World Slating and Tiling Championships 2002
[(http://www.traditionalroofing.com/World-Championships-2002.htm]

The 15th International Federation of Roofing Trades (IFD) World Congress will be held November 5-9 in Dublin, Ireland this year.

Sponsored by the Irish Roofing and Cladding Contractors Association, the Delegate cost will be EUR400 plus 21% tax (about $450.00 US) per person attending the Congress. The World Slating and Tiling Championship for Young Roofers coincides with the Congress, and will take place at the same time, also in Dublin, at the Plan Expo 2002.

Plan Expo is Irelandís premier construction industry event with over 250 trade stands and 7,500 visitors. Delegates to the IFD Congress will be able to view both the championships and the Expo. The Championship is a three day competition between 16 or so countries. A pair of the countryís best students, with the help of an older mentor, install slate and tile on roof mock-ups (see diagram at link above) and are judged accordingly. The winners receive gold medals.

The IFD Congress is complete with a welcome reception at the world famous Guinness Brewery and a Gala dinner/entertainment award ceremony evening at the five star hotel, Jury's Hotel, Ballsbridge, in central Dublin (the conference hotel), which will be remembered long after the event is over. We will provide more information as it becomes available to anyone who is interested. Email us at mail@jenkinsslate.com, call 814-786-9085, or drop a line to Slate Roof Central Roofing Services, PO Box 607, Grove City, PA 16127, or for delegate information, simply email stephan.murtagh@expo-events.com or info@expo-events.com (Expo Exhibitions Limited, 8/9 Sandyford Office Park, Dublin 18, Ireland; Tel: 00353-1-295-8181/2; Fax: 00353-1-295-8187).

PS: I will be going to the IFD Conference again this year (in Dublin) and plan to travel throughout Europe afterward to take photos of roofs and collect information about slate roof methodologies for the next edition of the Slate Roof Bible. I am interested in connecting with European roofers who can assist me in finding interesting things to photograph. Please email me if you are one of those people!

Note: IFD stands for International Federation of Dachdeckers. A "dachdecker" is a "roof maker" in German.
