The Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) brings the Fastest Trowel on the Block back to World of Concrete/World of Masonry on Wednesday, Feb. 3 from 11:30 a.m.-12 p.m. Showcasing industry craftsmanship, this challenge is a testament of both the speed and skill of the industry's workforce. Only those journeymen masons who have the skill, confidence, and courage to face-off with the industry's best are invited to compete. This competition proves how important teamwork is in accomplishing a final product.

Grab you seat in the Gold Lot to witness journeyman masons, accompanied by their favorite tender, compete against one another in a show of both speed and craftsmanship. Each contestant's goal is to complete as much of a 30-foot-long wall as possible, using 8"x 8"x16" CMU and the provided mortar in a 20-minute heat. Contestants must have a high degree of workmanship using normal masonry practices and hand tools.
