Katanning Hamfeast – 28 January 2015

Katanning Hamfeast Report

The Katanning Ham Feast was held on Wednesday 28 January 2015 at Oscar’s Café in Katanning.

I think I counted 23 or 24 sitting down for lunch, with people travelling in from Manjimup, Boyup Brook, Busselton, Yallingup, Bunbury, Denmark, Albany, Mt Barker, Broomehill, Mandurah and Perth for the day to join fellow hams in Katanning.

The meals were tasty & enjoyable and some even dined on dessert afterwards. The conversation was lively and topped off with refreshing drinks (as it was warm outside :).

A great time was had by all, so a big thank you to everyone who travelled to Katanning as you all made the day fantastic.

Thanks also to the staff at Oscar’s Café at the Royal Exchange Hotel for looking after everyone and keeping us fed & watered.

If you enjoyed the day or couldn’t make it this time, the next Ham Feast will be held in Manjimup around July 2015. (Exact date TBA). I might also try and arrange something in Albany or Denmark in between.

I have attached the group photo taken by Duncan VK6GHZ. Thanks to Duncan!

Duncan has also sent me a high res photo (approx 10MB size) if you would like a copy of that sent to you, please let me know and I will e-mail it across.

Thanks once again everyone and look forward to seeing you at the Manjimup Ham Feast!
