We are in the planning stages for the 2nd Annual Clay Olympics which will be held at Odyssey Center for Ceramics Arts -January 8, 2014 from 6:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Tish and Melissa have again, generously agreed to donate $100 per event as prize money. And Brian has agreed to donate the clay. I am looking for a few more sponsors so we can have several prizes. I would like to have :
1st prize -$100,
2nd prize $50 and
3rd prize - $25 .
So that means I need a $300 donation and a $150 donation. If anyone is willing to donate it would be great and would make this a really fun event.
Also if anyone else wants to get in on the planning - let me know. Mellie and I are just going to wing it unless someone else steps up.
So far the events are:
