Whow­ill be king of the sand­cas­tle?

Marlborough Express - The Saturday Express, Marlborough - - FRONT PAGE -

Do you con­sider your­self a dab hand at build­ing sand­cas­tles, or maybe you just like muck­ing around at the beach?

A con­test is be­ing held this month to crown the re­gion’s best sand­cas­tle builder.

The Sport Tas­man con­test aims to add a bit of fun to the fam­ily-favourite beach ac­tiv­ity by again turn­ing it into a com­pe­ti­tion to find the mas­ter­pieces across the top of the south.

The con­test kicked off in midDe­cem­ber and runs un­til the end of January,

Dur­ing this pe­riod friends, fam­i­lies or solo builders can cre­ate and pho­to­graph their cas­tles for a chance to win spot prizes.

Sport Tas­man com­mu­nity sport man­ager Les­ley McIn­tosh says the rules for the con­test are sim­ple; sand­cas­tles must be made of sand in ei­ther a sand­pit or at the beach, al­though nat­u­ral ob­jects like wood, feath­ers, plants and shells can be used for dec­o­ra­tion.

They must also be built by hand, with pow­ered ma­chin­ery not al­lowed.

To en­ter send a pho­to­graph of your sand­cas­tle to re­cep­tion@sport­tas­man.org.nz by Fe­bru­ary 1.

The win­ning en­try and oth­ers will fea­ture on Sport Tas­man’s Face­book page.

En­try is free to Marl­bor­ough, Nel­son, Tas­man, Kaik­oura and Buller res­i­dents, but all en­trants must reg­is­ter at sport­tas­man.org.nz/sand­cas­tle.
