Annoucing the 2015 Kansas Auctioneer Champion

September 16th at the Bretz Law Arena on the Kansas State Fair grounds, finals for the title of 2015 Kansas Auctioneer Champion were held.

The distinguished judges who had the honor of adjudicating the fierce competition were Jason Winter, owner of West Central Auction Company in Harrisonville, Missouri; Regina Andrijeski, Co-Owner of Old West Realty & Auction in Curtis, Nebraka; and Troy Lippard, President of Lippard Auction in Enid, Oklahoma. They scored the contestants on presentation, chant/voice and effective auctioneering from the selling of three items. Scoring was also conducted on an interview with two questions being posed.

The field was narrowed down from eighteen at the KAA Winter Convention in January at the Drury Plaza Hotel in Wichita to top ten who competed in the finals:  Justin Ball of Chandler, OK; Justin Banzhaf of Cambridge, NE, Michael Burkhart of Greensburg, KS; Ross Daniels of Homboldt, KS; Shaun Elmore of Hoisington, KS; Jeff Garber of Lincoln, MO; Lenny Mullin of Shawnee, KS; Yve Rojas of Kansas City, MO; Donnie Stumpff of Cassville, MO; and Titus Yutzy of Hutchinson, KS.
