You have conducted the auction at the Caulfield Cup Calcutta in an exemplary fashion for many years. You extract a pool of approx. $40,000 with very entertaining remarks and accurate auctioneering. In the opinion of most people at the Calcutta you are the finest auctioneer we have ever heard and there are many real estate and country people who attend the auction.

Thursday, 4 October 2012
Adelaide has hosted the 2012 Australasian Auctioneer’s Competition. 15 competitors have competed for the title from all states and territories and New Zealand with the exception ofNSW.
The field has been narrowed to 5 with some missing the cut due due to the harsh penalties for going over the time limit. The most notable to miss out was Jason Andrew from QLD, the 2010 winner, Jason went some 2 minutes over time. The finalists, two from New Zealand Andrew North (last years runner up) and Daniel Coulson, one each from SA Michael Fenn, QLD Ben Brady and WA Rob Mason. Well done to Rob Mason from WA, it is the first time WA has had a finalist.
Jeremy Tyrrell from Vic who gave a very solid performance at his first at the event but alas his time overrun put him out of contention.
Congratulations to all the contestants it is a great effort to get to the competition and win lose or draw they will be better where it counts, on the street! Good luck to those in the final which will be held at 1.30 today cst. Odds are with last years runner up Andrew North to go one better this year and claim the title.The winner will be announced tonight at the event dinner.
