The Columbia Breakfast Rotary hosted their annual Mule Day Auctioneers Championship April 4 and 5, 2019. 2019 saw for the first time a preliminary round, which was held at the Columbia American Legion Post 19. The final and Championship rounds on were held April 5 at the Tennessee Livestock Producers Sale Barn in Columbia, which has become the home of the MDAC. Twenty-nine outstanding auctioneers from eight states took their turns on the auction block to see if they had what it took to claim the 2019 Championship. After the preliminary round the top twenty auctioneers went to the final and Championship rounds on Friday. Judges for the 2019 Championship were Trey Morris (2014 Champion), Doug Wilson, Scott Stuart and David Whitaker (2015 Champion). The Championship is a real live auction with each auctioneer bringing their own unique auction chant getting top dollar from the bidders. The 2018 Champion, Jeff Bynum came back to sell several items including the Charlie Daniel’s Fiddle and a 2019 MDAC cap for $500.00.
The Championship round had Kail Tucker, Tennessee, Brent Croom, Tennessee, Shane Mc Carrell, Tennessee, Woody Woodruff, Tennessee and Chuck Bradley, Alabama. Chuck Bradley, Kellyton, Ala. was named 2019 Grand Champion and Woody Woodruff, Shelbyville, Tn was named 2019 Reserve Champion.
The MDAC funds the Columbia Breakfast Rotary’s college scholarship program. The club awards five scholarships to Maury County students each year as well as one recurring scholarship.
The 2020 MDAC will be held April 2 and 3, 2020. The Columbia Breakfast Rotary will again in 2020 partner with the Columbia American Legion Post 19 benefitting the Legion and veterans of Maury County. The preliminary round will be held April 2 at the American Legion and the final and championship rounds will be held April 3 at the Tennessee Livestock Producers sale barn.
