On Dick Estel's page (http://www.dickestel.com/commvex18.htm) are supposed to be the last photos posted of Commodore Vegas Expo 2018.  To my chagrin, these are the last, last photos from the show!

These pics come from the cellphone of SCCAN member Mario L..  Can you guess which photos were taken on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday of the Commodore Vegas Expo?  :)  I'm glad for these pics, because I myself didn't take enough.
