This week we will have our monthly member’s prize draw, after we have our monthly survey of the various shows we have screened recently. So vote well in the survey, using an ordinal scale from 1 for most favourite, 2 for second favourite, and so on up to 20, if you have opinions on all twenty titles. Unfortunately I am not permitted to say “vote often”, merely “vote well”.

On December 14th we will have our end of year marathon screening, and your Suggestions are welcome. The JAFWA committee has already scheduled room for “Akira”, and we have received a request for the movie “Millenium Actress”, as well as the “Girls und Panzer” movie, and something “Gundam”. Any other requests/suggestions?
Be aware, we also intend to run an auction on behalf of our members. Tell us what you want us to auction of yours, preferably well in advance, so we can schedule enough time into the program, as well as inform people so that they can bring plenty of money to bid.

A reminder that JAFWA member Dale is offering to do a bulk import order of Japanese calendars, in order to reduce shipping costs. The 2020 calendars are currently in their pre-order discount period, with such titles as seen here or here, with more to come as the publishing companies confirm their schedules. Is anyone interested in ordering Japanese calendars via Dale?
