Screening of 2020 on Saturday 18th January 2020

This is official notification that JAFWA is plaaning to have a Special General Meeting of its signed up members during the Dinner Break of Saturday 22nd February. As attendees may recall, the air conditioning was not sufficient at the Marathon screening in December, and we wish to consult with our members about what we do this year.

On a side note, we had an unexpected addition to the program last week, the 5 minute “Out of Sight”. We hope no one minded, but I thought it was a nice contrast to the super sensory ESP of the dhow before hand.
We thank Greg for finding this little gem. Does anyone else have any cute short items we can play?

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

JAFWA has the hall from about 1PM to 4:30PM, where it is make our own amusement time.

Does anybody have their own game machine and games they want their fellow JAFWAites to play? JAFWA will bring out the projector and screen if needed. I am not certain we have access to the outdoor area, but we will try to keep you off the street.
In the past people have brought along video games and the hardware to play them, and sewing machines for cosplay creating. What do you want to do? Just so long as it fun, legal, ethical, and we don’t scuff the floor of the Hall. And a personal note from the MC, he wishes you to believe that he is allergic to nerf bullets.
