Screening on Saturday 10th February 2018


Welcome Back! Below is the program for the evening of Saturday February 10th, 2018.

We shall be having our normal program, though you will have to wait for next week before we screen any previews.
However, this month we begin our new Members Prize scheme, where we only give a way a member’s prize at the end of the month, and you get a number of entries based on how often you attended during the month. Below we hope to show (have to cut down the image size) some examples of the prize pack that our new super-special member’s prizes will contain:

member's prize pack 1 member's prize pack 2

Unfortunately, our plans to run a booth at MadFest on the first week of March have fallen through. Time was not on our side.
However, there is still a chance to get involved with the operation of JAFWA. We are looking for some volunteers to help out at a Bunnings Sausage Sizzle on May 5th, for fundraising purposes. Does anyone wish to help cook sausages in a bun, and even < shock/horror > help serve the general public< / shock/horror >?
Please contact President Drew at the next JAFWA screening if you are interested in helping this endeavour.

With no other choice, Yoshino accepts the offer and travels to Manoyama only to find out that she was hired based on a case of mistaken identity and that her contract term is for one year instead of the one day, as she had initially thought. With nowhere else to go, Yoshino reluctantly becomes Queen of Manoyama.
