We're just about at the end of semester (I know I've been saying it for a while, but... darn, it's been a long semester), and it's time for the traditional dinner at our lovely sponsor Ramen Ya.


Date: Friday October 24

Time: 5:30pm onwards

Location: Ramen Ya on Bourke St - 108 Bourke Street Melbourne (near Parliament Station, or catch the tram down from uni, get off at Bourke St and walk down).


And one more thing.  We'll have Pocky - actual, honest-to-goodness Pocky - at the event.  That's right; get excited.

See you there,

Week 10 down and already I could use a break again...

But no time for that! Week 11 Movie Night is upon us! On this occasion we're going to have another double feature with Hal and Steamboy. We'll be playing Hal from 5:15 and should finish around 6:15ish and then break briefly to let people grab some dinner or discuss Hal or pre-emptively judge Steamboy. We will be giving out free Pocky* and drink as per usual so come on down and take a break from all those assignments and exam preparations.

Date: Friday, 17th October

Time: 5:15 PM for Hal, 6:45 PM for Steamboy, should finish around 9:00 PM

Location: Latham Theatre, Redmond Barry.

*Pocky subject to availability - will likely be substituted by Pretz or Pocky's Friend

Mid-Semester Marathon - 01/10/14

Posted by Giffo to the Club blog
7:51PM Wednesday, 24 September 2014

Trivia came and went and much glory and lulz were had, and now we're in week 9 on the cusp of a mid-semester (?) break. Time flies...

As per tradition, we will be having a marathon screening - in name only; as always, it'll be 1-2 episodes of several shows -during the break. The theme for this occasion will be Committee's Picks. Come along and silently (or even loudly!) judge us on what will no doubt be an exceptionally diverse selection of anime. We'll start it at 9:00 AM, but don't fret - you're free to drop in whenever you feel like it. Only we, the committee, have to suffer the torture of waking up early during the break.

Date: Wednesday, 1st October

Time: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Location: Babel Middle Theatrette

Hope to see you there, and please don't judge our selection too harshly.
