Branson Collector Car Auction

Hollister, MO   65672

Branson, MO — On October 16 and 17, 2015, approximately 6,500 car collectors and enthusiasts will be gathering again for the Fall series of the 37th Annual Branson Auction at the Branson Convention Center. More than 250 cars of all vintages, makes and models are already drawing the attention of collectors and spectators in six surrounding states via Branson Auction’s social networks, many of whom publicly attribute the event’s quality and continuous success to its founders Jim and Kathy Cox.

The 2014 recipient of the prestigious Lee Iacocca Award for his “dedication to excellence in perpetuating an American automotive tradition” at Keeneland Concours d’Elegance, Jim Cox is world-renowned for his acute knowledge and expertise in the manufacturing, mechanics, performance, restoration, and valuation of autos dating back to their origin, including everything from American- and European-made to elite imports and celebrity rides. In fact, owners have proclaimed Cox’s ability to circle the wagons, so to speak, to get a car in shape for prime time at showcases when there was no other hope.

A well-respected spokesperson and authority on the most complex engine mechanics, Cox sponsors the Keeneland Concours d’Elegance in Lexington, Kentucky, and is a frequent presenter at various collector showcases, races and media productions on topics like “Inside the Engine of a Rolls Royce” and “Interview with a Hudson”. Cox sponsors and presents the annual Gatsby Award for his Alma Mater Kansas City Art Institute’s “Art of the Car” scholarship, for which he was also a previous recipient of the Alumni Award.

“I love doing this because I love the memories these cars hold and their history — not just the history of the cars but of the people that come with them,” says Jim Cox. “This auction is particularly special in terms of history because some of them come with unique documented memories. One is a 1959 Buick Electra 225 convertible that was featured in the movie These Old Broads where it was driven by Peter Graves, and carried Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds, Shirley MacLaine and Joan Collins, and that autographed movie memorabilia comes with the car.”

With annual sales of $6.5 million to $7.5 million, The Branson Auction historically attracts 6,500-7,000 collectors, consignors, bidders and car enthusiasts to Southwest Missouri twice a year for auto auctions that are praised in many collector car circles coast-to-coast. More than 250 must-have sports, muscle, vintage, classic, custom and antique automobiles make their appearance and are bid on by enthusiasts, collectors, and gearheads from around the world.

The 37th Bi-Annual Branson Auction will be held at the Branson Convention Center in downtown Branson, MO, and consignments are now being accepted. Beginning at 12:00 noon on Friday October 16th and 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 17th, the event is open to the public at a price of $10 or $15 for a 2-day pass. Tickets are on sale at the venue at 10:00 am on Friday and 8:00 am on Saturday. The consignment list is available for preview at www.BransonAuction.com and is updated regularly between now and the October event along with historical auction results.

Car owners can consign up to the day of the sale or in advance by calling 800-335-3063, or by visiting www.BransonAuction.com and clicking the “Consign” tab. Friday consignors pay a $500 entry fee and zero commission with high bids paying 100% to the seller. Saturday consignors pay a $300-$500 entry fee and 8% commission with reserve or 6% with no reserve. All bidders pay a registration fee of $100 which is refunded with the purchase of a vehicle.

This event is sponsored by Summer Winds Resort, Passport Transport, JJ Best Banc, Branson Airport, and the Hilton Downtown Branson, and hosted by Jim and Kathy Cox of Branson Collector Car Auction in Branson, MO.

National champions from multiple major youth baseball organizations will be coming to Branson this summer to compete in a tournament of champions. The 2015 12U Champions from AABC, AAU, CABA, Dizzy Dean and NABF will be competing in the Youth Baseball Network (YBN) National Championship. The tournament will be held August 19-22.

The inaugural YBN Championship will be played at the Branson RecPlex, with future Championships played annually at the new Ballparks of America in Branson.

In addition to the participating champions, a host Branson-area All-Star team will round-out the six team tournament. Youth Baseball Network is planning for additional major youth baseball organizations to join the YBN Championship in 2016.

Youth Baseball Network, a marketing and online media company, developed its YBN National Championship by partnering with many of the largest youth baseball organizations in America. This invitational tournament promises to become the preeminent national youth baseball championship in the country.

“We’re excited to have Branson as the host city of our very prestigious National Championship,” stated Gil Vieira, Founder and CEO of Youth Baseball Network. “Between the City of Branson, Branson CVB, Branson Tourism Center and Ballparks of America, we’ve been able to build partnerships that will help develop Branson into the new ‘capital’ of youth baseball.”

“We are delighted to welcome these teams from across the nation, and their families, to the inaugural YBN National Championship,” said Jeff Seifried, President/CEO, Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce and Convention & Visitors Bureau. “We look forward to hosting the National Championship for many years to come.”

Branson Landing Hosts Special Opening Ceremony

The YBN Championship begins Wednesday morning, August 19, at 9:00 AM. A special Opening Ceremony will take place that day at 6:30 PM at Branson Landing. The ceremony will feature Missouri State University Head Baseball Coach Keith Guttin as Guest Speaker. Coach Guttin, a member of the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame, was recently named the 2015 Missouri Valley Conference Coach of the Year – an award he has won five times. Coach Guttin will host a question and answer segment and discuss his experiences in baseball.

Additional entertainment at the ceremony will be provided by Branson’s popular ‘Buckets N Boards.’ Matt Levingston and Gareth Sever have crafted a hilarious and high-energy show chock-full of precise percussion, ridiculous songs, spectacular tap dancing, inventive instrumentation and unique musical talent.

The teams will arrive at the Landing via Branson’s famous amphibious craft that resemble the WWII DUKW, courtesy of Ride The Ducks.

Games continue at the RecPlex Thursday and Friday afternoon, with the YBN Championship Finals scheduled for Saturday at 3:00 PM. The Finals will be preceded by a Home Run Derby contest at 1:30 PM.

The full YBN Championship schedule can be seen at www.youthbaseballnetwork.com.

Decorated Vietnam War Veteran Oliver North to speak at dedication of The Missouri Vietnam Veterans Memorial

1,410 servicemen and women from the state of Missouri gave their lives during the Vietnam War. The fallen will be honored through an official Missouri memorial on the campus of College of the Ozarks in Point Lookout, Missouri.

The dedication of the memorial will take place at the College on Wednesday, April 22, 2015, at 2:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend.

The purpose of the memorial is to honor the fallen and properly thank Vietnam War Veterans for their sacrifice and bravery. The memorial is being constructed by staff and students and will stand near the College’s entrance.

“We are honored to build this memorial on our campus,” said College of the Ozarks President Jerry C. Davis. “The fallen and their families, along with the Vietnam Veterans, deserve a proper thank you. We hope family members and those in communities across the state will join us for this sacred occasion.”

Dedication ceremony

The speaker for the ceremony is former U.S. Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North. A decorated Vietnam War Veteran, North serves as host of the FOX News Channel documentary series “War Stories with Oliver North.” He is not only a combat-decorated Marine, but he is a #1 best-selling author, inventor, business owner and syndicated columnist. North has previously served as a convocation speaker at the College of the Ozarks.

The ceremony will begin with The Call of Remembrance, the music of a single bagpiper playing “Amazing Grace.” Walls containing the names of the fallen will be unveiled and wreaths placed on them by dignitaries. A 21-gun salute will further honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Alumnus and Vietnam Veteran General Terrence R. Dake will address those gathered.

“Kindergartners from the S. Truett Cathy Lower School will place roses in front of the statue of Vietnam Veterans to commemorate the living,” said Dean of Character Education Sue Head. “We want our younger students to understand the service and sacrifice of those who went to Vietnam.”

Additional special observances, musical numbers from the College’s choir, and opportunities for prayer and reflection are planned as part of the service.

At the end of the ceremony, family members of the fallen, and others wishing to show their respect, will place single roses at the base of the walls. The roses will be provided for those in attendance.

A reception for all those in attendance will be held immediately upon completion of the dedication ceremony at The Keeter Center on the College of the Ozarks campus.

Honoring the fallen

Names of the fallen Missouri servicemen and women are provided via the following link to the U.S. Military Fatal Casualties of the Vietnam War, available through the National Archives and prepared by the Secretary of Defense: http://www.archives.gov/research/military/vietnam-war/casualty-lists/mo-alpha.pdf
Families of the fallen are urged to call the College at (417) 690-2212 to share their information. They will be recognized with special observances during the ceremony.

These names will be carved into slabs of granite, immortalized on a divided wall which is the focal point of the memorial. The division of the wall represents the divide that separated the country during this conflict.

In between the two walls will stand a statue of Vietnam Veterans, representing those who served in Vietnam and returned home to live the rest of their lives with memories of war. A flower bed in the shape of the letter “V” for valor will display red flowers, representing the blood shed by servicemen and women.

The memorial was designed by Austin Meyer, a 2014 College of the Ozarks graduate.

More about Oliver North

Former U.S. Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North was born in San Antonio, Texas, graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, and served 22 years as a Marine officer. During the Vietnam War, he led a counter-insurgency Marines platoon. His awards for service in combat include the Silver Star, the Bronze Star for valor, and two Purple Hearts for wounds in combat.

Assigned to the National Security Council staff in the Reagan Administration, North was involved in planning the rescue of 804 medical students on the island of Grenada and played a major role in the capture of the hijackers of the cruise ship Achille Lauro. After helping plan the U.S. raid on Muammar Qaddafi’s terror bases in Libya, North was targeted for
assassination by Abu Nidal, the infamous terrorist killed in Baghdad in August, 2002.

President Ronald Reagan described North as “an American hero.”

Since 2001, he has been the host of “War Stories” — the award-winning military documentary series on Fox News Channel — and has been embedded with more than 55 U.S. and allied combat units. North has authored thirteen books, all of them New York Times best sellers. His latest, Heroes Proved, is a gripping tale of intrigue and duplicity at the highest levels of the U.S. Government.

In addition to his work on FOX News Channel, North also serves as the honorary chairman of Freedom Alliance, the conservative public policy organization he founded in 1990. Freedom Alliance provides tuition assistance to dependents of troops killed or permanently disabled in the line of duty. Freedom Alliance also provides support to members of the armed forces who have been wounded in the line of duty, those currently serving on the front lines, and their families.
