Event Afternoon and Screening on Saturday 28th August 2021

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

It has been 3 months since the last one. JAFWA has the hall from about 12:00PM to 3:30PM, 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, and see if your game machine can plug into it. 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.

Early Screening on the late afternoon and evening of August 28th 2021

This month we are experimenting with holding the JAFWA sessions an hour earlier, to counteract the cold Winter.

So remember to turn up for a 4:15 start! During the month of August only. Next month we go back to the normal 5:15PM start.

This being the last JAFWA session in August, expect usual end of month Survey during the Dinner Break this week. There will be a few new timeslots opening in the program starting next month, and the surveys help the JAFWA committe decide upon what to put on.
Followed by the monthly Member’s Prize draw.

This week will be the final episode of “Ascendance of a Bookworm”. A pleasant little isekai show, that did not suffer from being overpowered in the fantasy department.

Ascendance of a Bookworm

Annual General Meeting resolutions

Resolutions that occurred during the AGM on July 17th include:

  1. Experiment with earlier hours during the coldest part of Winter. We have changed the bookings for August for this trial.
  2. Have a celebratory Dinner for the JAFWA committee members and general members, to be held on the evening of Saturday December 18th 2021, in lieu of a screening.
  3. New mascot design – will try asking at the next Artist’s Alley.
  4. Tell people they can sponsor an anime night.
  5. Obtain new mascot design.

We will be attempting to implement these as soon as practical.

Currently we are looking for suggestions for a location for the dinner, and we are taking expressions of interest for attendees.
We will need to make the booking by the end of October, so places and attendance by then.
