After discussion with the booking person of Toolbox LA and in light of the ever-moving dates of Covid-19 closings in the area, I am postponing the Commodore Los Angeles Super Show 2020 which was scheduled to be on April 25-26. I appreciate that Toolbox LA is willing to change the contract that I signed, and other dates later in the year have been offered. I will discuss this with members of the Southern California Commodore & Amiga Network and get their input. Then a new weekend will be chosen.
Thank you for your patience and understanding in this.

CLASS Presentations & Guests
Roger Van Pelt and CAD 3-D
Roger has a presentation on this early classic program, CAD 3-D from IHT Software. Though not as sophisticated as the German Giga-CAD, CAD 3-D has its own charms!
Doug Compton of the 10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast
Doug visits the show for the first time with “lots of 8 bit and Amiga stuff to show!”
Commodore Business Machines veteran and Scala developer Marc returns to CLASS and wants to show off Scala and DPaint tricks!
Evie Salomon and the BackBit cartridge
Evie “evietron” Salomon graces CLASS with her presence, and you can question her about her C64/128/VIC-20 BackBit cartridge. See http://backbit.io.
Robert will be on hand to show off his eternal enthusiasm for the Commodore line as well as relate his globe-trotting experiences for Commodore and Star Trek fandom.
