The Great Wamboin Curry Night

At the Wamboin Community Hall. Please arrive around 7.00 pm, for dinner from 7.30 pm.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to overwhelming interest in recent years, bookings are essential. Space is strictly limited (unless you're happy to sit outside...), so book early to avoid disappointment!

The Curry Night will follow the very successful format set in place many years ago by Dave Hubbard. There is a gold coin donation requested to offset the hire of the Hall, tables and chairs.

All diners bring along a prepared (curry) dish to share with the assembled masses. The dishes are displayed with descriptive labels, including the dish name and its heat intensity (mild, medium, hot), and are then on offer to all curry munchers from 7.30pm.

BYO suitable beverage to wash it down, as well as your own side dishes, nibbles, plates and cutlery.

Prizes will be awarded to the 3 best dishes selected by a secret (no bribes) judge.

For bookings or more information, contact Dave Hubbard on 6238 3308 or at dave.hubbard@bigpond.com.
