Screening on Saturday 14th May 2022

Screening on the evening of Saturday, May 14th 2022

We have reached the end of the month of May already, and the weather will be telling us it is no longer Summery (last week’s sausage sizzle was a last hurrah – mmmm sizzled sausages).
But Fear Not, for starting this upcoming screening, JAFWA will be running on Winter hours (addressed in last year’s AGM) – hence we start and finish an hour earlier. So we will be seeing you this week for a 4:15PM start!

That is a reminder to think about the upcoming Annual General Meeting and committee elections in July. We request that all signed up members come along that afternoon to find out how the current committee have been doing over the last year, discuss issues to be dealt with, raise motions for actions to be carried out in your names, and then in the the evening vote in the new committee.

As well as out normal regular items, we will also screen a preview episode this week. The old fantasy trope of the chosen hero defeating the armies of evil. But then, what happens after that?

Yuusha, Yamemasu

Cash for Containers

As people may have noticed, JAFWA collects the recyclable containers (cans and bottles) that are disposed of by our attendees. It helps in a small way.

if you too would like to help JAFWA, and get rid of your unwanted recyclable containers, then please take them to Containers for Change, and quote JAFWA’s account number – C10505693.

Covid-19 Safety Precautions

We continue taking precautions to limit the possible future waves of CoVid-19, and we ask that you co-operate and even help where possible with our efforts to keep you safe – some social distancing, extra cleaning with antiseptic, library under limited access, etc. Also, we must ask that anyone unfortunate enough to be infected to not attend JAFWA until they are contagion free.

  • Help is always welcome during set-up and pack-up due to the extra duties imposed by COVID-19 precautions.
  • No longer need to arrive early to confirm personal details due to COVID 19 regulations. Contact Tracing, either by the SafeWA app on your keitai (mobile phones), or by signing in at the contact tracing sheet near the entry, is no longer required.
  • We are no long required by City of South Perth to check our attendees’ Vaccination status.
