Super Trowel Competition

Tutor, Charles Thorp, was a judge at the Super Trowel competition regional heat at Herts Regional College on 4th April where the winners will go to the finals at Milton Keynes Arena over two days.

Both the regional and the final is for adult bricklayers where they have to lay the most bricks in one hour and up to national standards. Last year’s winner was Charlie Collinson who laid 675 bricks in one hour and automatically qualifies for this year’s final in Milton Keynes.

The event will be attended by all the major construction companies, material manufacturers and tools suppliers. The event has been going for 35 years in USA and held in Las Vagas, the UK organisers were invited to Las Vagas this year as guests to experience the event in Las Vegas and see how its run.

There are plans for this years UK winner to be entered into the USA event and a possible junior event with UK apprentices joining the USA competition.
