My complaint

Why does every photo of me make me look like some wino who just wandered by? Who can I complain to about this? I think it's about time photos of me started looking handsome and intelligent. Someone has really dropped the ball on this.

Toonfest 2008 Chapter Meeting

We had a small but enthusiastic group of NCC members show up in Marceline during Toonfest for our fall meeting.

North Central Chapter
North Central Chapter members (L to R): Mike Edholm, Me, Cedric Honstadt, Ted Goff, Paul Fell, Eric Scott, Scott Holmes

Our meeting was very productive. We raised the following issues and voted on each:
  • Our annual meeting will be switched to March of each year to accommodate voting on the division we are assigned for the Reubens
  • This year's meeting will be in Lincoln, NE
  • A new officer post was created "Executive Vice Chairman"
  • The Executive is responsible for providing all alcohol for future meetings
  • Bucky Jones was voted into permanent office as Executive Vice Chairman
The Toonfest folks were very hospitable as usual. All the NCC members were invited to the private parties and functions where we were fed and watered until we could eat no more. What a great time. Special thanks to Mike, Paul and Bill (who couldn't make it) for helping organize the whole thing.

I have published a blog post detailing the Toonfest event and our participation in it. Check it out.

I enjoyed meeting and visiting with everyone there.
Look forward to the next meeting.

Photos from Toonfest 2008

It was great seeing everyone at the Toonfest this year. I've posted the photos I took for everyone to see at:

The photos for the online gallery are reduced to 800x600, so they aren't print resolution. If you'd like the full size photos (3264x2448) I'll be glad to put them in a zip file and send it to you.

Getting Ready for Toonfest...

... and our concurrent fall chapter meeting. I'll be arriving on Thursday evening, and am now emceeing the speaker events and speaking myself (!). I hope we'll see a good NCC turnout. remember all NCC members are welcome to the Dalton party on Friday, the private party at the Walt Disney home on Saturday and we may also me in the parade. Members attending please look up myself, Paul or Mike on arriving so we can get you the details.

Our meeting will be very informal, held on Saturday over lunch either in the park or in the Toonfest meeting rooms. We'll let the weather decide that one.

Hope to see everyone there!

Looking for stuff to show....

Remember gang — we're looking for CARTOONS to show at the Disney Toonfest. We want the North Central Chapter to have a terrific presence at the Toonfest and we need your help (and art) to accomplish that goal. So pack up a couple of pieces (Fell told me to remind you to matte you work — it looks better that way) and throw it in the mail. Don't send you comic book collection, laundry, or other bits of junk you're trying to get rid of... (No Buck. I'm not talking about you. Well, not just you.) The Toonfest is just 19 days away. Artwork is due (there) by the 15th, I think.
