Date: Saturday, September 18, 2010
Time: 11:00am - 6:00pm
Location: SpringMill State Park, SR60, Mitchell Indiana


THIS YEAR IS GOING TO BE VERY, VERY SPECIAL!!
For those who have been waiting to hear it, YES! There will be a Third Annual Browncoats Backwoods Bash. It will be held on Saturday, September 18th, from 11am-??. The location will be the Butternut Shelter at SpringMill State Park, just south of Mitchell, IN on SR60. The shelter is just a few hundred yards from The Pioneer Village, which will have an exhibit of old-timey crafts and lots of 19th century style music and dance. Admission to the Park is $5 per carload, but the Bash is, of course, FREE!
The local charity we benefit is Middleway House in Bloomington. They’re a Shelter for and Counseling Center for abused women and children; a very worthwhile cause. lat year we rasied almost $400 and we hope to surpass that figure this year.

For those not in the know, The Browncoats Backwoods Bash is a Charity Pitch-in Picnic, featuring fun activities for Firefly and Serenity Fans. Every year, we feature "Good Dogs", "some kind of hot cheese", Apple Slices (grenades cost extra), and other tasty treats provided by those attending.... YOU, in other words! We also feature swag to purchase (with the proceeds going to charity), Firefly and Serenity-related videos to watch, and the sheer fun and cameraderie of sharing our love for the Sereniverse. THIS year, however, will have some exciting new events:

1.David Dent and Heather Ackroyd, from Annapolis MD have cleared it with Producer/Director Mike Dougherty, and they will be bringing a DVD of BROWNCOATS: REDEMPTION for us to watch!

2.Dave and Heather made a video Q&A with Mike Dougherty, the director, just for us. I have been assured that Mike will be providing us with copies of the film for purchase, and we have have other goodies as well.

3.This year is the Fifth Birthday of the BigDamnMovie, so we WILL be watching Serenity this year as well. Sereniversary has always been about grass-roots, local Charities, so I hope those who attend will be extra generous this year.

So, there you have it: This year looks to be bigger and better than ever. The only thing missing is YOU, and every Browncoat you can send a Wave to about this. We hope to see you there, and please don't forget to Spread The Word!!


TENATIVE SCHEDULE OF EVENTS, SUBJECT TO FLEXIBILITY

10am-11am, Arrival and setup of swag and food. Cooking of the "good dogs" will begin ASAP.

11-11:30am, Meet and Greet, and the beginning of the Good Eats :D

Noon-2pm The BDM will be shown during the meal. Other activities at this time? Swag Table will be available, and I will have an exhibit of Sereniverse collectibles, including actual props from the Film and Series for folks to look at.

2-2:30pm, Costume Contest, with fabulous (read, inexpensive) prizes for the best Costumes. Swag table still open, probably until we all decide to leave lol.

2:30-4pm, Open time. Feel free to gather up a tour group to see the Pioneer Village and experience period costumes and music. If that's not your thing, stick around for Serenifly trivia from the "Done the Impossible" DVD, or enjoy the playground which is less than 75 feet away. If I can get volunteers, we'll play a game called "Gorram Shiny", a variation on "Hip-hip Hooray".

4pm-6:30-ish, "Browncoats:Redemption" will be shown, with Mike Dougherty's Q&A, if it gets made [IT WILL]. We are still accepting Questions for this interview.

After that, it's anyone's guess, but we could always use a hand getting all the goods back aboard the Midbulk Transports. Any and all help appreciated! :D

We've gotten some recent press! The 'Bash was mentioned in The Signal podcast a few weeks back, and Michael Daugherty (Director of "Redemption") Mentioned us in an interview awhile back.

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


Sounds like it's going to be a mighty fine shindig. Wish I could make it.

It just seems to get better every year, BC1

And TVC was right, no RSVP required. Just remember it's a pitch-in picnic. We provide the good dogs, condiments, paper plates and such. You supply chips, Bao, strawberries, whatever you wish. Good eats, good company, good times.... and for a good cause, too.

The dreaded double post, so I'll put it to good use.

I picked up about 50 fliers from our charity, Middleway House, and will have them (along with donation envelopes) at the Bash. That way, folks can donate on their own, when they want to.

I'm looking forward to seeing many new faces this year.

Hi, um, TD?

I'm wondering if you received my message the other day? When I sent it it said it wasn't able to be delivered, but sometimes those go through anyhow so...?

It asked if there was any room left on board for your shindig, and that My other half was part of a FF role-playing group so I'm trying to convince them to come, too.

Just wondering...

Oh, and we love the motto!

HI, WishImay. No, I didn't receive your msg, but YES, of course you're welcome to attend! Invite all your BC friends, and all possible recruits to the 'Verse. Just keep in mind that it's a pitch-in picnic. We have hamburgers and hot dogs, but will be limited on sides, drinks, snacks and desserts. So any goodies you can bring will be a help. No one has said anything about bringing the strawberries... yet.

If you have any questions, just ask 'em here on the thread.

Yea, we planned on bringin' grub...I have a can of Chinese lychees (but I'm probably the only one addicted to those!) Will be sure to bring sodas, and if the others come they are good cooks as well. We had our own Little Shindig on Chinese New Year and had a great time. I'm sure strawberries will find their way to the buffet somehow...

mmmmmmmmmmmmmm... I love lychees, even the canned ones! They're smaller than but similar in taste to Philippine Rambutan (My wife is a Philipina).

Looking forward to meeting you and your friends!

If you or anyone else reading this has any questions, call me between 3pm and 9pm EST. My # is 812 272 6153.

Tomorrow!!!

The past 2 years, I've worried that no one would attend. THIS year, I'm worried we won't have enough Burgers and "good dogs" to go around!

An advance thank you to all who will bw attending

Hi TD!

Just wanted to say thanks again for a great day!
All of us had a great time. Don't think we were too short on the supply of strawberries ;)
I realize the t-shirt was a tad effeminate, but figured you could redirect it as you saw fit.
As we pulled off my kid was saying "I can't wait until the next one!" She's worn out, and thanks for that...

Did we get an offical head count?

Thank YOU for coming! Based on the sign-in sheet (which I'm not sure everyone signed) we had a turn-out of 47 people. That's over twice as many as last year, and we raised almost 3 times as much for Charity than last year! We have over $700, all of which will go to Middleway House this coming week.

Dave and Heather also got a fair amount of cashy money for the BC Redemption Charities. They told me how much but I forgot.

Anyway, it was a most Shiny time, and I'm looking forward to seeing you next year!
