In this video from Building Wisconsin TV, we check out the “Road to Las Vegas” as we visit the Regional Competition for the Spec Mix Bricklayer 500 in Fond du Lac. Host Stuart Keith starts with Jim Vick, State Dir. of the Bricklayers & Allied Craftworkers of Wisconsin (BACWI) for an introduction and Mike Rolf from Spec Mix provides an overview the competition. Then reigning 2 time Spec Mix Bricklayer 500 World Champion Michael Schlund tells what it’s like to compete, win a regional  to move on to the “Super Bowl of Masonry” in Las Vegas and win it two years in a row! We finish at a cement masonry project at DC Everest High School near Wausau with Steve Lewis from Lewis Construction to see how a concrete pour is done with his crew of cement masons from BACWI.
