Manjimup Ham Feast Report

Hi to all,

Many thanks to everyone who came along to the 2016 Manjimup Ham Feast at the Quinninup Tavern on Tuesday.

There was a great turnout for the day with 45 attendees enjoying the day and it was fantastic to see so many people joining us.  Amateurs and partners came from Albany, Katanning, Mandurah, Perth and all destinations in between – plus Manjimup (Thanks to Max for pointing this out! 🙂

The day was enjoyed by everyone, with plenty of social and technical conversations taking place, theAllStar ‘Show and Tell’ demonstration in the corner by Mal VK6MT, helped along by a good variety of food and refreshments.

The day went very quickly and before I knew it, the time had gone past 4.00pm.

First ticket drawn in the Ham Feast raffle went to Bevan VK6BL, who demanded a redraw take place and the dual band handheld prize went to Lee VK6TY, continuing his lucky streak after also winning a raffle prize at the Katanning Ham Feast back in January 2016.  Second prize was another dual band handheld and won by Stuart VK6BG. Third prize was a Jaycar gift voucher won by Lance VK6LR (another frequent raffle winner) and fourth prize was a Bunnings gift voucher won by Mal VK6MT.

A big thank you as well to Nigel VK6NI who brought along some surplus electronic equipment donated to SEG by a Denmark resident.  Nigel ran an impromptu fundraising auction for this equipment that attracted some very keen bidding.  I reckon we might see a cameo role for Nigel in the next series of Storage Wars on TV with his auction skills.

Chris VK6JI has uploaded his photos from the day to his website ( If anybody else has some photos they would like to share, please feel free to post them to the SEG Mailing List or I can upload to the SEG website.

Thanks once again to all who made it a great day and you all enjoyed the day as much as I did.  Look forward to seeing everyone again at Katanning in 2017. (Late January)



2016 Manjimup Ham Feast

The time of year for the Manjimup Hamfeast has come around and will be held on Tuesday 27 September 2016.

Start time is 12.00pm.

For those who haven’t been before, the Manjimup Hamfeast is similar to the Katanning Hamfeast and is a lunch 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.

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 choices to help the chef to have sufficient supplies on hand and prepare & deliver the meals in a timely manner. Meals can be selected on the day, but there are no guarantees! 🙂  I can recommend the Battered Mushrooms & Fried Camembert for entrees.

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 and our name badge producer.

Please have your orders back to me by 8.00am, Monday 19 September 2016 at the latest.

Thanks all and look forward to hearing from you soon and seeing you at Quinninup on 27 September 2016.
