AMS October 8-9 2010 New Member Party
The AMS 24 hour New Member Party started in Kuykendal Hall at 4:00 pm on October 8, 2010. There was an anime viewing room and a videogame room. The viewing room showed The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Episodes 1-7, The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya Episodes 1 and 2, Panty and Stockings Episode 1, Heroman Episode 13 and 14. The videogame room had Super Smash Brothers and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2.
At 6:20 a meeting of the members present (37 in the room) voted whether the club should go to Hawaiian Brians or to CJ Ramen for food. Four voted for Hawaiian Brians and 15 voted for CJ Ramen – the rest abstained. It was decide that the club would leave for CJ Ramen at 7:30.
At 7:30-8:00 the club relocated to CJ Ramen, either by walking or taking a ride with one of the drivers present. Forty people arrived at CJ Ramen, more than the restaurant could hold, with 33 eating at CJ Ramen and 7 leaving to eat at nearby venues.
As they finished eating, the drivers began ferrying people to Crazy Karaoke. However, once at Krazy’s it became apparent that our party was to large to fit at Crazy’s and the club had to relocate to GS Studios in Waikiki. Approximately 38 people attended karaoke at GS Studios. The club rented two party rooms. The larger of the two party rooms was intended to be dedicated to Japanese language songs only, but, switched between languages at a few points in the night.
After karaoke the club relocated to a nearby Walmart store to shop for supplies for a morning beach trip. Note, there is some difficulty as there are to many people than can fit in the available cars.
At approximately 3:30 am (October 9, 2010) the club left Walmart and headed toward Sandy Beach on the East coast of the island. There is a short rest stop in a supermarket parking lot as the drivers regroup. A short visit is made at a nearby Safeway. The club arrives at Sandy Beach shortly after 4:00.
At the beach several games are played and the club eats what food (note, we had two hibatchis) we have as we wait for sunrise. We are rejoined by the Medieval Weapon’s club (who had been at the party earlier but had to leave). Some members swim. After sunrise, the club leaves the beach around 7:00 am to return to the UH campus.
At Kuykendal Hall once more the club begins a drinking (soda) game while watching Cromatie High (Episodes 1-6 are watched). There are 29 people still present at this point. At 10:00 sthe club divides into 1) those who will remain at Kuykendal to watch anime and set up for the remainder of the party and 2) those who will go on a shopping trip to the anime stores of Kaimuki.
Nineteen members go to Kaimuki. They visit Toys R Us, Collectors Maniacs, Toys N’ Joys, Gecko Books, “Mecha Hawaii” (this store is changing its name), and a magic shop. After a couple of hours they rejoin the rest of the club on the UH campus.
At UH, the anime viewing room and videogame room have been set up. The anime showings for the rest of the party are Eureka 7 Episodes 1-7. The videogame room has several changing games which include House of the Dead 2 and 3, Super Smash Brothers, Blazeblue, Scott Pilgrim, and Bomberman. DDR had been available but it was making too much noise and had to be put away after a professor complained.
Note, note for sometime (approximately half an hour) the power went out.
Five minutes to 4:00 the kohai (new members) who have stayed awake for the entire 24 hour party are asked to enter a dark room and wait out the last few minutes in darkness and silence. Eight kouhai have survived the 24 hours and they all remain awake in the last five minutes. In celebration of their accomplishment the club refunds them the cost of food at CJ Ramen and GS Studios karaoke.
The party rooms began closing around 5:00 pm. At 5:15 the club is gathered for final announcements and an award ceremony based on how well members participated in the activities. Throughout the night club officers recorded what party activities the club members participated in. Activities were given a point value and when combined would give the members a score for how well they partied.
Prizes are given out for the top five karaoke singers (in order, Stack, Ashley, EJ, Jill, and Alex), the highest scoring “Top Sempai” (Ashley), the highest scoring “Top Kohai” (Jill), and Best in Karaoke Show (Nico).
The total approximate attendance of the event is 43 people (30 males; 13 females).

The contestants were judged on 1) detail of the costume and 2) accuracy of the characterization. Note, results of the contest were recorded in a separate file and were not included in the Secretary’s notes. Prizes were distributed to the top three scoring contestants as well as an additional three “judges favorites” contestants.
Around 10:00 a “Plue” pinata event was held.
By 11:00 the party rooms were being shut down and equipment put away. The floor was being cleared for Zombie Tag. For those who did not want to play, the Video Room remained open.
Zombie Tag rules: There will be one starting zombie who infects others with a touch. Players can hide in rooms on the floor (except the Video Room). In the larger rooms there will be foam weapons that can be used to fend off a zombie. The weapons cannot leave the room. If a player remains in a room for more than 10 seconds they will be instantly turned into a zombie.
There was one round of Zombie Tag before the club relocated outside. The club intended to play an outside version of Zombie Tag, but, the late night and prowling campus security lead to the party being concluded and the attendees dispersing.
The total approximate attendance of the event is 64 people (49 males; 15 females).
AMS November 11 2010 Cosplay Laser Tag Event
November 11 is Veteran’s Day. Instead of a regular club meeting a club outing to play laser tag while cosplaying will be held.
The club meets at Dole Cannery around 11:30. Some members are driven by carpool from the UH campus to the Cannery. The laser tag business (Rascal’s Family Fun Center) will not open till 1:00. To pass the time the club disperses to shop at Toylyxn or to eat at the various nearbu foodshops. The club regroups at 1:00 at Rascal’s.
There are 25 club members in attendance (19 males (4 in cosplay); 6 females (2 in cosplay). We stay at Rascal’s until nearly 6:00pm. 22 members played 3 games and 3 members played 1 game. The club played in 7 shifts several shifts contained only club members in the game room. The final round consisted of 20 members of the club (there were only 20 vests available total at Rascal’s).
After the laser tag event the group carpooled back to campus. There was a discussion as to whether the club should go to eat at CJ Ramen but the attempt was aborted.
On Campus, on Kuykendal’s third floor, a videogame room (X-box and Playstation 3) and an anime showing room were opened. An officers meeting took place in another room. 13 from the laser tag event remained with the group on campus and 6 other members now joined (all members present on campus were male).
