The next PDX Commodore Computer Club meeting is scheduled for Friday, October 4, 2013 from 6:00 pm PST until 12:00 am PST.
Please note: Since this weekend (October 5th and 6th) is the 8th Annual Portland Retro Gaming Expo – PRGE 2013, the October 4, 2013 meeting is going to be pretty low key and probably not go until midnight since we’ve got a lot of last minute preparations to do for the PRGE 2013 Expo.
Ok, back to the meeting announcement: Club members, guests, friends and retro enthusiasts from the PDX and surrounding areas typically show up between 6:30 pm – 7:00 pm PST.
Our “first Friday of the month” meetings take place at Pied Piper Pizza located in Vancouver, WA which is approximately 30 minutes from downtown Portland, Oregon:
Pied Piper Pizza – 12300 NE Fourth Plain Rd. – Vancouver, WA 98682 – Get directions
Once inside Pied Piper Pizza, head straight back past the dart boards to the private banquet room #4. Look for Commodore computers. If you can’t find it, ask someone at the counter.
