Screening on Saturday 25th September 2021

Screening on the evening of September 25th 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. The Equinox will have passed, amd nights grow shorter than the daylight.

Our formal poll of regarding our grand experiment of starting (and ending) an hour earlier in May through Augusthas passed 19 to 2.

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, 2 of our regular series finish (though Attack on Titan still has part B of the final season to come out).
This week we will also preview another anime series from Japan, and witness how burn-out affects actors in a children’s TV show.


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 changed the bookings for August for this trial, now completed. – Resolution 19 to 2 that we should have 1 hour earlier starting next May through to August.
  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.

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.

JAFWA member Roy has submitted an interesting design for the logo which is under review. Any other budding artists at JAFWA who want to gives it a try?
