Welcome Party 14/3
Hope you guys have managed to settle in after the first week, but the fun doesn't stop there: we are holding a Welcome Party for all of our members — it's party time~
Date: Friday 14th of March
Time: 5:30pm - 9:00pm
Location: Union House Lounge
It's a great opportunity to meet other members, both old and new. There will be plenty of entertainment ranging from games and anime to plenty of food. From consoles to board games, there should be something for everyone to enjoy. If you have a console or any games you would like to bring along, feel free to contact [email protected] so we can confirm whether we have enough screens, space or the right consoles.
Not only that, if you want to order a takeaway bento from our sponsors Ramen Ya, make sure to fill out our order form and you'll get $5 discount on your meal, simply for being a member. We would also appreciate it if you could RSVP using the form even if you aren't ordering dinner through us, just so we can get a general idea of numbers. Feel free to bring along friends, as signups will be made available on the night.
Welcome to WWWA 2014
A warm welcome to all our new members who signed up during O-Week and welcome back to our renewed members. We would appreciate if you could take some time to read the rest of the email as it contains information related to our screenings and upcoming events. If you can't be bothered, check out our website for more details. We also have afacebook page which is a great place to keep up to date on our events and a chance to mingle with other members of the club.
If you were forcibly coerced into joining this club or suddenly suffered amnesia and can't remember who we are and why you have a shiny new membership card in your wallet, Weekly Watchers of Wonderful Anime is a club dedicated to the viewing, discussion and exploration of both anime and manga. Should you still be curious, we have an FAQ page that will go into more detail on who we are and what we do.
We will be bringing along to our screenings the extensive anime library of DVDs and NAS (network attached storage device) so you can borrow from our collection. To borrow from the NAS however you'll need to bring your own laptop with a few pieces of software installed (details are on our library site). We endeavour to bring the library to all screenings - but sometimes we just can't get to them all. To make sure it's there on the day you want, you can email our librarian Jerome at [email protected]
Manga Discussion Event
Not only that, we are also having an upcoming manga discussion event during the first week. This is a great event to meet with other fellow manga readers and lovers and unleash your inner passion. Although we will supplement the event with manga from Rowden White Library, we strongly encourage you to bring along any copies that you might own and feel like sharing. The theme for this event is "Manga 101" (apologies to the members who went to last years event with the same theme, but it's a good one to start with).
Date: Thursday 6th of March
Time: 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Venue: Union House Second Floor - Graham Cornish A
If you happen to know someone who hasn't signed up yet and may be interested in joining, or if you just didn't get time in O-Week to sign back up, feel free to come along to any of our events. Membership is only $5 and it means access to lots of anime, manga, events and the almighty Pocky. Being a member also allows you to receive discounts at all of our sponsors which can be found on our sponsors page. Also don't forget to join our Facebook Page if you haven't already done so.
Looking forward to another great year,
Your WWWA Committee
WWWA at O-Week 2014
The dawn has risen upon a new year and hopefully everyone has had an enjoyable summer break but as they finally come to an end, we start up again. To kick things off, we are holding our annual O-Week stall as well as our (now) traditional raffle and sponsor run. Get hyped, for it is time to experience that rose-coloured campus life once again.
Event: Sign-up Stall
Date: Thursday the 27th of February
Location: South Lawn
Time: 11:00am - 3:00pm
At 3:00pm we will be holding the raffle - you got to be in it to win it! In this case, "it" is a number of wonderful prizes from our sponsors. After the raffle we will be heading off on our sponsor run, hitting all our major sponsors in the city and ending up at Ramen Ya for an early dinner. If you just want to meet us there for dinner we should be there by 4:30 or 5.
In addition to our stall, raffle and sponsor run, we will also be holding anime marathons on both Thursday and Friday. Come down with a group of friends and indulge in a visual overload. The theme of the marathons is "whatever the committee wants to show".
Date: Thursday the 27th of February and Friday the 28th of February
Location: Babel Building - Lower Theatrette (both days)
Time: 10:00am - 4:00pm (both days)
So the time to sign up has once again has arrived. Memberships are available at our stall on Thursday and the marathon room on Friday, so be sure to renew your membership and be rewarded with a free gift bag. Do note that you need to sign up again each year to continue being a member of the club.
End of Exams Marathon - 27/11
Exams are finally over for some of us (and not long now for the rest!) so it's time to kick back, close the curtains and pull the fridge into arm's reach in preparation for the summer break. As the year draws to a close, the final event to farewell 2013 for the club with be another anime marathon. The theme for this marathon will be a mystery - we haven't actually decided yet, but everything we show will be good, I promise!
Date: Wednesday 27th of November
Time: 9:00am - 5:00pm
Room: Babel Building - Middle Theatrette
As always, we will be showering pocky and soft drinks on those who attend, so bring a few friends and come along to this open event one last time.
