When you think of the westerns, you think of Arizona. Geronimo, Jesse James, Wyatt Earp, Tombstone, and John Wayne became a part of history right here in the land of copper. It is here we invite you to join us in October for  the ninth official Browncoat Ball!

The Browncoat Ball is the social event of the season. It gathers Browncoats from all over the world to celebrate who we are as a community. Inspired by an episode of the 2002 television series, Firefly, the ball invites Firefly fans, known as “Browncoats,” to dress in their finest to dine, dance, and d… socialize (so much for alliteration). A cocktail party on Friday night sets off the weekend, followed by “away team” field trips around the city on Saturday, and then the ball itself Saturday night. It’s a traditional ball complete with a caller announcing the guests, beautiful women and dapper men, the finest security this side of Persephone, and a buffet table to interrogate to your heart’s content.

Ready to sign up? Great! Registration is ready on the Tickets page! While you’re at it, you can join the Google+ or Facebook events and informally rsvp that way. We also have a twitter, @bcball2013. We’ll have plenty of ways for you to follow along with our planning antics and give you the latest news, but for now get your Firefly-style frilly (or slinky, we’ll allow slink) dresses and suits ready and we’ll see you in fall of 2013!
