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

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.

Hi Grey, great event and video report, well done on organising it! How many people attended in the end? It's been about 15 years since I met with someone who was interested in Atari!!
