Otakon's Matsuri Festival

Genshiken has a table at Otakon's Matsuri Festival on Thursday. I will hand out flyers about Genshiken and tell people about the group.

This is a free event. Even if you are not coming to Otakon, you can still attend. See http://otakon/events_matsuri.asp ; for the actual location by the Science Center and the Inner Harbor.

Anyone is welcome to come join us behind the table and hang out while we tell people about our group, as well as set up games people can play for prizes. Even if you do not wish to help out or are uncomfortable trying to talk/convert people, you are still welcome to come and hang out with everyone there. There will also be live music and sumo wrestling on the stage to watch.


NOTE:  It starts at 12pm, but I will not be there until 2pm because I will still have to work for half a day.

UPDATE:  I have included a document in the Files section of Genshiken.   It's a word document for a game there.  I will place pieces of paper (one for each anime title) for everyone to draw two entries from.  Then, they guess which of the two anime titles has the most fan art on DeviantArt.com.  Then, they do it again with FanFiction.net.  If they can guess correctly twice, then they win a prize.   I have many CD's, DVD, etc that I will be giving out.  

There should also be a game that Otakon will give us, and I want to try and get the hard ball balancing game we had last time.

    So the link in the discription is broken and I'm on the light now; where is this exactly?

      It's in the inner harbor, if you get off the light right at the CC and walk in front of and past it you'll get to the harbor, turn right and follow it down.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
