Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 18th June, 2016

Event Afternoon before JAFWA screening

JAFWA has the hall from 12:30PM to 4:30PM, where it is make our own amusement time.
For next week JAFWA will take a break as so many go to attend SupaNova. Use this as a last chance to test out your cosplay costume perhaps, to guarantee that there are no wrinkles left in your performance.

Does anybody have their own game machine and games they want their fellow JAFWAites to play? JAFWA will bring out the projector and screen.

These are just a couple of suggestion. What do you want to do? Just so long as it legal, moral, and we don’t scuff the floor.


Below is the program for June 18th, 2016.

JAFWA AGM and elections are on July 16 th!
We are taking nominations for the JAFWA committee elections. Have you been a financial member for the last 3 months, a resident of WA? Then you to can nominate yourself for the election, and aim for a share in the prestige and glory.

It must be Winter, for I feel cold. We do not yet have a replacement for “Sushi Police”. Does anyone have a reasonable suggestion?
Though all is not lost. This week we start regularly screening the last of the mid-year replacement series.

Though the JAFWA screening proves to be a good port of call in this inclement weather, do not trust that your love of exciting anime will heat your blood enough. Remember to bring enough warm clothing, as the club’s heaters struggle to keep the Hall at a comfortable temperature.

Again we would like to thank Lotteries West, who are preparing to provide us with a grant to continue our good work.
