Browncoats' Backup Bash (a.k.a. Flanvention II contingency plan)

Morning, folks. Just wanted to give you an update on our plans to create an alternate fan experience in the event Flanvention II falls through.

First, we now have a name for this shindig. We're calling it the Browncoats' Backup Bash. We thought that kind of covered all the bases:) We've even set up a new e-mail address. If you have questions, you can e-mail us at backupbash@sfbrowncoats.com.

Second, plans are proceeding on making this as exciting an event as possible on such short notice. We're working out a schedule of potential events and activities as we speak. We are in touch with the hotel to try to work out meeting space, and as has been mentioned previously, they will honor the previously negotiated group rate for anyone who has a reservation. We've also talked with a bunch of the vendors who were planning to be there, and most have said they're interested in still attending even if Flan falls through.

Finally, we are working on contacting the actors to see if they'll be willing to attend as well. I can't stress this enough: we can't make any guarantees, especially at this late date, but you have our word that we will try our hardest to make it happen.

On the topic of contacting the Big Damn Heroes, I have a request. We have very good contact info for all the actors and other celebs, so please let us make these calls. The last thing any of us want is for the actors or Joss to get a ton of phone calls and e-mails and get so frustrated they just decide to back out.

Our main hope is that Booster comes through and Flan goes off without a hitch, making these preparations unnecessary. But if it does fall through, we hope everyone who had a ticket to Flan will consider still coming and enjoying the Browncoats' Backup Bash!

Firefly Actor in a Bones Rerun.

I know it's a repeat, but if people have never seen it, our very own Hero of Canton was in an episode of "Bones" last season called "Two Bodies in the Lab." It reairs tonight on FOX at 9pm after the new episode (which airs at 8). So, if you want to see Jayne in a totally different light, it's a fun catch, and he has a very interesting character. :)
