I for one am glad to have survived the past month of earthquakes aftershocks, gas and food shortages and rationings, so we want to party down and drink some beers and raise money for the Japanese Red Cross Society. Admission is by donation and all drinks are 500 yen. There will be free pool and 100 yen darts! Nice. Come and join us and have fun. A Freestyle Production!
The Pool bar in Maebashi.
Along the Hirose River in central Maebashi. The cherry trees should be blooming too!

I did not organize this event but there are four good bands and should be a rocking time. It is a Thursday. Say "Shin sent me", or some equivalent, to get the prior sale price and not the day of price.

For the first time in 3 years, we will be able to view a total lunar eclipse. The eclipse can be viewed with the naked eye, binoculars, telescopes, etc. Those who want a closer look, Gunma Observatory is the perfect place and will be holding an eclipse watching gathering.
wherever you are OR at Gunma Observatory

DEADLINE TO SIGN-UP IS TOMORROW, NOVEMBER 1ST! (I apologize for not putting this up on this website earlier, but it's been on FB for a while. So make sure you join the "Gunma ALTs" FB page!)
For those of you from the northern half of the American Continent: It's Thanksgiving time! Yes, it's time to celebrate by eating Turkey with your friends and neighbours from different countries.
So come to G-FACE! Celebrations are on the same day as our midyear seminar so hopefully we'll all already be in Maebashi.
Cost: 3,500 yen
Menu: Turkey, salad, vegetables (corn, mushrooms, carrots, green peas, etc), dessert (pumpkin pie and bread pudding?)
Alcohol - We are allowed to bring 500ml of alcolholic beverages. (This is because we are on govment property and we are encouraged not to get wasted.) So 2 bottles of wine between 3 people would be about right.
We need to confirm with G-FACE the exact number of people in advance so the closing date for signing up to this event will be MONDAY, NOVEMBER 1ST. I think the maximum number will probably be around 50 people.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are on the "Attending" list come November 1st, please know that means that you're committed to attending and paying for the event.
Sign-Up over at FB!
