Peter Gehres wins 2010 Michigan Auctioneer Champion
Peter Gehres (assistant manager for The Super Auction) was named the 2010 Michigan Auctioneer Champion (MAC) on January 27, 2010 at the Michigan State Auctioneers Association Winter Convention in Kalamazoo. A field of twenty-two auctioneers entered from three states. Six of the twenty-two contestants made the finals and after a successful Fun Auction, that raised thousands, the Auctioneer and Ringman Champions were announced. The judges for the 2010 MAC included Leroy Van Dyke (pictured), B. Mark Rogers, John Hamilton, Ed King and Joyce Braun. This was the fourth MAC Peter had entered and the ninth auctioneer calling contest entered since 2006. Peter won the 2006 Ohio Junior Bid Calling contest in January 2006.
