Hello there everyone! Hope the rubbish Leeds weather isn’t getting you down too much..
Just wanted to touch base with you all, give out some notices about what we have planned for the next couple of weeks.
Membership Cards- Will be given out at every social and Cookies and Koucha until you all have them, so fear not!
At our Socials- Please remember to bring a valid Passport or a Driving License. If you don’t then you will more than likely not be allowed in to the building, and will certainly not be allowed to buy alcohol. I realise that Britain is pretty strict when it comes to alcohol and some of you may not be used to it…but it really is important that you bring I.D with you.
Also, I was approached by the Duty Manager at Cutherbert Brodrick who seemed to think that some members of JapSoc had brought in their own alcohol. I do not think it actually was any of you guys, but just in case, please, please don’t otherwise we’ll won’t be able to use that venue anymore…
Anyway, enough housekeeping! Now for the fun stuff we have got planned 😀
1. Wednesday 19th October, JapSoc Karaoke Party at OK Karaoke, 20.00-23.30
-We will be walking down from the Parkinson Steps at 19.30 as usual for those of you who don’t know the way, or just want to walk down with the lovely committee
-If not, here’s where it is on the map http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&q=Ok%20Karaoke%2C%20East%20Parade%2C%20Leeds&biw=1280&bih=685&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=il

3. The EARS + JapSoc Fancy Dress Halloween Party at FabCafe, Tuesday, 25th October, 20.00-3.00am. Tickets= £4 for Members and £5 for Non-Members. All are welcome, so bring your friends too! (Walking down from Parkinson Steps at 19.45)
The East Asian Research Society and the Leeds University Union Japanese Society are joining forces together to put on an amazing Halloween bash 😀
For those of you who don’t really know what exactly Halloween is (Japanese members, particularly) here’s a brief link to a website explaining all about it.http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%83%8F%E3%83%AD%E3%82%A6%E3%82%A3%E3%83%B3.
So, as per tradition, we are holding a costume party with our departmental buddies at EARS. We are holding this year’s Halloween Party at Fab Cafe, a sci-fi themed club next to the big Morrison’s Supermarket in town (http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?ie=UTF-8&hl=en&tab=wl).
Sci-Fi Memorabilia on the walls! Retro-sweets on sale at the bar! 80’s and 90’s Party tunes on the playlist made by the DJ! What more could you want?
Start preparing your costumes people! There’s no particular theme, so your costume can be scary, funny- anything you want it to be!
We unfortunately won’t be able to sell any on the door, so you and your friends (even if they aren’t members) will have to get yours fast!
£4 for Members, £5 for Non-Members
