You must RSVP on our Eventbrite page above in order to reserve your team spot and join the fun.

The judging of the sculptures is rated on originality of concept, artistic execution, technical difficulty, carving technique, and utilization of the site. At the end of the day, everyone goes home with memories of a great day at the beach filled with fun, sand and sun.
