Hi everyone. Just a quick update, particularly on our family Okonomiyaki BBQ!
The BBQ is on from 11:00 this Sunday 27 February 2011 at the Kings Park Synergy Parkland.
As always, we will have free okonomiyaki, free hot dogs, free drinks and entertainment including watermelon-bashing, origami, Aussie sports, stilt-walking and hopefully (possibly!) mochi pounding.
Attendance is free for everyone, including non-members who are interested in Japanese or Australian culture. Children are especially welcome!
Please RSVP ASAP and by Friday at the very latest.

The annual quiz night with JAPSSOC looks set for March 22, 23, 29 or 30 – watch this space! Please let us know if you are keen to attend (we had over 100 people last year) and one of those dates suits you better!
The AGM will likely be Friday 25 March at 43 Below, the location for kaiWA. Thanks to those who have nominated for the committee or RSVPd so far. Remember, all positions are open, so please keep nominating! In particular, we have not yet received nominations for:

We also have news of a job opportunity at the Consulate-General:
Finally, Japanite is on again for February, this Saturday 26 February. See the attached flyer for details.
