2007 Browncoat Ball
September 28-30, 2007
Registration Deadline: September 15th, 2007
The Inaugural Browncoat Ball (BCB) was held in Chicago in 2004, with the goal of establishing an affordable, annual, non-profit event created for fans by fans, capable of bringing Browncoats from geographically diverse locations from all over the world together to celebrate Firefly and our fabulous fandom. The vision for the Browncoat Ball is that it will be held in a different city each year.
The second Browncoat Ball was hosted by the San Francisco Browncoats, in 2006. It was a spectacular weekend-long event that drew in 150 browncoat attendees from across the United States, Canada and Australia.
For 2007, the Pennsylvania Browncoats, have stepped up to the challenge. This year, our destination will be Philadelphia. It is one of the oldest and most historically significant cities in the United States. Philadelphia was the center of the independence movement during the American Revolutionary War. The Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution were both written in Philadelphia, and signed in Independence Hall. So get ready to break out your fanciest duds, journey to the “Home of Liberty and Independents”, and once again rub elbows with Browncoats from all over the country (and beyond).
There are many types of conventions and get-togethers. Some revolve primarily around meeting celebrities, attending themed panels, getting early glimpses at industry projects, or browsing a dealer floor full of geek-related products. At many of these conventions, meeting and getting to know your fellow fans is a side note that occurs in small doses between events or while waiting in long lines. However, it is these interactions with our fellow fans that truly make these conventions memorable. The Browncoat Ball is the opposite of these conventions. Getting to know your fellow fans is the primary objective of the Browncoat Ball, and we strive for that with every activity, every ball, every year.
