2019 Pokemon Go Event

Meet other trainers, battle to control multiple gyms, stock up at several Pokestops, and make some friends to trade with. All for FREE!



How long does the event last?

Registration begins at 1 p.m. The actual event begins at 1:30 p.m. The event, including prize distribution, will end by 4 p.m.

Are there prizes?

Yes! There will be prizes for the trainers who are in control of the gyms on the library property at the end of the event. Trainers can only win one gym-control prize even if they control more than one gym. There will also be team prizes and a special prize for participants ages 12 & under.

Will there be Pokestops with lures?

Yes, the first lure will be activated at 1:30 when the event officially starts. Lures will continue to be activated at random intervals on random Pokestops at the library until the event ends. At least one special lure will be activated during the event.

Anything else I need to know?

Free wi-fi is available at the library, but many people will be using it so the connection could be slow. Please bring your own device charger. Limited outlets are available for use in the Kellogg Room only. Please be respectful of other library patrons during the event—No Shouting, Please!

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

If you have questions, post them in the comments.

Your Club President Undertakes Some First-Class, Unlimited Musings

Semi-regular blog

I thought about calling this column Presidential Ramblings, but I was afraid it would bring to mind State of the Union addresses instead of reflections on all things Japanese and not Japanese.

Actually, First-Class, Unlimited Musings is a direct homage to the classic manga and anime series Oh My Goddess! that also inspired our club’s name. The title reflects my hope that my musings will be, if not first class, at least not lame. And of course, there is the unlimited number of topics I can, and probably will, cover. From basic anime reviews and club news to academic discussions of manga archetypes and Japanese culture, expect anything and everything from me.

I hope First-Class, Unlimited Musings will get not just you, our club members, to think, react, and comment. I also hope it will attract people from across the Inland Empire and the world to get involved and make our club’s virtual community a more interactive and exciting place to be.

Feel free to suggest some future topics. I don’t promise to listen, but if you inspire me, I just might take up the challenge. And remember, these are First-Class, Unlimited Musings, so I promise no lies and, though I can’t grant your heart’s desire, I will generally keep things clean and polite.

If you have no idea what that previous paragraph means, you need to read Oh My Goddess! That’s all for now. Check back regularly for more from me, your club president.
