Celebrating its 5TH Annual National Metal Roofing Championship Games competition to be held this October at METALCON in Charlotte, NC, the MCA Metal Roofing Games Task Force is now taking contestant registrations. Ten teams of two participants each are needed for the competition. Teams should be from one company and planning to attend METALCON all 3 days of the event.

Again, this year, there will be five challenges each on Wednesday and Thursday, October 10 and 11. The Team that scores the highest collective points each day will be required to return on Friday October 12th for a run-off competition. The winning Team on Friday will be recognized as the 2018 MCA METALCON Metal Roofing National Champion and receive a Grand Cash Prize of $2,000. Last year, $8,500 cash was awarded over the 3-day competition.
