It has been confirmed by our Seattle venue, the Living Computers: Museum + Labs... the Pacific Commodore Expo NW is returning on June 9-10, 2018! You have a year to get ready! ;)

Back in California,

I received an interesting e-mail the other day. The writer wrote that he had heard that PaCommEx was only a "one-off event", i.e., that it would not be returning. Wrong! PaCommEx 2018 is still on track. If PaCommEx statements do not come from me here on the forum or on the PaCommEx Facebook page, then any other ramblings/rumors/suppositions from other people are false.

Like what has happened with CommVEx,

With PaCommEx 2018 getting near, I just received an inquiry about how to register an exhibit (or for that matter, how to register for a presentation). All you have to do is to tell us here on the forum, post a message on Facebook, or send a private message to us! And if you don't like doing that, just show up with your Commodore gear! :)

No formality here,

It was great to have Gordon Steemson of the Seattle Retro-Computing Society and Ryan Sherwood of the Puget Sound Commodore User Group exhibiting their computers at PaCommEx this year. It was great to have Christian Stich show off his Amiga computers. It was great to have Eric Hill talk about the Amiga and Don Elman talk about Commander magazine. It was great to have the many, many attendees come and try out our computers and discover things they did not know about Commodore and Amiga (When were these Commodore VR glasses developed? 2017?! When did these commercial disks go on sale? 2015-2016?! What is this Amiga OS 4.1? Still current?!). :) It was great to have the cooperation and help of the Living Computers: Museum + Labs in providing sound, projection, lighting, announcements to the crowd, little hardware bits we forgot to bring, and even in the raffle of the free computers. Wow!

PaCommEx not just touched Commodore and Amiga enthusiasts, but the general public as well. And that is a good thing! A most heartfelt thank you to everyone involved.

A big, big success,

I must not forget a thank you to Ray Carlsen for testing out the C64 and the C128 that were given away!

Now in Creswell, Oregon and heading back to California,
