Comments on: SoS From The Front Entrance Just another WordPress weblog Sun, 13 Feb 2011 12:11:20 +0000 hourly 1 By: page Wed, 11 Aug 2010 12:56:11 +0000 I am a regular at MCM expo, this was my first SOS. I have to say that if sos and expo fall on the same date expo wont get a look in. SoS is simply amazing, the people are… well i cant find the words but I felt so at home. everyone was smiling, everyone approachable. There are so many thankyous i want to give out, Johhny was late on stage for buzzbombs because he was talking to my little boy (Tyler) who was on Drednknux’s team, then when his team lost, Tyler was tracked down given prizes anyway! then when he told Dreadknux that he would give them all back if he could just meet Sonic… (A serious tear welled up here) Dreadknux went out of his way to make sure Ty had his hug from the hedgehog!

All of you, no matter WHAT you did for SOS should be exploding with pride, you made a little boy (and a big one!) so so happy.

Thank you so much, as a community i wonder if we could do more to help you next time?

I’ve only been to one other show/convention and though SoS was much smaller, it was so much more enjoyable because of the effort you guys had put in and, as you so well put, the community.
Here in Canterbury, Sonic fans seem rather scarce and SoS was a great opportunity for me to meet like minded persons and chat to them. As I posted earlier, even if you guys had to charge for SoS 2011 I would be there in a heartbeat. My utmost thanks to yourself and everyone who made sacrifices, big and small, to make it possible. You are truly an example to humanity! :D

As I said to you before, I seriously appreciate the work that you do that can sometimes go unnoticed, but it’s equally as important. So thank you for doing what you do and for being an awesome person. :3

By: JayZeach Tue, 10 Aug 2010 15:38:05 +0000 “I’ve seen people sacrifice their tickets or brining their friends to help those whom they don’t even know get into Summer of Sonic purely because of how upset they were that they missed the opportunity.”

I’d like to add to this a little, though i will presume it was the same three that I said to speak to you when they arrived at the door.

While outside in the morning patroling the line (yes, that’s as close to as an official designation as it gets) making sure you were all in the one line, weren’t skipping, spilling out all over the street or standing on the public roads, I was approached by a friendly fellow i’d never spoken to before.

I shall call him Mr X, Mr. X seemed like a nice chap, he approached me in a very friendly way, I was expecting him to ask me on what time they’d be expected to get in, rather than that, i ended up more in shock from the question.

Apon approaching me, he asked me if it was possible to transfer tickets, now as far as I know, it’s not, and that he would have to speak to Urtheart on the door, however, I was curious so he explained why for me.

He explained to me that not one, not two, but THREE of the group were willing to GIVE UP their own tickets, and all the time that they had spent queueing outside, and waiting on SoS in general, to three people they had met in the queue and had never spoken to before.

Three, complete, strangers.

As Urtheart said, THIS is what makes the Sonic community, THIS shows us that we don’t ALL fall into the “generalisation” in which we are viewed.

Watching the Sonic community come together, each year enjoying themselves, interacting with people old and new, and willing to sacrifice things for others, as with the rest of the staff, has always been the highlight of my working day there, no matter what else is there, seeing Crush 40, playing Sonic 4, etc. Nothing compares, to seeing all of YOU wearing a smile on that day, and enjoying yourself.

So as Urtheart has done, I thank you all, for making the day what it is, The best Sonic Community event of the year.
