The normal plan is something like this:
Informal gathering and chit-chat: Before 7. (I'm usually there by 6:30)
Half-hour anime viewings by reservation (send me an email to hold a slot): 7-9
Movie Time: 9-11 (alternates between anime and "regular" movies, sometimes just more anime)
Wii gaming: Room 108 from about 9pm on.
PS3/XBOX360 Gaming: Room 107 from about 9pm on.
The Deviation from the normal plan may be:
AWESOME short slideshow presentation of recent trip to Japan last month, as well as Q and A for all inquiring minds.
Refreshments (and the meetings themselves) are free but signing the sign-in sheet is GREATLY appreciated (it's what prompts the school to keep paying for the food), Contributions are invited as well but not required.
We have a great venue within the school and appreciate the continued hospitality that we are offered, that being considered we are all guests within the facility. It is not just appreciated, but common courtesy to please use trash receptacles to dispose of any and all waste. The Anime viewing room is ONLY allotted space in which food and/or beverage are allowed. The gaming rooms ARE NOT permitted to have any open or CLOSED containers of food and/or beverage. We want to show our appreciation and adhere to the venues guidelines to ensure further Meetups at venue. I have to clear the building at 11, so any help in getting rooms into perfect condition is ALWAYS APPRECIATED.
Suggestions for anime, movies or segments can be sent to me via this Web site using the "Contact Us" link. Movie showings are based on suggestions and sometimes informal audience polling, but are generally planned in advance. Every now and then we'll run out of reserved slots and open the floor.
Chit-chat is allowed (even expected) during viewings, so if you prefer to watch your anime quietly and not miss any dialog then you should watch them at home before or after meetings. We chat a lot and you might miss dialog! It's a very active (but quite friendly) crowd.
Any questions can be sent to me via email and I'll usually get back to you within a day. Stay Safe everyone and let's make this Meetup memorable..........and as always COSPLAYERS are ALWAYS welcome!!!!
