Screening on the evening of September 18th 2021

Remenber that we have returned to holding JAFWA sessions starting at 5:15PM. Mainly due to our old enemy the sun, trying to once more take ascendency in the sky. Though we haven’t yet quite reached the Equinox.

This week we shall be organising a formal poll of your ideas regarding our grand experiment of starting (and ending) an hour earlier in August, and the possibility of a permanent change to our Winter operating hours.

We start a couple of new series tonight, so it is the perfect time to bring along friends and introduce them to JAFWA.

  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.
