You can almost hear the lion roar

Jamie Goodyer, Katrina Goodyer, and Tasmyn Wood were stoked that their sand lion won its category of the Festival of Sail Sand Modelling Competition this week. Judge Sonja Wallis, president of the Coffs Harbour Chamber of Commerce, which organises the festival, said the standard of entries was incredible and winners were difficult to choose. "We had about 80 to 100 entries," Ms Wallis said. "They went the whole length of the beach, from the Yacht Club to the Jetty." There were four categories, plus an overall most creative winner, and the lion won the open category. "The detail and definition of the lion was amazing, it was so huge and realistic," Ms Wallis said.
