2016 South Dakota Auctioneers
A letter from the SDAA President
Hello from the middle of the state of South Dakota.
First I would like to thank Randy & Chris Owen for putting on a great convention. Congratulations to Terry Haiar and Marlin Fjelland on being Conducted into the South Dakota Auctioneers Hall of Fame a well deserving honor. Congratulation to Randy Owen on winning the People’s Choice award at the fun auction.
Thanks to our instructors for putting in their time getting us educated and last but not least Thank you to everyone who attended. There is a lot of work putting on this event and very much appreciated for those who come to share in this event. SDAA Ben Meyer, Dawn & I travel to the National Conference in Grand Rapid, MI and had the pleasure of watching SDAA member Ben Meyer complete in the IAC and doing very well. Enjoyed visiting with people from all over. Thanks to SDAA Ron Bradeen & Lindi and SDAA Chuck, Val and Jared Sutton for showing us around.
Also strolled thru the trade show. As everyone knows I will be having my convention in Spearfish SD as our small town doesn’t have the room. We have gotten some much needed rain in central South Dakota and the auction sales have been busy this month. I hope to see all of you at the South Dakota State Fair bid calling Contest on September 4, 2016. We are making some final plans for 2017 convention and hope you can all make it.
