The Jim Butterfield Weekend

May 11 and 12, 1985

On the weekend of May 11 - 12, 1985, the MCCC and SCOPE (a Dallas Commodore user group) teamed up to bring Jim Butterfield to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex for a weekend. The weekend began with a banquet, continued with a couple of training workshops led by Jim Butterfield, and ended with a talk to the user groups led by Jim and Pete Baczor, the Commodore User Group Coordinator. This ending meeting also gave the group the first look at the C128 and the Amiga.
