To those who were intrested in the high school anime club affiliation,
sorry for thinking too far ahead, I figured we need something planned before we actually get things prepped up for it. For those who want a solid base so you know what to expect...the basics is a club competetion/party. We will have various events which club members can compete in to decide who is the best anime club and have more of those party/competitions to see if the club can defend their title. Whoever gets the most wins/points (given to each race and such) or protects their title the longest will be anime club of the year. We wanted a trophy or something of the like awarded to the winning club, but those are expensive, so a plaque will do, or a certificate of some sort. Other than that, we will arrange for each club participating in this event to bring food for a big potluck so club members can get their tummy filled, can meet other anime fans from other schools, and exchange ideas or just talk about anime. We will arrange a tradeoff, so say if one fan has an unwanted anime DVD, they can trade with others or sell it off, rather than let it gather dust. Other than that, we will have clubs exchange ideas, so if one club wants to fundraise, but can't think of what to fundraise, maybe another club can help. If one club needs more helping hands on a project, maybe another club can plan out how they can help the other club. For HOW this is going to all happen, we will choose a park not too far away from any school that has many tables and such and has a lot of open room for the competitions. We will plan for each club to bring a certain type of food (like appetizers, desserts, etc.), the competitions can be like normal old hacky sack races, tug-o-war, and other sports/anime-knowledge related events. For the supplies for the events themselves, each school can contribute, someone's got to have something we need, if not, we can buy it, what we need is most likely not that expensive. For the anime tradeoff, we'll set up something like artist alley at Fanime, and have people (officers mainly) watching to make sure no one tries to steal from the buyer (it's bound to happen).
And by the way, our club president has approved of this affiliation long ago and left this in my hands due to the fact that she has other things to attend to (i.e. summer school).
Any other questions, or need-to-know's about my affiliation idea? Feel free to ask, I'll clear up all misunderstandings and the like here nd now.
