2022 Manjimup Ham Feast

October 19th, 2022 by vk6ld

Southern Electronics Group (SEG) is pleased to announce the long awaited, next Manjimup Hamfeast is scheduled for Monday 21 November 2022.

For those who haven’t been before, the Manjimup Hamfeast is a pub lunch for 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.

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 menu to this email and it will also be on the SEG website. 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 15 November 2022 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 21 November 2022.

2021 Manjimup Ham Feast Report

December 17th, 2021 by vk6ld

We had 45 attendees enjoying refreshments and a hearty lunch at the Quinninup Tavern on Monday 15 November 2021. We had travellers from Mt Barker, Porongurup, Broomehill, Manjimup, Boyup Brook, Margaret River, Yallingup, Collie, Binningup, Dwellingup, Mandurah, Perth Metro Perth Hills and even Kalgoorlie come to Ham Feast. Great to see a few first-timers to Ham Feast and our returning regulars. I think the location is just great, overlooking the karri forest from the bar, dining room and outside deck.

A big thanks as well goes to the tavern owner, Dale Atkins and her team of kitchen & bar staff for looking after us!

The legendary Ham Feast Raffle was held and the prize winners were:

1st prize (Comet GP-3, dual band 2m/70cm antenna, valued at $199): Mike VK6MN

Other prize winners were Phil VK6TEK (Bushcomm balun), David VK6FAAZ (Cable tie combo pack), Stuart VK6STU (Self-amalgamating tape), Andrew VK6ONE (Digital multimeter) and Warren (VK6VET) pliers/side cutters.

Raffle ticket sales and new memberships raised $545.00 for the kitty.

Thanks to everyone who travelled to Quinninup and made it another great event. The next Ham Feast at Katanning will take place around April 2022, so hope to see you there!

Thanks again to all.
