Our Venue

We're excited about the Westin Chicago North Shore Hotel in Wheeling which has a lot to offer and hosts other events of comparable size. We have a great working relationship with their senior staff who go out of their way to accommodate us. They provide plenty of meeting rooms for all our needs plus hospitality where we can provide meals, snacks, and libations, all included in your registration fee. The rooms are extremely comfortable.


Entertaining and Educational

A plethora of programs was offered in years past. You can expect to see some repeats of popular programs and many new ones as well. As usual, you will not be disappointed, other than trying to decide which program you'd prefer to see and which ones you'll have to miss because there are too many great ones offered at the same time. And as always, we will offer many tournaments and round-the-clock game playing.

What about children?

Bring the kids! Several dedicated volunteers have created a kids' track at our functions. Over the years, we've ironed out the details during our Monthly Gatherings and past HalloweeMs. We are pleased to offer you and your kids a wide variety of activities throughout the long weekend. Babysitting will be offered two of the days and WeeM programs tailored for the kids will be highlighted.

Ask not what WeeM can do for you, but what you can do for WeeM!

You may not see them, but you see what they do. Volunteers are the caretakers of our haunting! They earn collectible WeeM pins and entries into the Volunteers' Raffle. They are adored by WeeM ghosts and goblins, and are protected from evil spells. If you're interested in helping to plan this awesome event, please contact our Chair .
