in most cases, from past experience, most anyone
can get into the convention centers...you need a pass
to get into the lectures and of course the vendor's space.
in some cases, it is like getting into the `white house` to
see the vendors.
i think the clayart room will be open without showing a pass.
at least, we won't ask for one.
just your orange dot. (and tea shirt.) or is that tee? don't
want to get political with our shirts.
we are all going to be in new territory. with our
association with NCECA drawing closer, the air will
be much clearer, and i do believe we will all be
very happy with this partnership.
i know i am.
we are all talking about a much clearer picture
for seattle. tampa hotels have been hell to work with.
(and, what i went through, dori at nceca had just as much trouble.)
no comps, no spaces without huge cost...so, this will
be a stop gap for us at the convention center. a new start.

This is a "finding our way" year with NCECA.
They finally acknowledge and recognize the role Clayart plays in the clay
community. They understand we share the common goal of education in the
We will both be stronger for the long run.
The Clayart room will serve to prove our worth.
We are open to all and best of all, we are free.
One can be quiet and hide in the shadows, absorbing all the wonderful
information that is generated, or say howdy and share your experiences.
Having a group of folks that deeply care about what has been established an=
another group that will finally communicate - what could be better?
