City Floor Supply (CFS) held their annual “Nailer Day” event on March 21, 2019. More than 100 flooring professionals attended the event to test their installation skills and network with other flooring professionals. More than $10,000 in cash and prizes was handed out at the event.
As in year’s past, the much-anticipated “Fastest Nailer in the East” competition was the highlight of the event. Aacer Flooring sponsored this year’s contest which is a test of skill and speed, as competitors attempt to nail down 18 square feet of 2-1/4” red oak select flooring as quickly as possible. This year’s contest drew more than 60 competitors.
This year the “Fastest Nailer in the East” title and $500 grand prize went to Ricardo Silva of RM Floors, with an impressive time of 3:15. In second place was previous champion, Robert O’Connell of O’Connell’s Custom Concept, with a time of 3:26. Ricardo and Fernando of RM Floors won the team competition with a time of 2:33.
“It was so great to see customers having a great time networking with vendors and learning more about our industry’s new and innovative products. The crowd gets larger and the competition more intense each year,” says CFS Founder Mike Glavin.
Several manufacturer representatives were in attendance and contractors received exclusive discounts and had a chance to win equipment, supplies, and other prizes including a Primatech 250AR nailer, a 4K HD TV, a Galaxy RS-100 edger.
