! Also, in half an hour a new tier will appear. You can bag a rare 25th anniversary coin out of it! Hop to it guys!

I was sat next to someone who snagged a Super VIP. 

They were logged in and waiting, they got one within about 10 seconds of the kickstarter updating and they were the third to get one.

Not sure on the exact times, but I clicked refresh a few seconds later and my clock had ticked over to the next min, and they were all gone.

So we can say they went somewhere in around 60 seconds.
