Just around the corner... the Aug. 10-11 CommVEx

Post by rbernardo » Tue Jul 30, 2019 10:20 pm

The Commodore Vegas Expo v15 is getting near! August 9 is our set-up day, and August 10-11 we have the show from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. $25 whether you stay one day or both days. It's in the Desert Wind Salon (next to the Bingo room!), third floor, of the Plaza Hotel, 1 Main Street, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Have an early look at the room --

After 15 years of shows, this year's CommVEx takes an retrospective look with never-before-seen videos of engineer Jeri Ellsworth, scener Peter Hanson, vendor Jim Scabery, and CBM engineer Dave Haynie. But we also have live presentations and exhibits from Matt Brewster, Mario Luppi, and more!

We have a PET 2001-8, Commodore 128, SX-64, and VIC-20 system in the raffle, and we have items such as Strikelink wi-fi modems for sale. Naturally, each CommVEx attendee will get freebies at the door and have a chance to win door prizes!

I'm now on the road to Vegas. The Crown Vic is packed! Not only are there Commodores and Amigas but I've packed in 7 monitors, 2 of which are CRT's.

Truly,

Photocopies cost so much from FedEx! Well, I will make some more tomorrow.

Still in Las Vegas,

Ack! I was so preoccupied today that I didn't make it to FedEx. I will try again tomorrow. Gotta finish the photocopies before CommVEx!

Still in Las Vegas,

Photocopies done! Weather forecast for the CommVEx weekend -- 104 degrees F., down from the 110 that we have today.

Much cooler in the CommVEx room,

For the CommVEx competition gaming where you can win a cash prize, we will have Street Fighter II Turbo running off the Amiga CD32. Get ready for the slugfest! :)

Moving to the Tahiti Village in south Las Vegas,

Just finished sending off an e-mail to Sales/Catering at the Plaza Hotel. The manager sent a diagram of how he thought the chairs and tables were to be arranged in the Desert Wind Salon. I responded that we need a theatre-type arrangement of seats for the audience in front of the projection wall and that we need tables and chairs around the periphery of the room.

Details, details,
