Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 16th July, 2016

AGM and Election

This is it!
JAFWA’s Annual General Meeting, where you, the beloved signed up member get to hear the committee’s reports on what they have been up to in the last year. Then you get to ask pointed questions.

We will start setting up the Hall at 2:30PM, for a 3PM start to the AGM.
There will be some business to attend to, as the recent change to the Associations Act means we are required to add a Dispute clause to the JAFWA constitution.

Then during the Dinner Break we will have the committee Election, and we now have enough nominees that actual voting is required this year!


Below is the program for July 16th, 2016.

Hopefully our AGM will have been more interesting than the run-up to the Federal election, and the candidates for the committee election will be less hated. Though your MC is standing for re-election, so who knows.

To try and counter the Winter chill (don’t forget to bring enough warm clothing) and make us forget the inclement weather we will continue the 5 minute show set at a hot spring. Also to remind us of Summer (which is the current Japanese season) is a preview episode of a new series from Japan that should remind us of the joy of swimming in the ocean.
And because the genre of computer gamer trapped in a virtual reality game has not yet grown old, we have the 3rd episode of “Overlord” after the Late Break – we feel liking skipping over the episode where the protagonist gets trapped in the game world, and instead visit the episode where he steps forth to see what the game world is like.

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