Well I hope I booked the right hotel, it says Courtyard Marriott on Westbelt. I had points to use so group rate doesn’t apply.

That's the Right Hotel... The block has not been put up yet but you probably get a better deal using your points.

As soon as the new year came, I put my vacation days in. Looking forward to it, but the same time hoping I can save enough with WresteMania is my area this year only a few months before the Meet. Yes, I managed to do it before in 2013, but that was in the WV days when pickings had gotton a bit dry and I hadn't moved into the four figure area of purchases. Also want to book a flight ASAP as I would rather not take any more chances driving as I've now had two incidents (One in 2016 going to Chicago and last year). All that said, even with heaviest "big event" year to date, this wil surely be the highlight of my year as it always is.

The 13th is the Customego Hall of Fame dinner at 7PM. A nice way to unwind after a long day of travel. The 14th is the official set-up day. The 15th is the actual Mego Meet. And, the 16th is get the heck out of Dodge day. ;)

Hey everyone - REGISTRATION IS NOT OPEN YET!!!!!!!! I am still working on the verbiage and the Paypal buttons. I have refunded everyone who sent money. The way it's coming in I can't track it properly or in some cases figure out what is even being purchased. When it's ready, there will be an announcement. Unfortunately I can't cut and paste from last year, it all has to be redone on the Paypal side and it's a pain in the ***. I'm hoping it will be done sometime tomorrow, but until I say it's ready assume it isn't.

Finally booked my flight and car and still thankfully low rates. The only question at this point is where my budget will be at this year. With WrestleMania and it's associated events in my backyard this year on my birthday weekend, it took a bite out of my finances. Still, a couple of months to go and it will be quiet on the event front for a while, so I'm going to give it my best shot! Wouldn't be quite without some kind if big acquisition but I might have to live with that this year.

It's a dumb, sad story Jim but I have adopted a firm policy of not talking on the phone to USA toy collectors. For you, however, I will make an exception:-)

And I'm glad you dig my logo. I am thinking about going pro.

Two weeks from this very moment I'll be on the road to Columbus getting into town around 1PM and maybe I'll hit Big Fun before checking in since rooms will not likely be ready.

So what's the schedule for the Meet? Bringing 3/4ths of the family (the boy just got a job at the Golden Arches), and we're coming in Friday around noonish. Planning to go to the Lego Playplace, and then it's Mego time.

A few questions:

What time does the room open Friday night?

Is there a group dinner Friday night? Saturday night?

What time does the show start on Saturday?

If this is posted elsewhere, I apologize. I've honestly been so swamped at work I haven't been as engaged around here as I usually am.

You mean the Mego Suite? Probably around 6pm ish
No dinners Friday or Saturday night
Doors open at 8am on Saturday

With any luck I will have a schedule of events for Saturday posted tomorrow.

Oh, there isn't a "preview night" on Friday?

Keep in mind I haven't done a whole weekend since Wheeling, so I'm a bit behind the times. :wink_y:

So...there IS a preview night? As in the actual Mego Meet showroom/convention room is open?

I was aware of the Custom Mego Hall of Fame event, but am not arriving until Friday, so unfortunately I can't make that one.

The dealer room opens Friday as soon as Steve finishes setting up, I call it the Early bird, there is wheeling and dealing going on, the $25 admission covers people fr both days but you would have to reach out the Steve EMCEHAMMER to see if there is a Friday price to get in I am sure there is a rate for people who can only make it 1 day and not both.

So, from another post, there will be a Mego suite set up again to hang out, mingle and maybe work on some stuff? Came unprepared last year, but plan to bring a couple figures to work on this time.

yep - there's always a mego suite somewhere. One year it was my room:-) This year is same place as last year. I'll be in and out of it early Friday as it doubles as headquarters. At some point after all the Mego Meet stuff is out it will transition to Mego Suite.
