J-Fest Mini Con

Hey Anime Fans,

I mentioned this at the previous meetups and we are doing it. This mini-con is run by the same people who did Anime Evolution and is described as such:

J-Fest is an annual 1-day event, typically held midway between the larger Anime Evolution and serves as a light version of the main convention. J-Fest offers many of the traditional events on a smaller scale including panels, video and AMV showings, gaming, artists, and vendors.

So, it has all the same things AE has but just for a smaller amount of time. It's also considerably cheaper at 10 dollars entry fee. It starts at 10am in the morning and ends at 6pm.

Getting to Douglas College is super easy: Catch a Skytrain to New West Skytrain station and walk uphill on 8th Street till you get close to Royal Ave where Douglas College will be on your right side. Those driving can find parking a the college itself or at New Westminster Skytrain where they just put in a new parking lot.

Not sure just yet what the panels, AMV's or animes will be playing that day but they might post it on the website in a couple of days. If not, we'll know when we get there.

We'll set the meetup on the west side of the building by the big stairs leading up to Douglas College and from there try and find a lineup to pickup tickets from. You probably want to wear something a bit warm and have an umbrella as it might rain.

If any of you plan to be there later, please mention so on your RSVP. If you having trouble finding the meetup then please TXT me at[masked] and I'll let you know where we are at the time.

We are also going to head over to Spagetti Wharehouse after 6pm for some dinner. It's located just a short distance downhill from Douglas College.

Should be a fun day. Hope to see y'all out.

    Pretty good short con overall. Good for those who don't have the time to commit to a full con. Not nearly as busy as the bigger cons but it did have plenty of good panels to it. It was similar to Kotatsu in terms of content but had more people attending. No fuss at all or lineups to speak of. I also registered for AE for cheap too. Overall a fun day.

    I'm not sure if I can attend but if I will, I might RSVP at the last sec.

    Hey all, my friends and I will be selling our personal collections of anime figures. All of mine are either original factory sealed or mint.
    Prices are "Cheaper than ebay market DEMAND prices (completed sales, not exuberant overpriced mark-ups)"
    If there's one that you really want to buy, please tell me, and I'll bring it.
    I'm not bringing all of them, but here's my list http://myfigurecollection.net/figz4sale
    Come get them before they're gone! :)

    The anime overdrive meetup group had posted this event earlier, so I have already marked myself as attending their meetup. That group meets at 12 noon. But I will probably see you people there. :)

      Yep. I'm sure we'll bump into each other. I'm also going to invite them to join us for Spagetti Factory afterwards.
