And they're off - taking part in the flipper races

Two groups struggle to win in the tug-of-war

It was warm and sunny with ominous clouds gathering over Lake Huron as the Youth Waves coalition held its annual International Youth Day at Station Beach Saturday.

A small crowd joined in the games, fun and food, with a group from Elmira taking part in a few rounds of beach volleyball as well.

Besides the ever-popular flipper races across the sand, the games included tug-of-war, three-legged race, and wheelbarrow race, as well as sandcastle building and beach volleyball. Ryan Berry of www.buzzcutz studioz.com kept the tunes rolling throughout the event.

The youth coalition has 15 members and is currently working on an application to have Kincardine designated a youth-friendly community. Check out the survey on the front page of the Kincardine Times, as well as letters to the editor for letters from the coalition about this application process.
