Here's our schedule for our Feb. 21 National Cartoonists Society chapter meeting and cartoon award judging.
All activities will be held at the Dish restaurant in their lower level party room. Dish is on the corner of 11th and O Streets, right in the middle of Lincoln's downtown entertainment district. It is only a couple of blocks walk from the Downtown Holiday Inn (9th. and P) where some of our members are staying.
Right across O Street is a city parking garage, so you don't have far to walk from your car.
Just a reminder... the reduced rate for rooms at the Holiday Inn is on until Feb. 9. The rate is $94 a night for a double. For reservations call the front desk directly at 402-475-4011 and tell them that you are part of the "NCS N. Central" group.
Here's our schedule for Saturday, which, by the way is FREE to all comers. Our featured speakers will be:
- Cedric Hohnstadt- Minneapolis area illustrator & animator
- Tom Floyd- veteran comic book artist
- Jeff Koterba- Omaha World-Herald editorial cartoonist.
1-3pm- Meet at Dish (11th. and O), eat lunch and watch judging of NCS editorial cartoon division entries. We have received around 30 entry packets, so there will be lots of great work to see.
3-5pm- General business meeting and announcements. First speaker of the day.
5-6:30- Cocktails and dinner.
6:30-????- Our remaining two speakers will make their presentations. This will be followed by socializing into the night.
Participants are responsible for paying for their own food and drink during the Saturday schedule. Our chapter chair, Tom Richmond, refuses to pick up the tab for anyone to whom he doesn't already owe money.
