Mississippi auctioneers catch bids for Batson donation

May 2, 2018

        There was a lot of fast talking going on at the Mississippi Auctioneers Association annual convention and bid calling championships held April 29 in D’Iberville. This year, about two dozen industry leaders were in attendance and auctioneers raised hundreds of dollars to be donated to Blaire E. Batson Children’s Hospital in Jackson.

            The Association raised the money during its annual convention held in D’Iberville through its Mississippi State Auctioneer Championships where contestants auctioned items donated by members. When the final gavel fell, Courtney Jo Weaver took home the top honor as the 2018 Mississippi State Champion Auctioneer, after a tie run-off with Henry Redmond who finished as Reserve Champion. Eric Rogers of Perkinston was awarded the distinction of Mississippi Rookie Auctioneer Champion. The three contestants competed for the titles with other auctioneers from around the state in front of a panel of judges scored on introduction, ability to engage the audience, use of hand gestures and body language, speed and rhythm of chant, use of eye contact, knowledge of the items to be auctioned and overall presentation.

            The annual conference is the most anticipated event of the MAA’s year, as auction professionals across the state gather together to hear world class guest speakers, network with like-minded professionals, elect officers and directors, attend and compete in the bid-calling competition and fundraiser.

MAA Past President throws first pitch at M-Braves game

September 2, 2016

William L. Head throws first pitch at M-Braves game.

William L. Head throws first pitch at M-Braves game.

MAA Past President William L. Head had the honor of throwing the first pitch at the Mississippi Braves game against the Pensacola Blue Wahoos on Friday, August 19 as the designated Pink Tie Guy for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Head was escorted onto the field by other foundation members and M-Braves officials. He greeted the crowd in his pink shirt with a wave before launching the ball towards the catcher. In attendance to cheer him on were fellow members of the Mississippi Auctioneers Association attending the event for the organization’s Summer Social.

Pink Tie Guys are partners in the Komen promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever. The Pink Tie Guys are leaders who attest to the powerful fact that breast cancer is a disease that knows no boundaries and who bring a male voice to the urgency of finding the cures. These men are not afraid to wear pink, for they know pink is a symbol of hope, courage, strength and survivorship.
