I guess I am also thinking that I wouldn't worry too much about flight
patterns/prices for a local Code4Lib. With all of the hassles and
expense of flying, it is not typically a good option for someone nearby.

That's the weekend before Victoria Day. (The 24th of May is actually on the 24th of May this year!) Is there any American holiday happening in there?
