Screening on Saturday 22nd July 2017

review of Annual General Meeting and Elections

The AGM was successfully held last week, Saturday Juy 15, though we had to wait until enough people turned up to meet the necessary minimum numbers. Thanks to everyone who attended.
Two points of note:

  1. The AGM authorised entry fees to increase 50 cents, starting this week.
  2. The AGM authorised that some anime-like animation from other parts of East Asia be allowed into the program. We are looking into some possibilities from China.

Then we had the Election for the Committee, and of the 9 nominees we elected the following 8 people:

  • Glenn Clifford
  • Katie Clune
  • Paul Clune
  • Drew Edgar
  • David Fisher
  • Greg McLeod
  • Mark McMullan
  • Dale Verdi

Many thanks to Linda Rush for standing.

The new committee will allocate who gets which committee position at the next regular committee meeting at the beginning of August, giving the recently elected time to see how everything currently happens.
We would prefer that there be no betting upon how difficult/exciting the committee position assigning will be.


Below is the program for the evening of Saturday July 22nd, 2017.

Like last week, we will have two previews as possibilities for replacement regular series,expanding your knowledge of Japanese anime. We hope you appreciate this week’s screening of the first episode of “Made in Abyss” and “Grimoire of Zero”.
Mean while we apologise the last week’s AGM running late caused us to delay screening of “Bernard Jou Iwaku” a week.
Our retro series “Read or Die” finishes tonight, and for next week there will be the anime based off of the manga by Kenichi Sonoda, that was last screened at JAFWA in April 1997.
