METALCON

2016 MCA Metal Roofing Championship Games

THE RESULTS ARE IN!

On Wednesday and Thursday October 26 and 27th the Metal Construction Association (MCA) sponsored their 3rd annual Metal Roofing Championship Games at the Metalcon International tradeshow in Baltimore, MD. 

 

The event was sponsored by Triangle Fastener Corp., Roof Hugger, LLC, D.I. Roof Seamers, S-5!, Drexel Metals Inc. and New Tech Machinery.  Award sponsors were Akzo Nobel Coatings Inc., ATAS International Inc., Atlas Bolt & Screw Company, The Bradbury Group, Chicago Metal Supply and Fabrication Inc., Designandbuildwithmetal.com, Englert Inc., Modern Trade Communications, Inc., Novagard Solutions, PAC-CLAD Petersen Aluminum Corp, SFS intec and Valspar.

 

Each day had five “Battles”, inspired by this year’s theme “Battle Stars Over Baltimore” in honor of the birthplace of our Star-Spangled Banner.  The battles were appropriately named the Triangle Fastener “Screwgun Challenge”, Roof Hugger’s “Hug-A-Roof”, New Tech Machinery/Drexel Metals’ “Install-A-SSR Roof”, D.I. Roof Seamers’ “Seam-it-Up” and the S-5! “Let-It-Snow”.

 

Ten teams of two contestants each pre-registered to compete during the two-day event.  The contestants represented construction companies; Thomas Phoenix International of Easthampton, NJ; DYMI Construction, Inc. of Morrisville, PA; Hardin Construction, LLC of Union Bridge, MD; Intermountain Roof Advisors of Salt Lake City, UT; Rosselli Roofing and Siding of Wantage, NJ; William Molnar Roofing, Inc. of Riverview, MI; ARCON of Vanceboro, NC; Mad Metal, LLC of Arden, NC.

 

A total of $5,800 was awarded to the Battle winners this year.  The top awards for each day were a Grand Prize and a Best Quality.  The winner on Wednesday for both the Grand Prize and Best Quality awards was Joe Allen and Paul Kulb of Thomas Phoenix International and on Thursday the same was awarded to Dennis Duce and Gonzolo Tellez of Intermountain Roof Advisors.  Dennis Duce said “It was an Honor to be part of this event and we looking forward to competing next year again”.

 

Next year, the event will be held in Las Vegas, NV on October 18-20.  The MCA Roofing Games Committee plans to make this event a hallmark to the Metalcon International Tradeshow by awarding a National Metal Roofing Championship.  To present this award, the overall winner of each of the two days will return on the third day of the show for a competition to compete for the title of National Metal Roofing Champion.
