There's a basketball tournament coming up in Niigata. MAJET is looking to bring a team down. We'll probably be coming down on October 12th, a day before the games start, because of the long drive. Please email MAJET (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested. We especially need females to join (one must be on the floor at all times). Carpooling will be available and a first come first serve basis.
Check out the events facebook page for more info.
