Event Afternoon and Screening on Saturday 20th November 2021

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

JAFWA has the hall from about 12:30PM 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.

A reminder that next weekend is Kaiga Anime Festival Kaicon (at Claremont Showgrounds). The Event Afternoon is an opportunity to try out your cosplay, with Sally and her trusty sewing machine in attendance for any last minute adjustments, if required.

Screening on the evening of November 20th 2021

JAFWA greets you after the Event afternoon. Technically this is the 31st Anniversary of JAFWA. Are you celebrating in a good way? 🙂
Have you booked interest in JAFWA’s end of year Dinner yet? Time is passing quickly, and we will need to know how many to book for.

The end of the year is rapidely approaching, and we wish to finish as many regular series as possible, so as not to inflict a long break before we resume in 2022. But that means we will have empty timeslots, so before the next survey helps us decide what to show, let us have a couple of proview episodes to add to our progran possibilities.
