    This past Meet we came into O'Hare, and from what I've been told, that's by far the best option. I'm trying to remember the travel time from there to Skokie, something like 45 minutes maybe?

      O'Hare is 12 miles from Mego Meet, Midway is easily 35.

          I dunno, I'd imagine that an Orlando-Chicago flight would be pretty reasonable.

            I fly to Orlando 4 to 5 times a year from Milwaukee, WI. It is really not that expensive.

              Very happy to see you guys & gals back in my neck of the woods again!

              And yes, flying into O'Hare is the more logical choice than Midway. However, traffic can be a nightmare coming to Skokie from either airport though, so keep that in mind when planning your arrival time if you have plans for that same day. Even though the actual distance isn't far from airport to hotel, the city traffic can be awful especially if you're trying to drive in the afternoon/early evening. So just keep that in mind.
              And if anyone chooses to fly into Midway for whatever reason (cheaper flights, etc.), I live over in that general area and will be coming from that direction, so I might be able to pick some folks up and provide a ride if necessary. Just let me know

                  Maybe there should be a banner on the front page of the Museum telling people about Mego Meet this year.

                  It's not a secret is it?

                    A banner that we could all share on FB pages, and on your site Doc.
                    That would be cool!
