From Sonic Retro's front page:

QUOTE
After years of wanting a Sonic community event here in the United States, we're finally getting one with “Sonic Boom,” special treat for those in town during the E3 Expo in Los Angeles on the night of Wednesday, June 8th. We will be hanging out, playing some Sonic Generations and celebrating Sonic's 20th anniversary. Best of all: this event is absolutely free.

Sonic Retro, in cooperation with Sonic Stadium and SEGA of America, have 2,000 seats to fill and we need our dedicated forum members to pack the house! This event will be big, so you're going to need to reserve a spot. SEGA is currently letting 500 people RSVP to the event, but both Retro and Stadium have a specific allotment of passes, too, ensuring that everybody has a chance to go.

How can you go as a member of Sonic Retro? Just e-mail me at slingerland AT sonicretro DOT org and you will get a link to sign up through us. It's that simple!

This event will be very exciting. Not only will you be able to play Sonic Generations without having to go to E3, but many recognizable community members will be in attendance! At this time, Chimpo, Gene and myself will be there, along with Jason and Nuckles87 from Sonic Stadium, but we will have some international flair with Dreadknux, T-Bird and The Taxman in the building!

So, come on, America! We've got community members from all over the world coming to this party. You don't want to miss out! Tickets have only been available for a few minutes and they are going fast.

If I had a ride to LA, I would totally do this.

Maybe next year, if this becomes an annual thing.

I will be bringing my talents from South Beach to Los Angeles for this event. Every event needs a little 305 flavor.

That's really cool, MathUser, but I said, "Community Event" and not "Sonic Convention." This is not a convention.

And that sorts out this page that I did earlier.

Dammit, I need to get a job so I stop missing out on stuff like this.

EDIT: By which I mean to afford a PLANE ticket to fly to LA.

I might be able to attend this, just have to see if I can squeeze in a quick trip to LA (got the finances for the most part). No guarantees yet though.

Any Seattlites driving down? I'd certainly like to show if I can find a way to get there.

Where are you all booking to stay? Trying to get a rough estimate and distance from LAX.

Also good for coordinating the Unofficial Summer of Sonic Does America Retro After Party Boxsocial for Classy Peoples.

No, but I'm originally from the Seattle area. I lived in Burien, Seatac, Renton, Kent and Federal Way for most of my life. It's nice to know someone is from there. smile.png
I miss Seattle....

Damnit! Why didn't I see this earlier? Hopefully Retro still has passes. I'm totally up for this!
