FREEPORT — Many people grew up playing in the sand and building sand castles, but groups of competitors took their sandy construction skills to the next level as they participated in the inaugural Sand Castle and Sculpture Challenge. 

Rescheduled from its original June date, Saturday's challenge took advantage of clean sand, bright sunshine and clear blue skies.
