The Metal Construction Association (MCA) Task Force is now taking contestant registrations for the Fifth Annual Metal Roofing Championship Games to be held this year at METALCON Oct. 10-12, 2018, in Charlotte, N.C. MCA is seeking ten teams of two participants for the competition. Each team should be from one company and planning to attend METALCON all three days of the event.
Contestants can test their metal roofing skills by competing in five challenges which will be held on each of the first two days of the event. Each day, five pre-registered teams, with two contestants each, will compete for cash awards. On Friday, the third day, the teams from Wednesday and Thursday with the most collective points will compete for the grand cash award and title of MCA METALCON 2018 National Metal Roofing Champion. In 2017, $8,500 cash was awarded over the 3-day competition.
Challenges include the Retrofit Panel Installation Challenge, Screw Gun Challenge, Hug-A-Roof Challenge, Standing Seam Challenge and Let It Snow Challenge. Each team will be provided required power and hand tools, gloves and safety glasses and contestants will be required to wear rubber sole non-slip shoes.
Many other MCA member companies support this event with their cash donations. These donations are used for the cash awards that are presented to the teams that win each of the challenges, each day’s collective points winner and the grand cash prize for the championship title.
