We are thrilled to announce our very special guest is… Vern Gillum, the accomplished television director who directed the Firefly episodes “Shindig” and “Trash.” !!! And here we are 10 years later still celebrating “Shindig” and Firefly at Browncoat Ball 2012 this weekend! Vern will graciously hold a Q&A session as part of Friday’s festivities and also speak Saturday after dinner about his experiences with Firefly and his friendship with Joss. So you may want to grab your favorite piece of Firefly memorabilia and bring it along to get it autographed by Vern! Can’t wait to get this party started! See you all very soon!
Events start on Friday with our welcome reception and Unification Day Renunciation Party (dress as your favorite character from the ‘Verse). If you are into leather (and who isn’t?) there will also be a special activity for everyone which will include a nice parting gift. A little something to make the folks back home even more jealous of your trip.
Saturday you can select from three different activity tracks (Jayne’s Leather, The Tram Job, and Battle of Acoma Valley), check out our Gallery of ‘Verse Collectables and Creations, and then proceed to the Ball in the evening. Sunday, play Tall Card and other games, and enjoy famous New Mexico breakfast burritos.
Home of the ancient Pueblo Browncoat rebellion against an overbearing Coquistador-Missionary Alliance, New Mexico is rich with big skies, natural wonders, history, art, culture, food and entertainment. The Albuquerque Browncoats have been active for seven years hosting regular shindigs, CSTS screenings, and more. We have a wonderful weekend in store, which should be una fiesta mas grande, as we say around here.
Be sure to join our social networks on Facebook and Twitter (coming soon) to be kept in the loop for news and updates.
We look forward to meeting all of you soon. The 2012 BCB is in less than a month! Buy your ticket today!
