It's a tradition that a party of cartoonists and their friends and families gather at Bunny Hoest's home on Long Island's North Shore. She graciously opens up "Hoest Castle" to something like 100 to 200 of us. I think this year it may have been about 150 people.
Here are just a few of my photos.

That's Bob Lubbers in the chair, and George Booth at the mike.
