 Next FCUG meeting - Sunday, Feb. 18

Happy Valentines, C= and Ami aficionados!
The Fresno Commodore User Group has its next meeting from 11 a.m. to 2:00+ p.m., Sunday, Feb. 18 at --

Bobby Salazar's Mexican Restaurant
2839 North Blackstone Ave. (corner of Blackstone and Michigan)
Fresno, California
(559) 227-1686

In addition to the Plus/4 and VIC-20 platforms at the this month's meeting, Alex says that he will be bringing in his Draco Casablanca (Amiga-based). Last seen several months ago, this time the machine is in fully-working condition, and Alex will go over its features. Just in case he doesn't show up, we'll bring in a classic Amiga 500 and run some goodies, like Shoot 'Em Up Construction Kit and the Trojan Lightpen.
For the Commodore 64, it's time for virtual reality... virtual realtiy with the VR64 glasses and accompanying program, Street Defender! Developed by Jim Happel, “the VR64 is the world's first virtual reality goggle for the Commodore 64.” In Street Defender, earth's cities have been invaded by “green exoskeleton bug warriors.... Mankind has set up Street Defenders on every corner to fight the invaders.” Punch, throw knives, shoot bullets, throw grenades, and collect power-ups.
With Maker Faire 2018 coming up in May, it looks good that there will be a Classic Computer's exhibit there, and we'll talk about having interactive Commodore, Amiga, and Texas Instruments TI-99 4A (!) set-ups for the Maker Faire attendees.

Truly,
Robert Bernardo
