Screening on Saturday 20th June 2020

The JAFWA screenings continue, after a successfuly resumption last Saturday.
Well, apart from the cooking issues for the free sausage in a bun. We think we have worked out the issues with the applied heat devices, and should have our regretably delayed welcome-back sausage-in-a-bun celebration this week.

As per last week we will be taking precautions to limit the possible second wave of Corona, and we ask that you co-operate and even help where possible with our efforts to keep you safe – some social distancing, extra cleaning with antiseptic, library under limited access, etc. Also, we must ask that anyone unfortunate enough to be infected to not attend JAFWA until they are contagion free.
Help would be welcome during set-up and pack-up due to the extra duties imposed by COVID-19. Set Up begins ~4:45pm, while the Screening should begin at 5:15pm, or later should the set-up not yet be complete. Please arrive early to confirm personal details due to COVID 19 regulations.

Though the JAFWA schedule may have been thrown askew over the last couple of months, we are endeavouring to return to normality (if anyone can actually define what “normal” is). As such, we are going to have a couple of preview items this week, as possible candidates for when some of our regular series come to an end. We hope you understand that these two items are not quite as recent as when we originally decided to preview them.

Darwin's Game

It has been confirmed that JAFWA’s AGM and annual elections are coming up. Once again we cry forth the offical announcement of the upcoming AGM and election, to be held on July 18th.
