Celebrating its 4th Annual metal roofing competition to be held at this year, the MCA Games Task Force has finalized the event schedule.  Being held October 18-20, there will be five challenges each of the first two days.  In recognition of the METALCON venue being held in Las Vegas this year, the appropriately named theme is “Aces of Las Vegas” for this event. 


Each day, 5 pre-registered teams with 2 contestants each will compete for cash awards each day.  On Friday, the third day, the two teams from Wednesday and Thursday that had the most collective points will compete for the Grand Cash Prize of $8,500 and title of “MCA METALCON 2017 National Metal Roofing Champion”
