Masons from across the state converge on Gold Hill to compete in the ‘Super Bowl of Masonry’

Gold Hill — The Spec Mix Bricklayer 500 North Carolina Regional Series event is set to kick off at 11 a.m. on Nov. 14 at Ben Ketchie Park, 16815 Old Beatty Ford Road.
The competition is designed to test the speed, skill, and stamina of each participant by challenging them to build the largest and best 26-foot-long brick wall, with as few errors as possible, in one hour.

The winning team is determined by a judging panel who subtracts any mistakes from the total number of bricks laid on the wall. The mason with the highest brick count at the end of judging will be named “North Carolina’s Best Bricklayer.”

The total purse is estimated at $125,000. Dubbed by many in the industry as the “Super Bowl of Masonry,” 24 cities will play host to the best masons in their area. The stakes are high as only one mason and tender team per region will qualify for a chance to compete for the title “World’s Best Bricklayer,” in Las Vegas, at the World Championship on Feb. 5 during the World of Concrete expo.

For more information, contact Ryan Coyne, 404-702-5944 or Steve Bell, 704-294-5231.
