In keeping with the spirit of this being a toy show, I booked every available room and will now sublet them at twice the rate.

Excellent - I'm off the hook!

Can I refer to you as "Head Wrap" in the future?

Martin, I believe you cause I just tried to book and it said no rooms are available. So what is your going rate? Guess I'll have to call it in

I have everything from Baltic to Atlantic Avenue.

I think you should stay on the B&O or Shortline. Treat like Mego Meet 2020: Snowpiercer

I am making the pilgrimage for the first time this year, and considering flying in for the Thursday HOF dinner. I'm really looking forward to meeting so many like-minded Mego brethren.

I am not sure when the actual dealers room opens for the show. I can see 7am to 5pm for registered attendees on Saturday. And at least 4 panels with Mego Corp.2020, Aw Yeah Comics, Vintage Mego, and the customs auction is on Saturday as well.

Is Mego Meet a Thursday, Friday, and Saturday event for shopping the dealers room for registered attendees? Or is the dealers room open only on Saturday?

You're welcome to shop all three days. I expect Thursday will be hit and miss as I doubt everyone will be set up, but I expect a fair amount.

I just called a few minutes ago and they said all the rooms are booked for our block. They told me to call back Monday and speak to a manager?

Thank you for the heads-up. We either have unprecedented demand, or the system shorted us some rooms. I'll track down our meeting planner on Monday. I can get a report for rooms for each day, but we're only one day in so I haven't even got my first one yet.

In that case I wonder if it's just Wednesday night that is all booked. The number set aside is smaller.

Unfortunately, you won't have to worry about my set up this year :smiley1: . First Mego Meet Tom and I will miss in 15 years. Just remember to raise one for us in the Mego Suite :)

New job and scheduling of the Meet. Unfortunately it will break the string of 15 years (16 if you count Mego Con the year before Mego Meet) for me and Tom. Only 2 left from the original "Super 8" from the Wheeling days. Brian Heiler and Doc Mego are the last 2 that haven't missed one yet. Trust me...I'm not happy about missing it this year. Mego Meet is my "Extended Family" reunion every year. I will miss all of my fellow Mego brothers and sisters this year.

I got our room booked for thurs, fri, sat. It was a bit weird, had something like a whole week selected by default for Antique Toy Show, but worked.

I have not proceeded with the actual meet registration however. When I click the PayPal button and get redirected to PayPal...something is odd.

It's the same address as I used for set-up last year - davidleeralph@yahoo.com. I can't use my regular email address because my personal paypal is tied to it. The forward function for my megomeet address kept screwing up.

Now there will be a thread on some Facebook page that says I'm embezzling registration fees. Maybe I am, to fund a trip to scenic Wheeling WV.

Sincerely,

I thought I was Scott lol.

(I also thought we were keeping the Wheeling plan on the D.L.--isn't the Kruger Museum honorary wing renovation supposed to be secret? And don't forget Gus Gorman is funnelling those half-cents).
