Thanks Kathy!

Sounds like a great event Kathy.

Each week, the frost park challengers have battled it out at Frost Park in a sort of Theater in the Round.

Now we get to see the Hilltop Artists in Residence make trophy for Lance Kagey("Loves the MM Bridge so much .....") for prevailing in a Frost Park Chalk Off Episode.

The expectations are high for constructing Lance's trophy which no doubt will be well photographed. We look forward to the event and the glass trophy produced.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!!

This is going to be so cool - Thanks for doing this for us. Please let us know if we can bring anything, too. Afterwards, if any chalkies want to head back to Frost to clean last week's chalk, we could do that. (But that's another topic and another blog.) We're sure looking forward to this evening!

by NineInchNachos on 7/9/2008 @ 1:01pm
we should be there after 6pm

Wow. That's a high tech cake.

The frosting must have taken hours.

Thanks again to Kathy and company for sponsoring that recent chalk off and letting us enjoy their hot shop.

Those pics are great!

Thanks for sharing them Kevin...

And I want to wish Kathy another Happy Birthday blogosphere style.

Thanks again for letting us all in...

Oh I would have totally been there had I been a good blogger and read the actual feedtacoma front page yesterday (sorry Kevin). Dang.

by Dave L. on 7/10/2008 @ 10:28am
We owe YOU the thank you, Kathy! What a fun learning experience. It's so neat when you can also feel the heat. Yummy food, too. Thanks to you and the crew also for being so kind and generous to my little future glass-blowers.

by droid116 on 7/10/2008 @ 12:25pm
Had a great time. It was my first time at the hot shop and it was fascinating. I have some pictures but will take a little time to get them posted.
