The Charlotte Browncoats, in conjunction with the Greenville, Blue Ridge and Columbia Browncoats, are please to announce that Charlotte, North Carolina has been selected as the site for the 2010 Browncoat Ball. We've hit the ground running on this one and have plans for a fabulous weekend of fun, action, history, culture and hospitality, Southern Style.

Friday afternoon and evening activities will include classes of all sorts, a Wash-o-saurus Luau, Music From The Black and a Midnight Pajama Party. Saturday's big fun kicks off with a Train Job Luncheon, and your choice of three fun-filled activity tracks: the Thrilling Heroics Whitewater rafting Track, Hard Burn NASCAR Track or Tour The Core - Uptown Tour. The evening will culminate in the Ball, complete with dancing to live music and a fabulous shindiggy buffet (there may even be some kinda hot cheese thing.) Night owls can continue on to the after-hours party!

We'll be posting links to our still-in-progress site soon, so mark your calender now - October 22-24, for the 2010 Browncoat Ball. We aim to misbehave!

Reminder for the Lone Star Shindig Dec. 4th -6th

A Weekend at Southdown Abbey

Come visit Austin, Texas, December 4th-6th, 2009 as it is transformed
into Southdown Abbey on Persephone from the Firefly and Serenity

Join us as we celebrate Shepherd Book’s journey before becoming a crew
member on Serenity. We’ll start with an Abbey Fashion Show, showcasing
Asian-inspired designs, while offering Sereniteas’ blended teas, as
well as homemade hors d’oeuvres. We’ll have a costume picnic on the
Abbey grounds and then a dance in the Fellowship Hall with music by
The Bedlam Bards and food made primarily from produce grown at the
Abbey! We’ll end this shiny shindig with Serenity on the Big Screen at
our local Alamo Drafthouse Lake Creek.

The best part – all proceeds from this event will go to support The Al
Wooten Jr. Heritage Center of which Ron Glass, our Shepherd Book, is a
Board Member.
