Sound FX is always up for a challenge on or off the road, and off-road is exactly where Team Sound FX went when we hit Rehoboth Beach, DE to partake in the 39th Annual Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce (RBDBCC) Sandcastle Contest in September.
It may have been the 39th year for the contest, but it was our first time sculpting sand. We stepped onto the beach armed with our tools, like we were old pros, and quickly realized that it was “game on,” and this was high stakes sand sculpting. Participants had their areas roped off and shovels, buckets, and various carving and sculpting tools were scattered for two blocks on the beach in front of Funland.
The rules were simple; only natural beach elements along with water could be used to decorate and hold the structure together. After six hours of hauling numerous buckets of water to our sculpting area and countless shovels of sand being moved we successfully finished our masterpiece, “Jeep On The Beach.” One might think we would stick to something easy for our first experience, but that is not how Sound FX rolls. We went in with shovels blazing and sculpted a 360° sculpture of a Jeep crawling on rocks. Our teamwork paid off as we brought home the trophy for “Judges Favorite” in the Business Member category for our “Jeep On The Beach” sculpture.
This was truly a unique and fun experience that provided an opportunity to interact with our community while also being a positive team-building experience. Fun was had by all and we look forward to next year.
