Dear members, <br /><br />Once again the university has changed the room that we meet in. Instead of Bakeless 306, we are now meeting in Bakeless 303. I find this unacceptable. Room 303 has the possible issue of having someone unlock the projectors. Unless I can get them to assure us that the projectors will be unlocked every Monday and Thursday at 8 p.m., we may have to abandon Bakeless for Centennial Hall. In order to address this problem the following steps are being taken:<br /><ol><li>The officers and I will meet with the building manager and try to ensure that the projectors are unlocked. If that fails we may have to relocate.</li><li>I am going to send an email about this situation to our advisor.</li><li>The officers and I are going to write a formal complaint to the CGA. Once again, I must profoundly apologize for any confusion that this may cause to new and old members alike. Please keep checking the club website and Facebook page for updates.</li></ol>Ryan Pancavage<br />BUMAC President
Due to Bloomsburg becoming a second Atlantis, the film fest scheduled for this weekend has been canceled. A new date for it will be posted once everything stabilizes. Also, there will be no club meeting on Monday September 12 because the university is closed. Please stay tuned for further club updates. Be safe, keep dry, and have a good weekend.
At our information meeting we watched My Bride is a Mermaid.<br /><br />Overview: Nagasumi’s in hot water after a beautiful, young mermaid named Sun saves
him from drowning. The deep-sea sweetheart’s dad is a merman Yakuza
prone to executing anyone who learns his family’s scaly secret! Luckily,
there’s a catch – if Nagasumi agrees to marry Sun, he just might avoid
sleeping with the fishes! Of course, the honeymoon ends before it
even begins when Nagasumi finds his life flooded with gilled gangsters
looking out for their boss’s little girl. The kid’s definitely in over
his head, but there’s no denying the mermaid’s allure – Nagasumi’s
hooked and Sun’s ready to come ashore!
On Thursday September 1st, 2011 the Information meeting will be held in Bakeless Center Room 306 from 8:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. <span class="event-description">This
is a good time for new and old members to introduce themselves and
for everyone to get a feel for the club. Volunteers will be asked for
Freshman Representative positions. </span><span class="event-description">We will be showing a pre-chosen anime,
time permitting. </span><br /><br />We will see you all there!<br />
At our unofficial meeting we watched Lupin III: The Last Job.<br /><br />Overview (From Wikipedia): Lupin
sends a letter to Zenigata announcing he will steal their cargo, the Buddha's
statue. Lupin succeeds and Zenigata gives chase. A villain named Morgana
intervenes the chase, stealing the statue and killing Zenigata in the process.
After Zenigata's funeral, Lupin reveals to his comrades he was after the secret
inside the Buddha statue. Asuka, revealing she is part of the Fuma Ninja clan
and explains the statue's secret leads to a device known as the Fujin and her
clan had left her to protect its secrets.
We’d like to apologize for the confusion around tonight’s meeting; Bloomsburg University placed a class in Bakeless Center Room 105 without informing us. Our officers are working on acquiring a new room for the semester, and we will be announcing it shortly. Thanks to everyone who attended our unofficial meeting tonight and thank you for your patience!<br />
