NCMCA Annual Golf Tournament
The Metrolina Chapter of the North Carolina Mason Contractors Association (NCMCA) held their annual golf tournament in Concord on Sept. 14. One thousand dollars of the proceeds will go to Hurricane Katrina relief, with the balance being donated to Charlotte area masonry vocational instruction classes. Also, CEMEX agreed to triple any hurricane relief money that the chapter donated.
Chapter President Chris Bruner awarded first place to the CEMEX team of Lee Amick, Gregg Swartz, Joe Canitano and Tod Cox. Second place was the Central Piedmont Chapter team of Ricky Sutphin, David Zenns, Kenny Duncan and Scotty Showerman, followed by the Gates Construction team of Mark Nelson, Bob Gates, Steve Young and Al Borenkamp finishing in third place. Mark Nelson won the longest drive competition, and Keith Magee, Kent Cloninger and Bob Gates received closest-to-the-pin recognition.
For upcoming events, NCMCA will have a masonry exhibit at the North Carolina School Boards Association Conference at the Koury Center in Greensboro, Nov. 13-16. Contact Paul LaVene at (336) 852-2074 for more information.
Also, the North Carolina SkillsUSA Scholarship Golf Tournament will be held at Pinehurst on Nov. 18. For more information, contact Glenn Barefoot at (919) 807-3887.
