    Default Upcoming Sonic Fan Events

    If you live in the UK area (which you most likely do ) and have ever wanted to meet fellow Sonic fans in places besides (or have been unable to attend) Summer of Sonic, well, I have fantastic news for you! The large Sonic fanbase within the United Kingdom has created a solution!

    ==Sonic London==

    You probably know of Sonic London by now, but if you don't, here's a brief recap: Sonic London has existed for approximately three years, founded by HelenBaby and a close team of co-organisers. The events average about twenty people per meet, generally (as the name implies) meeting in the London area; the events have become so regular and professional that companies such as Nintendo, Capcom and Sumo Digital have recognized them and given them free goodies to hand out.

    Their upcoming meetup is on Saturday, November 30th, from 1:30 to 4:30 PM at the Iron Duke, Victoria in London. Theyíll be upstairs, as the staff have allowed them to reserve the whole upper floor for their event. Activities will include gaming, drawing, drinking (duh ) and of course, being able to chat about oneís favorite hedgehogs and such.

    Feel free to RSVP via Facebook!

    ==Weston Super Sonic==

    Now, for those in the Western England or Wales area, donít lose hope yet; thereís one in your area too even!



    There will be a six hour fan event held in Weston Super Mare this January, complete with gaming competitions, costume workshops (for next year's SoS) and an art corner. Best of all, admission is free! It will be on January 11th, 2014 from 10:30 AM to 4:30 AM at the Vintage Church on Hughenden Rd in Weston Super Mare. This is the inaugural event for this group, so please feel free to stop by if youíre in the area; the more fans who attend the more likely this will be a recurring event!

    Feel free to RSVP via Facebook!

    (( For those NOT in the UK area, donít lose hope; thereís a large collection of US-based (and one Australian) Sonic meetup groups as well, and you can view the full list here. The group it's in was also formed for the purpose of helping others set up meets and groups in their area. ))

    Weston Super Sonic has recently unveiled a new set of medals that will be awarded to winners of its various competitions. Pretty swanky, huh?

    Needless to say, I need to get something similar going over here for Sonic Revolution...

    I've no idea! The organiser simply said she had them made... that being said I'm sure lots of folks would want to get their hands on them.

    ...the Revolution team in particular. Would be awesome!

    Details about the upcoming SonicLondon meet :



    This one's been titled the Sonic London Winter Party. It will be held on the 30th November between 13:30 - 17:00 at Meltdown London, an eSports (aka gaming) bar in North London (UK). The owners have kindly agreed to let us use their Xbox 360, so expect some Sonic Transformed/Sega Superstars Tennis action!

    There will be an Art Corner, kindly hosted by Andrew Hamblin, with pens and paper for guests to use. An art contest will take place based around the new game Sonic Lost World.

    There will also be a Handheld Corner, with an emphasis on the 3DS Sonic Lost World multiplayer. Don't worry if you don't own a copy of the game, because myself and SonicYoda will both be hosting VS matches via 3DS Download Play. The meet will also be a great place to trade cards with fellow Sonic Lost World players if you -do- own the game, as well as missions.
    Other multiplayer games will also be played, such as Mario Kart 7, Sonic Transformed etc.

    *BUMPS*

    Looks like Nintendo will be helping us out once again, with copies of Sonic Lost World (format to be confirmed) and eShop vouchers to be won! You need to be there on the day to be in with a chance, so make sure you go ahead and RSVP!

    Some more news for folks: as Sonic Revolution passes 700 Likes on FB and 400 people in its FB group, Sonic SoCal has planned its next meetup. The meetup will be held at the Gamestop Expo in September 2014. So, besides meeting up with Sonic fans, that's a fairly large convention with thousands of people coming together to play upcoming video games. It's definitely something to consider a trip to California over, being a cheap alternative to PAX or E3 for one's gaming needs; you can also get photos with mascots such as Sonic, Luigi, Sly Cooper, and Ratchet.



    For those in and around St. Louis, Sonic St. Louis is considering meetup times and dates – if you’re in proximity to St. Louis, don’t be afraid to stop over by their page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Soni...1476633679970/

    Sonic Utah will be holding a meetup in Provo, Utah on January 8th at 7 PM! Feel free to stop by! https://www.facebook.com/events/1447088002179792/

    For Florida Sonic fans, more good news – there’s a meetup planned by Sonic Florida for those who plan on attending UltraCon on February 22nd. If you’re close to Florida, don’t hesitate to stop by the group and give your two cents! https://www.facebook.com/events/1435009350063363/

    HelenBaby remains diligent as ever! Sonic London will be having meetup #13, once more at the Meltdown Bar in London, on February 23rd. https://www.facebook.com/events/571207212959354/ Activities will include gaming on Xbox and 3DS, as well as an art corner. If you missed the Winter Party, don't fret, there's always this one!

    Yes, as Tanner kindly pointed out, the 13th SonicLondon meet has been announced!



    Date : 23/2/14
    Time 1:30 - late (although if you're planning on coming later do be sure to either communicate with the gang via Facebook, or with one of your friends who you know are attending, as there are no guarantees with regards what time folks will leave. We should be around til early evening atleast, however!)
    Venue : Meltdown London, 342 Caledonian Road, London N1 1BB
    Age range : 18+

    Activities

    There will be contests going on throughout the day. These will include :

    ~ Sonic Lost World 3DS Tourney : You will need a copy of the game to partcipate in this (hence why this meet is being advertised as Sonic Lost World Hard Mode. But don't fret if you don't have a copy, because you can still take part in other contests!)
    ~ Sonic & Sega AllStars Racing (Xbox 360) : The details of this will be decided by our Xbox 360 guy (aka Tareq/Cyburn). They will be confirmed on the day.
    ~ Art Contest : Draw a picture inline with the Art Contest's theme (to be decided and confirmed on the day by our Art Corner maestro Andrew Hamblin). All entries must be created by event attendees on the day itself

    Drinking

    SonicLondon kindly asks all attendees to purchase a drink or two throughout the course of the day at the very least. This is because the reason we are allowed to use the awesome Meltdown premises is in exchange for business. If you don't drink alcohol we urge you to buy a soft drink atleast, or a pint for your buddy.

    Meltdown are, however, cool with people bringing in food from outside! So do feel free to bring a packed lunch! A pizza run is also something which may well happen around dinner time... (if you'd like to take part please do ensure you have some cash on you).

    As Central London pubs go Meltdown is pretty cheap! You can get a pint for as little as £3.50, and, for those that can afford it, they have a scrumptious range of gaming-themed cocktails! So yea, bottoms up <3

    Meet

    SonicLondon is a wonderful oppurtunity to meet and make new friends with other Sonic fans in the Uk. Many friendships have been forged at SonicLondon (staffie Torch even met his wonderful girlfriend Val at one of our meets). Please don't be put off by the fact this is our 13th meet, yes we have history, but we have new attendees coming all the time. Coming and staying. We're probably one of the least cliquey meetup groups you'll find. So come on down!
