Great American Baseball Tour — Day 19

Thursday, May 3, 2018

Today was a travel day. We left Colton, CA where we stayed for over a week and drove to Clovis, CA which is near Fresno, in the central part of the state. It was fortunate that we were able to schedule our trip to coincide with the ceramic conference.

Jim and I are both Certified Duncan Teachers and belong to I.A.D.C.C.T.  (International Association of Duncan Certified Ceramic Teachers). Their annual conference was the end of February, the same weekend as our 50th Anniversary. (But maybe we can go next year.) We also belong to two “local” chapters, North Coast Clay Pots and Cyberflyers. The first is based in the Toledo, OH area and is the closest chapter to Youngstown. The second is a cyber group that meets by conference call and Skype.

Tomorrow morning we will get to tour the Duncan plant; then registration and make-n-takes in the evening. Saturday and Sunday are classes all day. Monday there is a David Hoff workshop. This is a nice break in our baseball schedule. I am looking forward to meeting the folks we talk to every month on the phone, and to having a chance to paint something.
