Reuben Judging — February 19-20

Reuben Judging Meeting

Turn off the stove, feed the cat, kiss your wife bye-bye, and make your way to Lincoln, NE so you can join in the fun and debauchery as we, the voting members of the National Cartoonist Society North Central Chapter, gather to judge our selected category for the 2009 Reuben Awards.

Mark your calendars —

Friday, February 19, 2010:
7:00 p.m. - We will meet in the bar at the Holiday Inn-Downtown, Lincoln, NE. This will be the crux of the evening.

Saturday, February 20, 2010:
8:00 a.m. - Breakfast in the H-Inn restaurant
9:30 a.m. - We’ll move downstairs to the conference room and the judging will begin.
Noon - LUNCH!!! After lunch, a little meeting to discuss the fall meeting, the Toonfest, and anything else that catches our fancy (within reason).

This year we’ve been handed the dubious honor of judging the NEWSPAPER COMIC STRIP category.

The National office would like us to have at least 7 voting members on hand to cast their votes for the best of the best in Newspaper Comic Strips for 2009. Naturally we’d like to have as many members on hand to join in the fun (and pick up the bar tab).

Our treasurer, Paul Fell is twisting the arm of the Downtown Holiday Inn (9th & P Streets, Lincoln). This is the same place were we voted on the Editorial Cartoons, last year. Hopefully all remodeling is done and paid for and they’ve forgotten that we were ever there. (Perhaps they’ve confused us with the Masonic Lodge New Member Initiations & Chili Cook Off.)

Please RSVP with Paul Fell at
Or Mike Edholm at
Paul will be able to give you details as room rates, after hours joints, escort services, etc.

Looking forward to seeing you.

Your pinheaded leader,
Mike Edholm
