Manjimup Hamfeast – 16 November 2020

October 19th, 2020 by vk6ld

Hi All,

Southern Electronics Group (SEG) is pleased to announce the long awaited, next Manjimup Hamfeast is scheduled for Monday 16 November 2020.

For those who haven’t been before, the Manjimup Hamfeast is a pub lunch for all amateur radio enthusiasts held at the friendly Quinninup Tavern, a small former mill town approximately 30kms south of Manjimup.

The food is great, drinks are cold and the company is excellent!  YL’s, XYL’s & partners are also very welcome.

Start time is 11.00am.

The Quinninup Tavern is located at 1222 Wheatley Coast Road, Quinninup and can be accessed via South West Highway or Muir Highway. Google Maps Link:

The legendary Hamfeast Raffle will also be held on the day, with some great prizes to be won.

For those coming from Albany, Mt Barker, Katanning, Perth or most other places, Manjimup/Quinninup can be reached in 2-3 hours travel time.  For those that wish to stay a bit longer, there is a caravan park at Quinninup or accommodation can also be found in nearby Manjimup, Pemberton and Northcliffe.

It is preferred if you can pre-order your meals to help the chef to have sufficient supplies on hand and to prepare & deliver the meals in a timely manner on the day.  I have attached the Quinninup Tavern menus to this email and they are also on the SEG website. (Ote Ote is unavailable and there are vegetarian options available)  Meals can be selected on the day, but there are no guarantees if not pre-ordered!

First important point:  If those attending can e-mail me with their meal choices and to confirm their attendance, so I can prepare a spreadsheet for the chef. (I can recommend the Battered Mushrooms and Fried Camembert for entrees.)  Please have your orders back to me by 8.00am, Tuesday 10 November 2020 at the latest.

Second important point:  When you arrive on the Hamfeast day, if you can attend at the bar, let the staff know your callsign & name and they will take payment for your meal/s. 

The chef is aiming to serve meals between 12.00pm and 1.00pm, but with upwards of 45 people expected, this equates to one meal cooked & served every 90 seconds, so please be patient. ?

Thanks all and look forward to hearing from you soon and seeing you at Quinninup on 16 November 2020.
