Links          Change & Updates to Commodore Pages

The annual SWRAP Chicago Commodore Expo was about to fall by the wayside in 2006, when it was rescued and turned into the Emergency Chicagoland Commodore Convention, held September 30, 2006. Although the show was given very short notice, over 50 people attended. Robert Bernardo was there and captured the action and the faces on film. If you have any questions or comments, please send Email.
