The Commodore Vegas Expo has continued for 12 years with the support of the Fresno Commodore User Group, the Clark County Commodore Computer Club (of Las Vegas), the Southern California Commodore & Amiga Network, and the Portland Commodore User Group. Without the involvement of these clubs, CommVEx would have not gone on to being what it is today -- a successful, yearly Commodore/Amiga event.
Last year I was contacted by Stephen Jones of the Living Computer Museum in Seattle, Washington. He wanted to know if I could do a similar event in Seattle. I replied but heard nothing back. A few weeks ago I visited the Living Computer Museum and talked to Matisse Fletcher, events coordinator for the museum. I talked to her about a two-day, Seattle Commodore/Amiga event in the vein of a CommVEx. She was very open to the idea but wanted more details. I sent her a follow-up e-mail when I returned to California and received her reply shortly thereafter. She has agreed to such an event and has locked in a date for it -- June 10-11, 2017.
The event will be called the Pacific Commodore Expo NW or PaCommEx for short. It will be like CommVEx, except we cannot have buying/selling/raffling due to the non-profit status of the museum. The museum will charge its own admittance fee, which will be a few dollars per person. We can set-up on Friday, but on the days of the show, we are limited to the hours the museum is open. PaCommEx will
be supported by the Fresno Commodore User Group, the Portland Commodore User Group, the Puget Sound Commodore User Group (of Tacoma), and the Commodore 64 Enthusiasts of Greater Victoria.
