PAC Meeting 7/31/11! Welcome To The Space Show!

Oh sweet lovely bliss! Anime Festival Orlando 12 is almost here and we have a meeting the weekend before the convention! Last meeting, we went over various events that we will be doing at AFO and others that are worth going to... and others not so much. It's going to be a weekend of partying and as a club we all better have our swim trunks!

We will meet on Sunday, July 31st at 5PM at Full Sail University in Building 2, room 206A. Hopefully, there will not be any issues this time! The address of the building is 3300 University Blvd Winter Park, FL 32792. An interactive campus map can be found here.

First Q3 PAC Meeting on Sunday, July 17th!

It's been a real long time since we got together for a normal meeting but we'll be doing just that this Sunday, July 17th at 5PM. The location will be Full Sail University in Building 2(FS2) in room 106B. The address of Full Sail University is 3300 University Blvd, Winter Park FL, 32792. Here is a map of the campus.

We plan to show a bunch of anime that should be new to the club and provide some fun times to hang out! YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A FULL SAIL STUDENT OR STAFF TO ATTEND MEETINGS!

After many discussions with different club members over the past few weeks, it is time to change up the structure of our meetings. Meetings have gotten too long and rigid. The meetings were at their best when we were more loose in how we did things.

The First Half Of Meetings in Q3

In the first half of meetings we'll still follow a couple different anime series. We've watched a lot of classic stuff over the past year and a half so for this quarter, we'll check out some newer anime that has been released in Japan the last two years. Some great stuff has been released so we should check that out.

There will be an action block and a comedy/drama block and there will be five different series available to vote for in both. We will decide and show the winners of those blocks this Sunday!

The Second Half Of Meetings in Q3

After we return from our intermission, we'll do something different each meeting. This could be showing a movie like we usually have. Or we could do interactive events like Anime Debate Matches or AMV Contests.

It will also be possible showcase series for a one-time only deal that would definitely be worth checking out. (Remember the time we showed Cat Sh*t One? Now there will be time to do something like that.) The goal is to make the meetings more fun and make them more flexible and the second half will serve that purpose.

For this Sunday, members of our club will be showcasing a videogame that that have been developing for quite some time. I will do a primer on Anime Festival Orlando which will include how to prepare and also what events are worth checking out. (Including ours!)

Jean-Louis and I have talked to a t-shirt printing company and they have given us a quota on two different styles of t-shirts for our club. We will decide the style this Sunday and will begin taking money during the following week.

We'll end the meeting with the runner-up of the vote and see if that is more deserving than our original winners to be continued in meetings.

If you haven't been to a meeting before, this a great chance to get involved! We like to have fun and watch cool stuff together!
