---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Accomodation at SV2k17 - a sleeping room will be available, but I encourage you to try Zatoka hotel, located very close to the party-place:

Hotel Zatoka
ul. Trakt Św. Wojciecha 149
80–017 Gdańsk
POLAND


(recepcja.hotel@zatoka.pl, phone: +48 58 728 44 10)

Today I was able to get a discount for the password "ATARI". When making a reservation by e-mail, enter it in the body of the message, via phone just tell them that it's about "ATARI Event".

Here is a special offer for Silly Venture participants from 7th to 10th December (Thursday-Sunday):

Standard double room for one person: 145 PLN/day - with breakfast (~34EUR/day)
Standard double room: 175 PLN/day - with breakfast (~41EUR/day)
Standard triple room: 260 PLN/day - with breakfast (~61EUR/day)
Standard quadruple Room: 340 PLN/day - with breakfast (~80EUR/day)

The above prices include breakfast - if you book through Booking.com the cost of breakfast is 32PLN/person (~7.50EUR/person) - so you will save an extra 32PLN just on breakfast.

We got discount both for bed and breakfast, in case of booking without breakfast prices will be:

Standard double room for one person: 125 PLN/day - without breakfastt (~30EUR/day)
Standard double room: 135 PLN/day - without breakfast (~31.50EUR/day)
Standard triple room: 200 PLN/day - without breakfast (~47EUR/day)
Standard Quadruple Room: 260 PLN/day - without breakfast (~61EUR/day)

Room types:

Standard - without air conditioning
Deluxe - with air conditioning (extra charge + 10PLN/gross/day) (~2.50EUR/day)

The prices shown are gross prices.

The price includes breakfast and parking.

Currently, a rooms availability for above dates is as follows:

Double room - 64
Triple room - 7
Quadruple Room - 1

WARNING !!! I know that some "partisans" have made a "booking" just after announcing a party-place on Friday. Those who did it **WITHOUT** booking.com brokers can cancel their reservation and make it "again" with negotiated discounts.

I just happen to have (not confirmed though) my winter vacation on that week. Also, there are direct flights to Gdansk from where I am. Wife was keen as well. We'd just visit during the day if we were to come, what fees would we be looking at?

I am very pleased to announce that there's another concert planned to be held on the forthcoming SV2k17 edition! After gwEm's concert we will also welcome on the stage KK/Altair, who will be celebrating 40 years of the Atari 2600 with his 2 Atari VCS consoles connected to the mixer! You won't believe how the TIA can sound 8O So get ready for 2 great concerts on 2 different Atari platforms! :twisted:

@Rustynutt: awesome! :) There is a regular direct bus (line 210) from the airport stopping very close to the party-place :) Coming to Silly Venture never wasn't easier than that! :) Please register here: http://www.sillyventure.eu/en/visitors

There is a lot of cool prizes for all people taking a part in competitions at SV2k17 and new ones arrive every week! Just like a brand new "SNES Classic Mini" console sponsored by Eagle, CT60e for Falcon sponsored by Willy or new XL/XE/ST/Falcon anti-dust covers and new edition of Atari XL/XE games on tapes sponsored by Retronics.
