AIU After Japan Anime Club Meetup!

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!!!!

      There isn't a building number specifically, once you enter, you'll only see one building that reads American Intercontinental University (AIU for short) Room 114/115, there are connected rooms. Glad to see you have chosen to attend our Meetup. Your attendance is greatly appreciated as well.

    I CAN'T wait to see everyone's smiling faces tomorrow. It's the end of the week and more importantly Veteran's weekend; we get to enjoy a Monday off (most of us) and also honor the many men and women who served our Country. Please let me know if you have any question prior to arriving on the board or in person tomorrow night. I'm the extremely positive (almost always smiling) guy near the front of the room. I want to welcome EVERYONE (OLD and NEW members) to a great night with Food (not just chips lol hot food) and Beverages. I still have a few spots available, so if you haven't already messaged them to me; I'll see you tomorrow with your entries. :-) KAWAII
