I attended last year for the first time (I have to fly 3 1/4 hours from where I live to get to Toronto) and it was worth it. I met a lot of cool people, including Jim Brain who is well knowin in Commodore circles. I also managed to bring a bunch of interesting hardware back.

The best part of it was that I took all the broken, non-working Commodore stuff I had (and the odd working bit that I just didn't need) and it all disappeared from the giveaway table. I'm always happy to see that stuff go somewhere where it will be used or, at least, parts will be salvaged from it.

I sure wish I could have gone to something like this back in the day when Commodore was the king of the 8-bit world, but it was still a lot of fun to do it in 2011. I'd do it again this year if my budget allowed it (and still might if Air Canada has a screaming fare in the next couple of days, but I'm not holding my breath :) ).
