There's a juried show reception?
No one has mentioned it to me, the juror.

I probably assumed that since we never had a whole Potters Council before. That's exciting. I wondered why it was so big!

Most NCECA attendees are in jeans and sweaters ... or khakis and shirts ... any one of a hundred variations of casual. Anyone in a shirt and tie is lost from another convention. : - )

Funny story ... When NCECA was in Baltimore the convention next door was the Mary Kay ladies. It was not difficult to spot who was with each convention ...
Hmmm ... That also happened in Seattle when Comicon was next door and we looked like the uptight ones!

John ... Which one of your gowns will you be wearing?
I'd hate to wear the same one and then be subjected to the "Who wore it best" judgements!

The black one with the silver trim and the side slit up to the thigh, of course.  I just can't decide on the shoes.  I hate walking in stiletto heels these days; hard on the legs. :P

Given the popularity of one of the Green Bay Packer's linebackers, a tee-shirt that says "I Play with Clay" would likely sell out in a heartbeat. Print 'em up; take the money and run.
