Screening on Saturday 25th July 2020

Thankyou for all who attended JAFWA’s Annual General Meeting last week. I hope you are all happy with how your committee performed during the last year.
However, due to lack of nominations, there was insufficient to hold an election and your current committee are back by default. It would please me much if you would now tremble in fear.
To enforce the trembling in Fear, there is the new regular series “Isekai Quartet” season 2.

The JAFWA screenings continue, though we once again had a last minute change with the program. We realised that we needed to put in a preview item last week, so that it could make it onto the survey for this week. Yes! our monthly survey is back, and can our monthly member’s draw be far behind?
And tonight, before the Dinner Break and survey, we will sneak in one more preview episode of a series we supsect that our dear JAFWAites might appreciate. After Dinner we have the last episode of “Mob Psycho 100”.

Arte Isekai Quartet 2

We continue 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.
