    Sand castle building contest ~ Galveston

    A few weeks ago mentioned that this contest would be coming up and its only two days away. I know the weather has been pretty wet lately in the Houston/Galveston area but it looks like it may dry up enough to keep the castles from disappearing with the tide. This Saturday June 3rd on East Beach...I'm sure there'll be at least a $5 entry fee per car. The competition begins at 10am and the judging is around 3pm.

    Use and bring plenty of sunscreen, water, food, some kind of cover for your head, if you haven't been in the sun very much this year consider a shirt with least half sleeves and shorts. Even if it doesn't look like it'll be very sunny you'll be surprised at how much sun you will get. If you have to leave for any of the previously mentioned items you may have to pay a re-entry fee and you may get stuck in traffic coming or going.

    Is this better than the Sand castle competition they hold at South Padre every year?
    Remember: no firmware upgrade will ever fix "lack of talent". ;)

    I think it may be the same organization that sponsors it. I haven't been to any other of these contest.

    OK, here's the deal. Go to East Beach at just after sunrise on SUNDAY after the competition. The light is not the best, it will be behind and to the left, but a good flash can even that out. No crowds, less sun, and 98% of the castles are still standing, with Galveston's Finest patrolling to insure they remain that way. I know that it is too late for this year, but file this info away for next year.
