PRGE (Portland Retro Gaming Expo) is occurring on Oct 20-22 in 2017.

 

Be there or be square (or at least as square as an Intellivision pixel from a STIC chip on a CRT).

Too soon.....just kidding! :)

 

Easy for you to say, you live just around the corner or at the end of the block from this,I wish i was that close.

 

I will try my best to make it back to this, my kids are at the 18-21 age stage so money will come into play this year.

 

Thanks for the post it is a great retro event for all! :thumbsup:

I looked into taking a train but sadly there are no stations near my location. Unless someone wants to split a room, I doubt I can afford the airfare for this year's show.

Is your closest airport Louisville, KY?

Southwest won't allow to search for tickets for Oct, yet. Need to wait another month, or so.

But looking in Sept, from Louisville to Portland will be $400-450 round trip.

I will be moving back to Ohio this summer. The nearest station is over 50 miles away from my hometown. It's fly or nothing. Hopefully I can figure something out.
