"Look!! TREES!!!"

Just my luck: I get my first - and only - major collapse of the year at the last contest of the season. We say that you are not pushing the sand hard enough if you don't have the occasional collapse -- but I wish it hadn't happened during this, my 9th contest of the year. I think I had a pretty strong piece going right into the home stretch. See more before and after photos here.

Congrats to my partner, fellow SoB Amazin' Walter, for walking off with 2nd place and people's choice awards.

look, trees!

Quebec International Sand Sculpting Championship - 8/2000

It is a super huge honor to even be invited to this puppy and now I know why everyone wants to go. The sand quality is excellent, the organizers appreciative and accommodating to a fault. I did not get to see much of Quebec, but if I ever get invited back I will certainly rectify the situation.

The Quebec contest this year was actually two competitions: solo and 2 person team.

Below is the piece I did for the solo division. At right is the piece I did with my team mate (and the current object of my affection) - Kirk Rademaker.
