Nevada Day will host the 48th Annual World Championship Single Jack Rock Drilling Competition

The 48th Annual World Championship Single Jack Drilling Contest takes place on Saturday October 29th starting at 9:00 A.M. in the Carson Mall parking lot at 1313 S. Carson Street. Contestants use 4 1/2 pound hammers and a 3/4″ bit of steel to drill as deep and fast as they can in a 4,320 pound piece of Sierra White Granite. They have 10 minutes to drill and their only help is from an assistant who runs water into the hole to clear out loose stone chips. The deepest hole wins.
