October 27th, 2009
So, I won't be there for the meeting tonight because I got the flu and went home like a nice considerate person who didn't want to make everybody else sick. Which is okay because I get to sleep all day and there's not much new anyway. There were 27 people who gave me money for Ohayocon, so either Jon or I will work on getting our badges by the end of the week.
Also, our bake sale fundraiser is November 7th at the college gate from 10 PM until we decided to stop. Anybody who wants to cook for that please give me your address for the food permit. I think we're doing brownies and cookies and maybe rice crispy treats. It'll be fun, so everybody should stop by and help out! Somebody should make a poster, too! If anybody wants to volunteer to make the poster, leave a comment. Otherwise I can make one... but it'll be contaminated and you'll all get sick and die. :D
That's all from me.

I hope everybody is alright with me running Anime Jeopardy because I am really looking forward to it and have been planning out my own questions for quite some time. (Hey, I get bored when I'm by myself and Max is actually being good for once) And if I'm not able to make it to the meeting, I hope that everything goes smoothly, and that everybody is doing well.
Hugs from the Longworths,

My name has two + mine (mine is unrelated to JCON)
Lisa Maple has 3
Haley Maple has 3
The names do not matter but we'll have to get this all sorted out.
Rooms are $109/night
Badges cost the following
Pre-Registration Phase 1 = July 16 - August 31 = $30
Pre-Registration Phase 2 = September1 - October 31 = $35
Pre-Registration Phase 3 = November 1 - January 10 = $40
If you register for 10 or more badges at the same time you will get a $5 discount per badge.
So ideally 4 people per room at october group reg will be ($84.5)
If we VIOLATE RULES then and put a max of 6 people per room (not soemthing I'm a fan of since the are all under my credit card right now) : $66.33
BUT THERE IS TAX ON THE ROOMS I don't know what that is
I ALSO DO NOT WANT TO PAY FOR ALL THESE ROOMS EVEN IF WE CANCEL SOME

Hey JCON, it's Hanna. Here's the tentative schedule for the quarter's showings. If we calculated wrong, please let me know. It looks good as far as I can tell, but we may have missed something.

The first meeting went very well. I was really happy to see so many new faces and look forward to getting to know everyone over the course of the quarter.
REMINDER!: In order to vote in club on what shows we're watching, you need to be a paid member. Make sure you bring your money to either the showing or the next meeting and give it to Zabeth.
$10 per quarter or $20 for the year
Ponyo, the new Miyazaki film, is playing at the Athena Cinema starting Friday Sept. 10th. Bueno told me that a manager at the Athena wants to encourage all people interested in anime to attend one of the showings there in order to encourage them to show more Japanese films.
Also, Yamato drummers are going to be at Memorial Auditorium on Oct. 28th. I would like to see if we can all go as a group. I think it would be fun!
More news on this later.
That's all for now. See you at the showing Friday 6pm-midnight, Morton 235.
President Obi over and out!

I hope you have been having a great summer.
A couple of you have contacted me already about the beginning of the school year, so here's the info:
Just so you know, there will indeed be our first meeting on Tuesday Sept. 8 (first day of classes) at 7:00pm (we'll begin no later than 7:15).
Expect a large attendance as per every year. We'll welcome in the new year by everyone introducing themselves and giving us some interesting facts about themselves. We'll also go over what the club is about, some of the things that we do, and we will also nominate episodes and vote on them for the grab bag showing for that first friday (the 11th).
[Non-members will be able to vote at this first meeting]
As for the student involvement fair (Mon. Sept. 7, 3:30-5:30), I would like us to have fliers to pass out with our club info, meeting time and showing time. Would anyone like to design it? It doesn't have to be complicated. The simpler the better. I'm not very photoshop savvy so anyone who can, please let me know ASAP. (There are some example fliers from past years in the photos page of this facebook group)
Also, it would be good to have a display of manga, magazines, figurines, and if anyone has a lot of J-Pop or J-Rock music and/or videos and would entrust us to keep an eye on your laptop during the fair, that would be awesome. (It would be on battery since OU won't provide us with electric power)
Lisa motioned for us to get together to prepare for the involvement fair and the first meeting. I propose an ad-hoc committee to work on this. It shouldn't be terribly hard. And any will-be members for this year I'll make sure get member of the month points for helping out during the prep meeting (sorry officers, only regular members get the points, but I definitely need your help, too).
Those interested at all, please respond soon what day works for you. I'm thinking either Saturday the 5th or Sunday the 6th when most of us are back in town. Remember, the fair is on Monday the 7th.
FEEL FREE TO LEAVE A COMMENT HERE, BUT I'LL RESPOND FASTER VIA FACEBOOK MESSAGING AS WELL AS THE JCON FACEBOOK GROUP.

Can you believe that it's only about 2 weeks until we go back to school? I'm working on updating the website a bit right now and was wondering if you all had any comments, suggestions, or ideas. Please leave anything (or even just to say hi) in the comments. Have a great rest of the summer and I can't wait to see everyone in September! ^^

Edit: I almost forgot! If anyone has a website they want me to add let me know! There's a little section for members' sites on the contact page.
