This time I will try to bring a bunch of Atari gear.

Much more precious cargo than a guitar!

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".

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 :

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 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 🙂 So get ready for 2 great concerts on 2 different Atari platforms! 🙂

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.
