Last week saw the LVD World Auctioneering Championships held in Queenstown. The competition gives auctioneers a platform to enhance and hone their skills in auctioneering, and to celebrate their prowess in the field. EVES had fantastic representation with three competitors - Louis McDonald (EVES Whangarei) and Isaac Jakobs (EVES Gate Pa) both competed in the novice section and Jordan Sievwright (EVES Papamoa) in the senior section.

Louis MacDonald won his pool, qualifying for the final, and Isaac came runner up in his pool, also qualifying for the final. Jordan captured the judges’ attention in his senior heat against some experienced competitors and was right off the cusp of a finals spot. All three competitors did an awesome job in representing the company, and we look forward to the REINZ National Auctioneering Championships which are due to run in Auckland next month.
