POWA Mini Golf Night at Wanneroo Botanic Gardens

POWA will be having our first (non-anime) extracurricular activity of the year, breaking free from the confines of our regular Library meeting room to do something as a community. We hope to continue with such events every few months or so this year!

First up is a round of Night Mini Golf at the Wanneroo Botanic Gardens, this Saturday, February 5th. There’s no need for booking, so just join up with other POWA members around 6pm, with hopes to tee off soon after. Entry is $20 per person.

You can learn more about Mini Golf at Wanneroo Botanic Gardens here.

Please contact a member of the committee if you would like to ask any questions about the event. We’d also like a heads up if you are coming, to make sure no one gets left behind.

The Facebook event can be found here.

We hope to see you there!

Sing a Bit of Harmony Movie Outing

Location: Event Cinemas Innaloo
Date: January 28th
Time: 7:00PM

POWA is off to the movies to see a new original comedy-drama from studio J.C. Staff – ‘Sing a Bit of Harmony’.

Our friends at Madman are offering 4 free double passes to POWA members, meaning that essentially 8 people will be seeing the movie for free. The passes will be strictly first-come, first-serve.
The movie starts at 7:00pm at Event Cinemas Innaloo, but as we cannot book ahead, we cannot guarantee seats in the cinema. Ensure that you arrive early enough to purchase your tickets at the counter so you don’t end up disappointed. This will be a screening in the original Japanese subtitled version.

Movie Synopsis:
“Sing a Bit of Harmony tells the story of the beautiful and mysterious Shion who transfers to Keibu High School where she quickly becomes popular for her open-hearted personality and exceptional athletic talent… but she turns out to be an AI (artificial intelligence) in the testing phase! Shion’s goal is to bring chronic loner Satomi “happiness.” But her strategy is something no human would expect: she serenades Satomi in the middle of the classroom. After finding out that Shion is an AI, Satomi and her childhood friend, engineering geek Toma, steadily warm up to the new student. Along with the popular and attractive Gotchan, the strong-willed Aya, and judo club member “Thunder”, they become more and more moved by Shion’s singing voice and earnestness even as her antics bewilder them. But what Shion does for Satomi’s sake ends up involving them all in some serious pandemonium… Get ready for the heartwarming story of a not quite market-ready AI and her classmates!”
