Event arvo and Screening on Saturday 26th November 2022

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

JAFWA has the hall from about ~1PM 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.

Sally had a wicked look in her eye as to what to do this Event Arvo.
