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.

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.

Being the 1st bidder is a good thing!
Saturday, 21 September 2019
From the 8 auctions I viewed today from Collingwood down to Beaumaris, 5 sold under the hammer, 1 passed into the highest bidder and the other two passed in with no bid. 5 out of the 8 were either sold or passed into the first bidder. As I have been saying for many years being the first bidder is a very good strategy if you want to buy!
