If for some reason the main Claycord.com site crashes or slows down (we had over 200,000 people trying to access the site between 3pm-3:30pm on Sunday, and are getting hints of the same traffic today), please visit www.Facebook.com/Claycord. The Facebook site is open to everybody, but you can “like” it to get updates on your Facebook wall.
Stay tuned for further updates.
