Trivia Night, Mon, 26 May

Trivia

Hi all, it’s time again for our annual Trivia Night, hosted by our trivia mavens, Quizmasters Keith and Ken Parker!

Don’t worry, there will be a mix of questions for everyone, Japanese and Australian alike.

We are looking to organise tables of six people, but if you don’t have enough for your own team, don’t despair we will slot you in somewhere!

$30 will get you entry, some fabulous food and a chance to win some nice goodies.

This will be another combined event so we are hoping for a big turnout (and to hopefully book out IORI+ again!)

Where IORI+, 1st Floor Deakin Soccer Club, 3 Grose Street, Deakin, 2600
Date Monday, May 26th
Time From 6:30pm
RSVP RSVP by Monday May 12th to: social.coordinator@jetaacanberra.org

May Oshaberikai, Wed, 7 May

Our May Oshaberikai and get together will be at IORI+, on Wednesday, 7th May from 6:00pm.

If you can’t speak Japanese come along anyway, we all speak English too!

For those who haven’t been before here’s how it works: You only pay for what you eat/drink. JETAA Canberra provides the renkon chips and edamame.

If you have to leave early, just find your friendly JETAA officer and settle up with them. Don’t forget to tell them what you ordered so we can check your order off the bill. We usually have change so you can pay for drinks as you go, but small bills and coins are always welcome!

Where IORI+, 1st Floor Deakin Soccer Club, 3 Grose Street, Deakin, 2600
Date Wednesday, May 7th
Time From 6:00pm

SPECIAL BANQUET - if you came along to our combined dinner with AJS and CJC earlier in the month you would have had the amazing IORI Plus banquet. The half price offer is still on so you can get a MEGA multi course (13 I believe) dinner for only $30/person! NB, you get renkon and edamame as part of the meal ;)

If you want to order a banquet, you MUST RSVP for a booking. This is because the chefs prepare some of the meals in advance on the night so they can all arrive at the right time. If you are not sure if you are able to come, there are tonnes of other tasty affordable options on the menu

Where: 1st Floor Deakin Soccer Club, 3 Grose Street, Deakin, 2600
Date Wednesday, April 2nd
Time From 6:00pm
Cost $30 for the banquet
