For those of you who have been living under a rock for the last few weeks, the ANU Anime Society is having our annual anime/manga/gaming/comic convention Anime.AU.12 this Saturday from 9am to 5pm in the Manning Clark Centre at ANU. Details, tickets and other info can be found at the website and on the Facebook event page.
More importantly, we’re officially putting out a call for volunteers to help run the convention. Most of the heavy lifting has been done and we need people to help us fill in jobs on the day. Some of these jobs include (but are not limited to): Ticketing, Event registration desk, ANUAS Table, Food/Drink table, Door-watcher, Theatre watchers, general enquires and a few other things.
If you are available and willing to help out, please email us at email@example.com and tell us your name and times when you are available to help out. Or talk to one of the ANUAS Exec members at our screenings this Wednesday or Friday. One obvious benefit of helping out is that all volunteers get free entry to the convention! Also our undying love but the free entry is probably a better reward. (And if you have already volunteered to help out, it is probably a good idea to remind us too)
In a similar vein, at the convention we will have an area set up for ANUAS and its members to sell any merchandise they would like to… well… sell. If you have any anime, manga, comics or merchandise you would like to sell, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can get it sorted out. Don’t forget we are also having an auction at the end of the day so you may want to put some items into that.
Finally, we’ve got several competitions running on the day (Cosplay, Talent quest, Trivia, Games tournament, Troll dubbing) so we hope you’re all getting prepared for some fierce competition!
Can’t wait to see you all there (and hearing from some volunteers)
