Metalcon’s show floor will be the site of a metal roofing skills competition later this month.

As part of the Oct. 26-28 sheet metal forming conference and trade show at the Baltimore Convention Center, the Metal Construction Association will sponsor the Metal Roofing Championship Games.

Working as teams, contestants will show their metal roofing skills in an attempt to earn part of the $5,000 in prize money available during the two-day event. Contestants will install self-drilling screws, install roofing panels and attach devices to roofs.

Contestants will be judged on speed and accuracy by members of the Metal Building Contractors and Erectors Association.

"The MCA Games Task Force has worked very hard this year to make this an outstanding and challenging event within the greatest metal construction event in the world — Metalcon," said games organizer Mark James of the MCA and Roof Hugger Inc.
