Registration is open now - admission is still only $25, tables are an additional $40. If you haven't been to Skokie yet, this is your last chance. We'll be rotating to a new city in 2018, so get that last taste of Mego Milk while it's still fresh.

Feel free to post questions here. Brian will have the Facebook page updated soon.

I'm down for getting the party started early again... who else is coming in Wednesday/Thursday?

I'm Wednesday. I'll pay the extra, not too concerned about cost for the one night. It'll be totally worth it to relax, do some toy and record shopping prior to the madness

Registered. Unfortunately, the transition from driving to flying means any extra days aren't happening this go around. I also don't have the days to burn as I did in the past. I will however enjoy not having to get up super early Sunday to beat traffic. So I'd be happy to catch breakfast with fellow straglers that might be left Sunday morning.

I got my plane tickets for Thursday to Sunday. My plane doesn't leave until 5pm on Sunday, so I'll be looking for stuff to do that day.

There is a Lego Expo Sat/Sun that I may check out: http://brickworld.com/brickworld-chicago/

So far we're set for Thursday to Sunday, would like to get there on the Wednesday, Especially if we are driving in. Scott is a wild card once again in the equation as his Mrs. Is with Child and is due for a July delivery. Fingers crossed for all to fall neatly into place.

I don't know if work will allow for it since I travel so much around then, but this year my big event got moved up to May instead of June... will have to look into it.

I am going to be there Wednesday - Saturday morning, if things work out. I won't be getting a table this year. My wife bought me Billy Joel tickets for my Birthday (Saturday June 17th) so I will be singing with the Piano Man!!

We are planning on making it this year! Looking forward to seeing everyone again. We'll be driving in so I'm debating getting a table. I have a couple very special larger items I am bringing and will need a place to set them out for everyone to see :yes:.

I have reserved a room for Fri and Sat nights. We will likely be coming up with my mother and an RV though. Can someone familiar with the area recommend a good campground with full hookups nearby?

What is the cut off date? This will be my first year attending, God Willing! Skokie is very far away so I have to make sure I can secure a plane ticket before purchasing my admission & table. If I do end up being able to attend, I will be the clueless chick standing in the lobby looking for help. :P

I would say by May 25 only because that's the hotel Reservation deadline, Even though you might be iffy I would book the hotel now and if you need to you can always cancel the Hotel reservation 24 hours before check in with no penalties if thats the way things break for you. That way it will give you more time to shop flights and then book the table.

I know it's late but I finally got my 2 tables. Me, Andrew and Adam are all set now I guess.

I missed the section to list them, but I know you know who they are. :)

Shoot, I finally registered for admission but never got a chance to put in my Museum ID name etc. So if you see a purchase for Larry Roberts & Jessica Owens, that'd be me :) See you all there!

...and of course I'll be in the air the week of the meet and not flying home (much less anywhere else) until that Friday afternoon. Maybe by the time the 20th anniversary event rolls around I'll actually be able to make it work.

Registered and paid for 1 table. Not going to bring a lot........... but what I do bring should make everyone happy :silly:.

Like most, I missed the spot to put my forum name so if you see a payment from Bill Lawrence, that's me. Also my wife, Cozette, will be with me.

Looking forward to it!

There totally weren't any boxes or fields to add info, so an order from a Justin Z******** in Flint is me.
