Interesting story how history can be hiding in the strangest places...

It was an amazing 2 weekends of LEGO bridge building. Thank you to all the kids that had a go (and also to the parents who waited patiently for the kids to participate).

Last weeks leader Wiley somehow managed to more than double the strength of his original bridge to take out the title at 46.4kg! Jake and Zac came in second with a load of 43.6kg. Their bridge could have held more weight, but due to our inability to weight their bridge safely at the time we had to call off adding anymore weight.

Ethan's record from last week of 17.3kg takes out the 0 - 6yr category.

Tasmin and Jase Tilbrook brought in a surprise for us on the last day too. They had built a beautiful replica model of the Clarendon Bridge from LEGO. For such a tremendous effort they will be getting a LEGO set too. Tasmin will be bringing her bridge to show at the upcoming bridge celebrations on the 21st of July so you can admire it there if you didn't get a chance to see it.

We will be bringing the LEGO board setup to the July event too so kids can test out their bridge building skills once again.
