Colorado Auctioneers Compete for the Title of “State Champion”

A Fun-Filled Weekend with the Best Auctioneers in Colorado

This weekend, starting Friday January 8, 2010, the Colorado Auctioneers Association (CAA) will hold its annual conference at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and Conference Center, at I-70 and Chambers in Denver. The conference includes two auctions that are open to the public, including the Friday night sale featuring the State Auctioneer Championship Co

As many as 30 auctioneers from across the state will compete for the State Champion title, which not only provides bragging rights, but allows the winning auctioneer to represent the CAA in the National Auctioneer Association championship. Each auctioneer will sell a few items in an auction that is open to the public. Several auctioneers from Schur Success Auction Services are scheduled to compete. The top five finalists will participate in an interview process as well as having additional items to sell. A panel of auction professionals will rank the contestants, and ultimately crown the Champion.

This is a fun time, and there's no fee to participate. It's free and open to the public. Proceeds from the sale are used to offset convention costs, support a scholarship fund, and usually a charity designated by the Board of Directors.

On Saturday night, there is a "fun" auction, in which almost all the auctioneers will participate to sell and item or two. New auctioneers will compete for the title of 1st Time Bid Calling Champion (which by the way, Rich won in 2006). The fun auction is just that, a fun-filled night with great auctioneers. Again, the public is welcome.

This is truly an opportunity to see the best in the business and have a great time in the process. Need more information? Go to www.coauctioneers.org

See you there!
