Get Ready for Sand Blasters 2007!

Mark March 4 on your calendar -- It is the debut of the newest episode of Sand Blasters: The Extreme Sand Sculpting Championship - the sand castle contest that is really a "blast!" Sand will fly and you can watch Team "Trowel and Error" - SPI's own sandy feet and her partner Kirk Rademaker - square off against 14 of the world's best sand sculptors.

I will be talking to Dan over at Louie's to see if we can get him to put it on the big TVs over there so we can have a Sand Blaster party - will be back to you with more info.

Why don't you see what it would take to get them to film a segment here on good old SPI.

I actually discussed the idea with them when we were filming this episode. According to the production person I spoke with, this is THE most expensive show the Travel Channel produces. It seems that the explosives are outrageously expensive and also the liability insurance associated with moving them to location as well as actual detonation. And then most of the production crew live in LA so they save a lot of money keeping it close to home (San Diego.)

They did have a lot more sponsors come on board after the first episode, so perhaps if the ratings are even better this year, increased sponsorship will allow them to take the show to other beaches. I have already assured them that they would find a friendly beach here in South Texas and will continue to deliver that message every chance I get, of course.
