Fall Commodore Expo 2004 Announced 12

IL-CSIXTY4 writes "On September 4th, fans of the classic Commodore 64 personal computer will converge on the suburb of Lisle, Illinois for the annual Fall Commodore Expo. This event will feature demos of the latest hardware and software available to Commodore users. It will also have vendors, guest speakers, and a raffle with drawings throughout the day.

Between the cool Color 64 BBSes in Portland (Commodore-character art was the best) and Microprose games (Gunship, Pirates! and Red Storm Rising rocked my w
    • There are two main Commodore Expos during the year. One is the Fall Expo, which the SWRAP user group hosts in the Chicago area. The other is the Spring Expo held just outside Louisville every Memorial Day. This December, there's also going to be a revival of the old World of Commodore show in Toronto. Hopefully this will become an annual event as well. Links to both of these shows can be found on the SWRAP Expo home page. There are also various classic gaming/computing shows all over the country.

  • the suburb of Lisle, Illinois

    Lisle Illinois has a suburb? I'm from Illinois and I've never heard of the place, let alone its suburb. ;-)
