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.

Screening on the evening of Saturday, February 25th 2023

JAFWA has come to the end of February. And you know what that means – Our monthly Member’s Prize Draw (Woo-Hoo!), along with our member survey to see what you like in the program, and what you don’t.
This particular survey will help JAFWA determine which new regular series will start in March.

This week we farewell a couple of series, “The Devil is a Part-Timer“, and “Ascendance of a Bookworm“. I suspect a few people are hoping that another season of these anime is produced.

Devil is a Part-Timer Ascendance of a Bookworm

The next fundraising for JAFWA at Cannington Bunnings sausage sizzle is scheduled for Saturday May 6th, and we would like a volunteer or 3 to help out.

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.
