Can You Be the Fastest Trowel on the Block?
Compete in Las Vegas to build the biggest and best block wall
By Tim O’Toole
The Fastest Trowel on the Block Competition showcases the speed and skill of a journeyman mason and how important teamwork is in accomplishing a final product. With the time limit that is placed on the contestant, they must make certain decisions based on the judging criteria set forth. Only those journeymen masons who have the skill, confidence and courage to face-off with the industry's best will be invited to compete. Winners of the contest will take home over $10,000 in cash and prizes!
There are only a handful of stalls available on a first-come basis for those who are up to the challenge to prove they are the best!
To submit a team (consisting of one journeyman mason and two tenders), download the registration form and send the completed form and payment to the MCAA by December 19, 2008. The registration fee is $250 and must be paid at the time of registration. Further information on rules, meeting locations, schedules and contest check lists will be sent after teams are confirmed.
