A big thank you to Phil for putting on a well run competition (Fletchers inaugural Auctioneer Comp) last night. Not an easy feat scripting bidding and making sure all run smoothly!

An auction at a fund raising dinner can be just an auction or it can also be part of the entertainment! You succeed in making it both an auction that brings in the money and entertaining at the same time, both for those who were bidding so spiritedly and also for the rest of the audience.

Auction of Real Estate turns 180 years old
Thursday, 1 June 2017
180 years ago, the first land in Victoria was sold by public auction on June 1, 1837. Originally known as Port Phillip, 100 lots of land were sold in what is now known as the Melbourne CBD. The gross sale was £3,800 and the average sale price of a block was £35. Only one lot reneged (or cooled off) and the commission for the Auctioneer, Robert Hoddle, was £57 or 1.50% to read more on Hoddle go to: http://adb.anu.edu.au/biography/hoddlerobert-2190
