Spring Quarter Announcements

Monday, March 29th, 2010

Hello! Hope everyone has come back from spring break refreshed!

Meetings for spring quarter will be on Fridays at 3:30pm in HUB 304F - for the most part. On April 16 we meet in Suzzallo 328, April 23 in HUB 209B, and May 28 in Suzzallo 328. Please make note of the differing locations!

We have some awesome things planned out for this quarter, including and not limited to:

– A group “field trip” to Uwajimaya, the Daiso, and other parts of Seattle’s International District!

– A presentation by a professional comic book artist!

– New posters and fliers for the club!

DON’T FORGET: SAKURA-CON is THIS WEEKEND, April 2-4

Sakura-con is this area’s largest and best anime convention, with over 13,000 attendants from last year.  Find great J-Cool/anime merchandise, visit some great drawing/story related panels, see concerts, find Vic Mignona (oh wait for once he’s not here!), cosplay, and have fun with random but friendly people!

Tickets at the door.  Party on the floor.  And do it some more.

As one individual put it so eloquently: Girugamesh!

Check back here in a few days for the meeting schedule and topics for spring quarter :)
