For the second year in a row, the Commodore Computer Club was an exhibitor and one of this years sponsors for the Portland Retro Gaming Expo.

It was super exciting to once again represent all things Commodore to 1,500+ people at the 6th Annual PRGE which took place September 24 and 25, 2011.

Below are some of the highlights and memorable moments we caught on camera. Enjoy!
