We’d like to have as many Commodore devices in one place at one time. It will look amazing!!! If you have something where “who has one” is empty please discuss here. So far we go back to 1967! Also, there’s plenty not on the list also, bring what you can. :slight_smile:


As for agenda, so far, we have myself, Ross from SAUG, Geoff’s amazing Phoenix machine, some game playing, the “Don’t Shoot the Messenger” demo and the machines themselves. If you’d like to speak about your experiences with Commodore please join in. We are still putting the agenda together.

Also we would love for you to buy some tickets. We are a charity and are self funded. I myself give over a substantial amount of money every month to pay the rent, as do other members and generous donors. Every dollar helps. The ticketing link is here:

So at this stage I’ll bring up my 128D, A1000 Phoenix/pistorm combo, Empty A4000 PCB. I have a couple of CBM dot matrix printers, but their ribbons are dry. I assume you have most everything else :grinning:

ok cool - sounds good. We’ve got a lot of gear so far. I’m waiting for about 10 packages to arrive next week, but they may not arrive on time, so closer to the day I might ask ppl to bring certain specific machines. I’ve even done bids on 3 Kim-1s on eBay so far. haha

You can easily renew ink ribbons with low-odour WD-40. We have some at west street
