This statement comes from Summer of Sonic creator and co-organiser, Svend ‘Dreadknux’ Joscelyne.
After five amazing years of creating and organising the worldâ€™s best-loved Sonic the Hedgehog fan convention, I have decided to retire my position from The Summer of Sonic team. Effective immediately, I will have no involvement in the organisation of 2013â€™s event.
I have passed my duties and responsibilities in developing the convention to Adam Tuff (T-Bird) and Rory Joscelyne (Roareye). Having been key members of the Summer of Sonic team since its very first year, I have no doubt that they will continue to realise our vision for the show, and put on an amazing dayâ€™s worth of fun for Sonic the Hedgehog fans all over the world.
The Summer of Sonic convention is an event that will forever remain incredibly dear to me. I would like to thank everybody whoâ€™s ever been involved with the showâ€™s development – volunteers, special guests, our collaborative partner SEGA and of course the fans that have attended and helped transform it into the international success it is today.
I will be cheering the Summer of Sonic organisation team on from the sidelines as I prepare to embark on a new adventure. Thanks again everyone – it’s been a fantastic ride!
