Sand set to fly at Broulee December 31st

The nineteenth Broulee New Year’s Eve sandcastle competition is on – surprisingly at Broulee this New Year’s Eve (in front the North Broulee toilet block) .

“It’s  wonderful watching adults behave like kids and kids behaving like kids moulding our compliant sand into exotic shapes,” said John and Deb Waser of the Broulee Mossy Point Community Association.  “Where else can you see sharks, turtles and space ships crowded together on the beach.  We’ve got a heap of prizes generously donated by local businesses for our three categories of “sculpture, sandcastle and junior”.

Entries can be registered on site from 2.00pm with the sand sculpturing to start at 4pm and conclude at 5pm.  There is a maximum of 5 per team except for family or junior teams which can have additional members under 5 years of age.  Only normal beach buckets and spades, ice cream containers and water spray bottles can be used.”
