According to historical texts obtained via Netflix's Stranger Things, the Hawkins Middle AV Club was the audiovisual club at Hawkins Middle School. It was run under the supervision of science teacher Mr. Scott Clarke through the efforts of Bob Newby, who proposed the idea and had a fundraiser for all the equipment.
Besides being best friends, Mike, Dustin, Lucas, and Will were also the members of the Hawkins Middle AV Club. Later in November 1984, Max Joined the AV club along with the boys (as reported in Hawkins Yearbook). This is why, alongside practical purposes, they used the AV room to confer important but discreet discussions among themselves, such as the one regarding a supernatural issue with Will.
