The Fresno Commodore User Group and the Clark County Commodore Computer Club (of Las Vegas) present the sixth annual Commodore Vegas Expo (CommVEx) on July 24-25 at the Plaza Hotel, 1 Main Street, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

CommVEx is the fun and fabulous Commodore/Amiga computer event on the West Coast of the US. Last year our guest speaker was Dave Haynie, Commodore and Amiga engineer, and we teleconferenced with engineers Chuck Peddle, Bil Herd, and Jeri Ellsworth. This year, come and celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Amiga with R.J. Mical and Dale Luck, both Amiga software engineers, who will be honoring CommVEx with their presence.


There will be plenty of presentations for attendees to observe, exhibits for attendees to see, and computer stations for the attendees to use. Some of the presentations are on the IDE64 v4.1, the uIEC, the Mssiah, ham radio on the VIC-20, and more. For the full list of guests and presentations, go to

Some of the exhibits are the AmigaOne G4, the SAM Flex 440, the Educator 64, and more. For the full list of exhibits, go to

Enjoy gaming and programming on the computer stations around the room - a C64 set-up, a C128 set-up, a Plus4 set-up, a VIC-20 set-up, an Amiga 500 set-up, and more.

Participate in the annual CommVEx raffle! This year the list of prizes include an Amiga 1200HD, a Commodore SX-64, a 1581 drive, a Super 1750 Clone ram expander, and a uIEC card drive. For more information on the raffle, go to

Just for coming through the door, you are entered into the drawing for door prizes. And each attendee will receive CommVEx freebies!

CommVEx is in the third floor Jockey Room 1 of the hotel and officially runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. However, unofficially we start setting up on July 23, late Friday afternoon, and after the official times on Saturday, we'll go late into the night. Feel free to visit during those hours, too!

Admission is $10 per person, whether you come for one day or for the whole weekend. Exhibit tables are free... just pay for admission. Vendors' tables are free... just pay for admission and donate an item for the raffle.

The CommVEx venue, the Plaza Hotel, is at the foot of the glittery Fremont Experience with all of its shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. Until June 24, rooms are still available at a discounted price for CommVEx - $49 each night for Friday and Saturday and $29 for Sunday through Thursday (not including room tax). Call the hotel at 1 800 634-6575 or 1 702 386-2110 and mention CommVEx to the reservations operator, or visit http://www.plazahotelcasino.com and try your luck at getting an even cheaper price on-line for a room. If the Plaza Hotel is not to your liking, there are plenty of nearby hotels, like its sister hotel across the street, the Las Vegas Club Hotel, http://www.vegasclubcasino.net, or the Main St. Station Hotel to the north, http://www.mainstreetcasino.com
