Judging a Master Sand Sculpting Contest

Judging a Master Sand Sculpting Contest

Currently, there is no unified judging system in use at professional level sand sculpting competitions. What that means is that each contest sets its own judging criteria and appoints its own judges.

Wonder Woman Still a Classic

NBC is not hot for Wonder Woman, having cancelled the show before it even aired on the network. You can read more about that here. I must admit I was a bit skeptical when I saw the new outfit that was previewed  a few months ago,  but it would have been nice to see at least a …
