The Mason Contractors Association of America is inviting all journeymen masons to compete in the annual Fastest Trowel on the Block Competition presented by QUIKRETE at the MCAA Convention at World of Concrete/World of Masonry in Las Vegas on February 4, 2010.
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 a time limit 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 should compete. Winners of the contest will take home over $10,000 in cash and prizes including a BX-4 Masonry Saw donated by MK Diamond Products, Inc., tool bags donated by Marshalltown Company, and Grout Grunts donated by Grout Grunt!
