Well hello guys! It may well be the ending of August, and for most of us, the Summer is slowly drawing to a close, but in our hearts, the fire of Summer of Sonic is still burning!
Allow me to introduce myself. I'm Syaming-Li
and I started this group so that people on deviantART remain in the loop about Summer of Sonic and any announcements. The idea came to fruition over the course of the last couple of years, as I personally wrote journals aiding Summer of Sonic goers in their travels to the event, organised meets based on those ideas and both so far have proved to have been successful. This year, I chose to cross-post these journals on The Sonic Stadium Forums. I will be doing so again this year, but this time I plan to do so from a much more professional capacity. With permission from the awesome Kevin “ArchangelUK” Eva, and Svend "Dreadknux" Joscelyne, I decided a group would be much better for the purpose!
This will not be JUST a blogging account either! Of course we need to make it interactive! As a result Members will be able to post all of their Summer of Sonic goodies and post them here to showcase! Whether you're an artist, a cosplayer, or just want to show off your photography, you will be able to do so here, too! In addition, in a slightly more minor capacity, I will be posting news in conjunction with HelenBaby
in regards to Sonic London meets happening in the capital. So if you can make it down, you'll know when to!
Things are still in their early-stages. Should this provide enough interest, I will turn it into a Super Group and spruce it up a little, so at present I am not looking for admins for the duration, but I may look for admins and contributors should things get a little busier, so please bear with me during this time. Thank you for reading!About Summer Of Sonic
Summer of Sonic is an international Sonic the Hedgehog (as if you couldn't guess!) convention that takes place in London, England. The venues are different each year, and the first Summer of Sonic started in 2008 in the Dragon Hall, Covent Garden. The precedence was set early with Richard Jaques, TJ Davis and Bentley Jones (Lee Brotherton) performing for us. More recently, the 2010 event (and biggest one to date) saw in over 700 Sonic fans from all over the globe, the ability to play Sonic the Hedgehog 4 and Sonic Colours, and of course Crush 40's rockin' performance, which was a great experience for them as well as it was for the fans! Next year, it's no-holds-barred, as it'll be Sonic's 20th Anniversary! As a result, Summer of Sonic 2011 (or Summer of Sonic 4!) will take place on Saturday, 25th June, 2011

I know a lot of us are adults, so it will be pretty tricky at times, but the trick is having a demographic of all ages reading this without feeling offended, so do your best!
