    Mego Meet 2016 - Back to Skokie

    We are pleased to announce that Mego Meet will return to the Skokie Doubletree, June 17th – 18th of 2016. Space is reserved on Thursday June 16th for dealer set-up and “Thursdaybird” arrival, with the event officially running Friday through Saturday. Instructions will be posted soon for reserving hotel rooms and purchasing dealer tables.

    I cut and pasted the above from the newsletter. With any luck our room block at the Doubletree will be ready for booking next week, along with the registration page for attendees and dealers. The meet is one week later this year for two reasons. We're hoping to avoid conflicts with graduations that have plagued us in the past, and the later date also gives us access to a larger dealer space at the Doubletree.

    Look for more updates next week.

    Woohoo! I really enjoyed Skokie and hope to get there earlier this year so I can hang out more.

        Very Cool... I panicked when I saw the Date originally, but it works out for me... Senior Prom For Dominique is the Week Before and Graduation is the Week after and no testing as well. We have a Federal Election to worry about the last week of June at Work but if push comes to shove it's nothing a Little Sniffle can't fix

          Some panic here as well, as we sometimes have inventories towards the end of June. In the past, still wouldn't have mattered as I had enough pull to get it changed but since we've merged with another company, I don't know if my voice alone could get it changed. However, I let my boss know and they haven't scheduled anything beyond January yet, so he wrote this time off for me in his book in advance of us being able to put in vacation time. Looks like I'm good. Whew!

            We hope the date change is a plus and not a minus. We've lost a lot of folks to graduation and recital conflicts over the past three years, and that combined with the alternative of looking for a different hotel made it seem like the right move.

              For a minute there I thought you said 'Rectal Conflicts'?!

                I'm still undoing the damage of missing last year's Rectal.

                        I believe this again conflicts with one of my military reenactments -- if not two of them -- but I will make every effort to attend.

                            WAIT! Hold the phone! I was trying to figure out how to say I couldn't come because of the usual date.

                            Now, I will only have to determiner if I can do a trip to Chicago on the tail end of a vacation with family and friends.

                              Which of the two airports is the best option? Im assuming O'hare. Whats the travel time from Skokie to said airport? Seeing if I can squeeze this trip in this year.
