North American Sandsculpting Competition • Virginia Beach Neptunefest

Sept. 23-26, 1999



My Piece



I am really excited about participating in this event - VB has not seen an SoB sculpture since 1987, when we took second place in the team division at our very first master class contest.

We were all a bit concerned about the impact that nasty ol' hurricane Floyd might have on this event, but were very happy to hear that the beach is still there and the contest will kick off on Thurs. as scheduled.

Update 10/3/99 - My intentions were good but I am sorry to report I am running low on time and motivation. If I had managed to find a sponsor I would have felt obligated to put more time into these pages, but it just didn't happen. So - have thrown a few new pics up in no particular order and with no cutlines or alt tags - sorry, but until I can find someone willing to pay, my contest pages are going to reflect this new bad attitude : - (
