Our first event of the semester, the Welcome BBQ has passed and wow, that was a blast! We got around 150 attendees and all of us had to rush around to get the event going. But it was sure worth it. Congratulations to the winners of trivia who got some of these prizes.
Well what else can we say? Our expectations were blown out of the water, especially with previous years’ turnout being significantly lower and how we easily ran out of food to serve. Sorry to all those who wanted second helpings. A huge thanks to all who showed up and hopefully this is a sign of the great things to come this year!
As for things that are coming soon, the City Tour is happening this Saturday!
This is a joint event in AnimeMQ (Link here: https://www.facebook.com/animemacq/) where we get to show you the locations of some of our Sponsors! The places we’ll be visiting are Anime at Abbotsford City Store, Hondarake, Yogurberry Chinatown, Maruyu, Anime Kaika, Good Games Town Hall and of course, Kinokuniya.
We’ll meet at Central Station’s Grand Concourse at 10am where we’ll make our way towards Town Hall with a lunch break at Chinatown. And although not official, some people might go karaoke afterwards (However this is not something guaranteed).
Anyway, we hope to see you there!
As for another thing, the winners of our lucky draw have been announced!
Third prize, the Astolfo Poster went to Adam Irwin.
Second prize, the Emilia Nesoberi was won by Nijiao Yu
And finally First Prize, the Black Saber Figurine was won by Bob Zhang!
These lucky people will get notified via email or a social media platform like Facebook and they can pick up their prizes during Drinks Night on Friday Week 2.
Drinks Night I say? Of course! Our first alcohol consumption event of the year is happening on Friday 16th where we all get to hang out and chill after a long week of getting used to uni. We’ll post up more details in a future post.
