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.

Phil and I have trained together over the past 6 years, at times intensely and others just the odd catch up to freshen up my skills. Either way, I always gain something from our sessions together.

Novice Auctioneers…. Well done!
Tuesday, 4 September 2012
A total of seven contestants competed at the Victorian Novice Auctioneers Championship at REIV headquarters in Camberwell today.
Michael Kelly from Nelson Alexander, Charlie Atkin, Michael Bolton, Eric Brown and Martin Frengoese all from Hocking Stuart, Stasi from Philip Webb and Byron Kerr from Buxton performed very well. I don’t envy the judges because the standard was exceptionally high. The winner is announced at the REIV annual awards night of nights at Crown in October.
