and will be a competitor at the 19th annual Sand Castle Days starting
on the 19th of October. The Bay Watch Foundation promotes a clean

The next episode of "Sandblasters - Extreme Sand Sculpture" was filmed this past weekend in San Diego. Can't get too specific - don't want to ruin the show for everyone! - but South Padre Island and the Lone Star State were well-represented this time, and sandy feet came home with a big --- smile on her face. Thanks in no small part to the efforts of her way-talented partner Kirk Rademaker.

The show is scheduled to debut on the Travel Channel on March 4, 2006.

See more photos here.

All in all it was a great weekend for the Sons of the Beach Sandcastle Wizards!

"Walter McDonald, known as "Amazin' Walter", and his daughter Christy (the clown) McDonald, of Padre Island, Texas, work on their sand sculpture "Fit For A King" on Friday afternoon at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront on the first day of the North American Sandsculpting Championship."

And when the results were in on Saturday "Fit For A King" won the peoples choice award, the sculptors choice award, and 3rd place in the team category.... eeeeha!
