Com­pe­ti­tion to find kings of the sand cas­tles

Wanneroo Weekender - - News -

LEDGE Point Coun­try Club will host the ninth an­nual Ledge Point Sand­cas­tle Com­pe­ti­tion on Satur­day.

The Jan­uary 28 event will be at the swim­ming beach be­tween the groynes at Ledge Point from 9.30am to 12.30pm.

Or­gan­iser Sh­eryl Demp­ster said 33 fam­i­lies took part last year, with a to­tal of 250 par­tic­i­pants.

“There were very cre­ative sculp­tures, some be­ing cars, sea an­i­mals, a pool ta­ble and all these are em­bel­lished with ex­tra ma­te­ri­als to make them look real,” she said.

Cat­e­gories in­clude ‘fam­ily’, where peo­ple can com­pete in groups of up to six with a max­i­mum of two adults per group.

In the seven years old and un­der and eight years old and over groups, team num­bers will be capped at four.

The event starts with shov­els into sand at 9.30am, then Perth-based Ja­nine Ge­orge and Wendy Ram­say will judge the sand­cas­tles from 11.15am and present prizes at 12.30pm.

There will be a free sausage siz­zle at the club from 11.30am.

For more in­for­ma­tion, call Ms Demp­ster on 0437 787 679.
