Kelly takes the title: 2011 Oregon Grand Champion Auctioneer!
After 5 years of competition in the Oregon Grand Champion Auctioneer Contest, Kelly finally takes the title in 2011.
It was a great Convention in Eugene, Oregon this year. We were able to have some wonderful speakers join us and educate us on the latest and greatest in the auction profession. I am so excited to implement some new ideas for the Benefit Auctions I conduct. I especially enjoyed the sessions on Raffles & the OLCC! You have questions, I have answers…well, now I do.
I was delighted to compete against some of Oregon’s finest Auctioneers in the OGCA Contest. Taking Reserve Champion is Tim Stuart of Stuart Realty Group, Inc, and in Third is JB Dimick of J&C Auction Co.
Both Tim & JB were amazing, talented auctioneers and gave me a run for my money! As the current champion, I will look forward to promoting the auction method of marketing and, perhaps, I may compete at the National Auctioneers Association’s International Auctioneering Championship in July. I also have my sights set on the Northwest Championship in Washington State.
Thanks to all for your support! I’m looking forward to another great auction season!
