Video Game Room: bring your video games and equipment with you to the party and play to your heart's content!
Officer Trivia Finals: certain past officers of Minna no Anime challenge the current officers with a crazy, anything goes Anime Trivia.
Cosplay: we'd love to see your costumes!
Karaoke: during Dinner Break and before the first movie, karaoke will be available! The list of songs are here. If you have any requests, please email anniversary[at]minnanoanime.org and we'll see if we can get it in time for the party.
MoviesHere's a description of the movies!
Millennium Actress: Directed by Satoshi Kon, director of Paranoia Agent and Paprika. Follow the life and movie history of an actress from her childhood to her much, much older years in a visually stunning, emotionally moving masterpiece.
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time: Directed by Mamoru Hosoda, known for Summer Wars and Wolf Children. It is, as you would expect, about a girl who physically leaps through time, but of course, time travel isn't all fun and games...
FoodI'm hungry, you're hungry, we're all hungry! What will be offered at the Anniversary Party?
Dinner Break: 2 free pizza slices and a slice of cake! Two cake options available: white cake and chocolate cake. Yum!
Goshi on Sunday: All you can eat buffet of what Goshi has to offer - Japanese traditional dishes and sushi. If you're attending, please give Mike Whipp $10 (American) on Saturday, or please notify him at anniversary[at]minnanoanime.org to make other arrangements. Soda, water and tea are free. If you plan on ordering specialty items or drinking alcoholic beverages, you will need to bring extra money with you.
Volunteering and DonationsWant to help out with the anniversary? Here's how:
Volunteer: Email anniversary[at]minnanoanime.org with your availability for either day, or let an officer/committee member know!
Donations: Donate through PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org (Mike Whipp) or see Mike Whipp on either day to help out financially.
About Parking!Saturday: Weekend enforcement of parking has not started at Cal Poly (it was rumored to be starting in the Winter). You may park as allowed by the signage of the various lots near the Silo.
Sunday: For those attending Goshi on Sunday and haven't been to San Luis Obispo recently, please note that you have to start paying for street/structure parking starting at 1 PM on Sundays. The parking lots right next to Goshi are still free since they're for that plaza, but pretty much everywhere else costs money. If you are coming for movie 2 at Cal Poly the same rules as Saturday apply. Hope to see you guys this weekend!
