Emilio Dibra, along with his always reliable friend and tender, Charlie Cheatham, has been taking part in the SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500 for the past six years. The 2021 World Championship marks the fourth time the masonry duo has won their regional event and qualified for Vegas. Dibra says that every time he goes to one of the regional competitions, it is a great experience. He goes on to state that the people who put on the events are nice, they treat him and his tender right, and that the competition is awesome.
“We came close one year to winning it all, so this year is hopefully our year,” says Dibra. By practicing once a week, Dibra and Cheatham hope to hit their goal of laying 720 bricks in an hour, without any deductions.
When asked how he feels about winning the TOP CRAFTSMAN award at the regional competition he says, “The craftsman award is something that you have to enjoy and be proud of it because that is what the judges are looking for.”
