Stuff is happening

Hey Guys!

In case you aren’t on our mailing list or Facebook page, Pizza Night is happening on Friday, the 24th of April.

Where, you ask? In the Manning Clark Centre foyer.

When, you ask? There will be an intermission between screenings at 7:00pm solely to worship the great Pizza God. (Screenings start at 5:00 pm)

If you can’t make that, then there’s another event for gamers and cosplayers alike to flourish and show off their beauty and grace: Battle of the Game, which is being held at Reload on the 3rd of May. (More info at https://www.facebook.com/events/641089579359279/)

It will be a heavenly event involving alcohol, cosplay, pizza, games and prizes!

Break Time

Hey guys!
 
For those who don’t study at ANU we have a teaching break for two weeks starting this week so the screenings schedule will be a bit different. In case you’ve fallen behind with the regular screenings, this would be a great opportunity to come along because we’re not showing the regular screenings!
The screenings during this time will be:
Wednesday 8th April:

6:00 – Anime Mirai 2014: Harmonie
6:25 – Tales of Zestiria Special
7:15 – Zetsumetsu Kigu Shoujo episode 1
7:40 – Hen Zemi OVA 1

Friday 10th April:
5:00 – Hamatora episodes 1-6

Wednesday 15th April:
6:00 – Anime Mirai 2014: Chronus
6:25 – Tokyo Marble Chocolate
7:15 – Zetsumetsu Kigu Shoujo episode 2
7:40 – Hen Zemi OVA 2

Friday 17th April:
5:00 – Hamatora episodes 7-12

Unfortunately, due to complications there has been a lack of pizza night (sorry, guys!). However, this will hopefully be sorted during the break and pizza will be the result (probably after mid-semester exam season).

Have a happy Easter, everyone!

Welcome and 2015 AGM

Hey everyone,

It’s perhaps a bit late in the semester to be saying this, but welcome to all the new members and welcome back to all the old ones.

trigun-pictures-47

Welcome!

If you haven’t had a chance to check out our weekly screenings I suggest you do so soon (this week perhaps). We’re not far in so it’ll still be easy to catch up. And if you don’t fancy a particular show you can chill outside and play some awesome games.

Also if you weren’t aware, our AGM is this Friday (6th March), at 6pm in Manning Clark Theatre 3. We’ll be hearing from the 2014 Exec about how last year went and then electing new people to run the club for 2015. So if you want to have a legit reason to ignore assessment and help run an award winning student society, you should consider running.

The agenda for the AGM and some information on the Exec positions are attached to this post. I think. With any luck we’ll be able to smash it out in 30 minutes (or less!) and get straight back into watching anime and playing games.

Cheers!

James
President

ANUAGS Exec Position Descriptions

ANUAGS O-Week, Sem 1 Screenings and AGM

Hey everyone!

University semester is about to start which means that is it business time for ANUAGS!

O Week!

Wednesday Screenings: This year we’re having special O-week screenings supported by Madman and Hanabee! They will start at 6pm on Wednesday the 11th of Feb and be in the Manning Clark Centre. First up is the Eva 1.11 movie followed by Fate/stay night:Unlimited Bladeworks Episode 0. Gaming will also be happening at the same time.

Friday Laser Tag: Once again we’ll be doing O-week Laser Tag. It will be on Friday the 13th of February at Zone 3. It will start at 6:15pm but a bunch of people will meet up earlier at 5pm in the Belconnen Westfield food court. It will be $10 per person for three games. Places are limited so it is first-come-first-served, with priority going to a) ANUAGS members and b) people who pre-pay for a spot at a screenings meet beforehand

Semester 1 Screenings

Semester 1 Screenings will start the week after O-week, i.e Wednesday the 18th and Friday the 20th. Check out the links for the schedule or go to the screenings page on our website for all the details about the shows.

Thanks to Madman, Hanabee and Siren Visual for supporting our screenings by providing us with some awesome shows!

2015 Memberships and AGM

As the new uni year starts, it’s time to renew your membership. It costs $10 for the year (about 5c per activity/night XD) and can be paid at any of our screening nights.

Also we’ll be holding our AGM on Friday the 6th of March. There will be a break in the Friday screenings at 6pm so we can hold it in the lecture theatre. It’s a good chance for members to have their say on what the Society is doing right and what it is doing wrong. In addition we’ve got to elect an Executive Committee for 2015 several of the current Executive members will be moving on to other things. So if you think you’d like to have a shot at running ANU’s best student club (we even have an award to prove that!) you should consider running for a position. A list of current positions and their tasks can be found here

Hope to see you all around!

2015 Memberships and AGM!

Hey everybody- just a quick one to let you all know that we’ll start taking 2015 memberships this week. It will remain at $10 for the year (~5c per night XD).

So bring your monies along, sign up for another year and get a shiny new membership card.

We’ll also announce O-week stuff shortly. We’re waiting on external factors out of our control at the moment :(

Also the AGM is coming up soon (specifically Friday March 6th at 6pm) so people should think about nominating for positions. I’ve attached an info sheet that gives an idea about the different positions and their roles.

ANUAGS Summer stuff

Hey everyone!!

We hope that everyone who had exams in the last month smashed them. As this lovely summer weather starts to defrost Canberra you’re surely starting to wonder what you’re going to do over the Summer/Holiday/Christmas period.

Well don’t worry- ANUAGS had you covered! Once again we are going to keep running our weekly events throughout the whole summer, only stopping over the compulsory ANU closure period. That being said our usual venue of the MCC is unavailable for December so we’ve had to organise alternate places to do our stuff:

Monday Console Gaming (6-11pm)- Brian Kenyon Student Space (BKSS)
Wednesday Screenings + Tabletop (6-9pm)- Chemistry Theatre 1 (Chem T1)
Friday Screenings + Tabletop (5-8pm)- Chemistry Theatre 1 (Chem T1)

(Plus we’ve got our Minecraft Server which you can spend time on whenever you like)

For those of you familiar with the ANU Campus, the BKSS is located in Union Court next to the Commonwealth Bank. Chem T1 is located in the (old) Science Precinct on University Avenue.

For those of you unfamiliar with ANU I’ve here’s map where I’ve used my mad Microsoft Paint skillz to mark the new venues along with our normal venue, the nearest bus stop and car park suggestions.

ANUAGS Summer Venues

If you want to know what we’re screening over the Summer check out the brief info here and the full details here.

In addition to this regular stuff there is also a few other upcoming events that we’d like to let you know about:

UCREC Theven UP!, the last of UCREC monthly meet ups is tomorrow (Friday November 28th). It’s all afternoon in the UC Refectory and you can find out all the info on their facebook event.

Canberra Colloseum 11, the monthly Smash Bros Gaming Tournament we host is on this Saturday in the MCC. Again it’s all afternoon and all the info can be found on the facebook event.

ZEAL, Canberra’s largest Smash Bros/Gaming Tournament is being hosted by us and held on December 13th-14th (Saturday and Sunday), pretty much all day on both days. It’s got some pretty serious prize monies and is shaping up to be an awesome event. All the info can be found on the facebook event page.

Ja mata!!

(P.S. If you have any suggestions for 2015 Semester 1 Screenings or boardgames we should buy for our collection shoot us an email or talk to an Exec member at our weekly activities)

Holiday Screenings 2014/2015

Wednesdays:
6:00pm – Mikakunin de Shinkoukei
6:30pm – Haikyuu!!
7:00pm – Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin
7:30pm – Maria Holic Alive
