Playing in the sand

According to Pat Petrucka, organizer of the International Sand Castle Competition, there was one entry in the professional category and nine in the family/team category. Petrucka, 45, says it's important to have events, such as this at Grand Beach. "You can only lay on the beach for so long," he said. Building a sand castle in the family/team category was Layton Brown and his 10-yearold son, Logan. "I'm just a labourer," said Layton. "He wanted to it in the worst way. And I wanted to spend time with him. The beach safety patrol officers even got in the act as they participated in the family/team category and created an entry with a safety theme which they called Safety in Sand. Beach safety patrol officers Summer Anderson and her sister Skye were seen creating birds out of sand whereas Sulaye Thakrar, Christian MacDonald, and Michael Moore were creating a kayak out of sand. "It's been good and it's been fun," said beach safety patrol officer Stephanie Kereliuk. "We're making sure everyone is staying safe and having fun - that's the number one rule." Kereliuk, 20, says the sand castle competition is a tradition at Grand Beach and that the regulars take it pretty seriously.
