Amazing what compaction can do

It's Friday night Adrian has headed down to Chch for the first of the series of weddings that is the lot of the average 27 year old. . .

Tony and I not long home from dinner.  

Last weekend out at Brighton beach on Chch was the first NZ sandcastle competition.  The winner and runner up from the San Diego competion were brought to Chch.  The winning castle - not sure if it was this one or not took 2 tonnes of sand.  Winners said the skill was a combination of sand, water and compaction

Now in our time we have made a  few sandcastles.  I know we have used sand and water - so it must be the compaction we have scrimped on as I am sure none of ours looked this!
As William and Chloe's wedding is on the beach do you think this might be a reception activity?
Whatever you do this weekend may it involve some fun and maybe compaction!
