Auctioneer Forres Meadows Wins 2017 Texas Auctioneers Association Senior Championship Auctioneer Contest in Frisco, Texas!!!!

What a week at the Texas Auctioneers Association Convention held in Frisco, Texas. This was my 28th consecutive TAA Convention. It was also my last meeting as President of the Hall of Fame, what a great year we had. (2013 Inductee Texas Auctioneers Association Hall of Fame)

I competed for the title of Senior Champion Auctioneer in our TAA Championship Auctioneer Contest. I had a good run on my two items I sold.

I'm honored to have won the contest and will proudly represent our association and auction industry with the title of the 2017 Texas Auctioneers Association Senior Champion Auctioneer!
I want to thank #Bose for providing the #BoseF1 systems for the contest, you made all of us sound our best! #SoundbyBoseProfessional #BoseF1 #BoseL1 #BoseProfessional #ClubB #ShapeYourSound #TAAPro #TexasBid #TAAHoF #AuctionsWork #BenefitAuctioneer #FundraisingAuctionEvents #FundraiserTx #TAASeniorChampion2017 #GodBlessTexas
