'Boarders' Hosts First Annual Sand Castle Contest
The “Boarders” 1st annual Rockaway Sand Castle Contest took place at Beach 96 Street last Saturday. Despite the hope for professional sculptors, amateurs came out and gave it their best. The first place winning castle was built by five inexperienced yet enthusiastic people who came down from Howard Beach to see the event and wound up entering. The photos show them at work. The sculpture remained unfinished due to the rise of tide.
