It was 1/1/11, 9 forces came together to do battle over the the great sandy tundra of Bournemouth betwixt groynes 23 and 24.
Here's T's entry, an awesome replica of the O2 Arena complete with Take That tour bus.
Tracey Mc, ITA, Dr Bird, Nursey Bang Bang, The Twins, Miss Cream Tease and 2 Swedish Snowcastling experts Svenson and Ninason.
Here's my effort, a selection of diseased internal organs from Bill the Duck including lungs at the bottom and a heart and kidney composite (Hidney) at the top
Here's Dr Bird with his monster rock machine complete with miniature amp
A hearty time was had by all and the judging public deemed Miss Cream Tease with her Turtle the winner. The Twins were robbed with their new civilisations and beached fish efforts.
Take a look at the short sand documentary to see all the efforts and some excellent bubbling action.

We'll be back next year with more sand and more creations!
