The International Training Institute’s annual sheet metal competition will have a new category this year: detailing.

The category, which is open to apprentices and journeymen-level sheet metal workers, will give contestants the chance to win a Dodge pickup truck at the March 6-10 contest in Las Vegas.

Clyde Fujimoto, a project manager and detailer at Hawaii’s Air Center Inc. said he was excited about the chance to win.

“Talk about opportunities,” he said. “This is one of the most significant opportunities in my sheet metal career.”

The other detailing contestants are: Dan Beyersdorf, Saginaw, Mich.; Charles Dario, Howell, New Jersey; Steve Datwyler, Las Vegas; David Dias, San Ramon, Calif.; Jaymes Fleming, Woodinville, Wash.; Fujimoto, Honolulu; Randy Girard, Madison, Wis.; Joey Hovarter, Moore, Okla.; Ryan Israel, Kansas City, Mo.; Josh Menz, Rochester, N.Y.; Charles Wolff, San Antonio; and Jason Yager, Chicago. “I have been drawing for almost 40 years, and to be a part of this contest experience is the highlight of my career,” said Dario, a CAD and drafting instructor with Sheet Metal Workers union Local 27 and a sketcher for Thomas Sheet Metal in New Jersey. “The qualifying round was a bit more difficult than I expected. It was, however, not too far removed from the day-to-day type of scenario we are all accustomed to on the job.”
