Event Afternoon and Screening on Saturday 29th February 2020

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

JAFWA has the hall from about 1PM to 4:30PM, where it is make our own amusement time.

Does anybody have their own game machine and games they want their fellow JAFWAites to play? JAFWA will bring out the projector and screen. I am not certain we have access to the outdoor area, but we will try to keep you off the street.
In the past people have brought along video games and the hardware to play them, and sewing machines for cosplay creating. What do you want to do? Just so long as it fun, legal, ethical, and we don’t scuff the floor of the Hall.


Welcome to the JAFWA screening of February 29th, that happens after the Event arvo. This is the fabled 5th Saturday in February, something that is not seen often.

This week during the Dinner Break we will have a survey to determine what programs that JAFWA screens/screened that you like, an opportunity to vote your favourite preview episode into becoming a regular item.

Eizoukan niwa Te o Dasu na!

The Special General Meeting during the Dinner Break of Feb 22ndresulted in agreement that the next marathon screening will not be at the end of year, but hopefully a cooler day.
Do recall that this year is JAFWA’s 30th anniversary.

There is a possibility that JAFWA and anime club POWA (screening Sundays in Joondalup) might join forces to host an Anime Quiz Night, perhaps on July 4th. Anybody interested?

JAFWA is doing a Bunnings Sausage Sizzle on May 2nd, down at Cannington. We would appreciate a couple of volunteers to help out.
