Grand Rapids, Mich. – Otis Nelson of Modern Roofing & Siding in Ashland, Maine, is the Grand Prize winner at National Nail’s CAMO Screw Off! held at theNortheastern Retail Lumber Association (NRLA) LBM Expo in Providence, Rhode Island on Feb. 14. Representing his dealer SW Collins in Presque Isle, where he first qualified, Nelson beat out 28 other competitors in the deck fastening event to win a 2017 Harley-Davidson motorcycle. There were 42 contractors who qualified from local lumberyard events this past spring and summer.
“The CAMO Screw Off was an exciting event, starting at my lumber dealer SW Collins all the way to finals here in Rhode Island,” said Nelson. “It was a great way to learn more about CAMO’s deck fastening products. I can’t wait to take a cruise on the new bike!”
During the event, finalists faced off in a series of speed competitions with the winner moving onto the next round. The “Elite 8” then battled down to two finalists with Nelson taking first place with a winning time of 41.5 seconds. The other finalists were awarded cash prizes:
2nd place — David Orgain, Birdseye Building Co., Burlington, Vt. representing his dealer Richmond Home Supply in Richmond, Vt. ($1,500 award winner)

4th place —Nathan Demers of Perkins Quality Construction in Middleboro, Mass. representing Mahoney’s Building Supply in Mattapoisett, Mass. ($500 award winner)
“We couldn’t have planned a more successful event,” said W. Scott Baker, CEO, National Nail. “The competition was intense–everyone came to win, with many of the contractors practicing for months. We congratulate Otis Nelson who gets to drive home a new Harley-Davidson motorcycle.”
Designed by National Nail to provide hands-on experience with its CAMO Deck Edge Fastening system, the CAMO Screw Off was hosted by CAMO stocking dealers this past summer and fall in a series of deck fastening speed contests.
