Is there any reason why Clayart can't have a meeting room (aka the Alfred
reunion et all) or have a special Clayart Party after the confernece one
night? The breakfast is a nice place to meet in a more organized manner,
but I think that a good party would be a great way to actually meet and
spend time with other clayarters...? Think that we could get a room set
aside or perhaps have a few clayarters be neighbors at the host hotel and
be willing to have a _few_ guests over?

I'm interested in the Clayart pot trade that was mentioned in passing at
the breakfast...hmmm.

Karl in Eugene.
