Ok, one and all. This has actually started over on the 76th Independent Battallion message board, and I thought it was a good idea to post it here as well.

We're starting a postcard campaign requesting our BDH's as guests for this year's DragonCon (please be specific--I added Badger, YoSaffBridge, Niska and the sheriff (Gregg Henry) from The Train Job, 'cause he's hilarious). It did start out as email, but the D*C people have asked that all requests be sent via snail mail. If you're going to D*C, please join the crusade! Thank you...

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


What in the special hell is this thread doin' so far down on the page?!?

Back to the top w/ you!

Come on browncoats! NONE of our BDHs have been invited to Dragon Con yet. Not sure why, but it ain't important. We need to let the staff at Dragon Con know that the browncoats are still here, stronger than ever and with more fans in the ranks than last year. Let them know we want our cast and Joss at Dragon Con! Send those postcards!

This is a great idea! With our 76th marching and the opportunity that is D*C*, getting our BDH's there is a must.

C'mon folks, let's do this.


Sending mine today.

Just an FYI, I spoke to Adam at FX Con, he said he had a standing invitation to D*C and would be going barring any shoots that might come up. Christina on the other hand has NOT been invited! Let's get those postcards in the mail!

I aim to misbehave!

Read over on TVGuide online that Adam has been cast in yet another series for next year (at least he's still working ). Let's hope he's able to work around the shooting schedule this time!

OK... I have written and am posting my card from Melbourne, Australia!!

That's $1.20 postage for those of you who don't have a stamp handy - see what I do for my BDHs?

Now - for the $3,000 for the air fare...

This is my con. In fact, it is my only con. The way we filled that ballroom last year for Adam and Summer there is no reason to not have BDH's there.

Off to write and post the thread to my Browncoat Group!!!

You think you know--what's to come, what you are. You haven't even begun.


I'm pretty sure Nathan said on myspace that he would go if invited, but hadn't been invited yet. Might have been Jewel. One of them said it.
So... They just need to be invited!
What should I say? "Please invite Nathan Fillion, Summer Glau, Alan Tudyk, Jewel Staite, Sean Maher, Adam Baldwin, Morena Baccarin, and Ron Glass to your convention and make me the world's happiest con-goer"?

Something like that would work. Not too far off of how my postcards read. Course you left off Gina Torres.

I don't know if she has, and she probably won't be able to make this one, being a new mom & all (by then). But we can still ask!

This is who I asked for: ALL of the BDH's, Joss Whedon, Christina Hendricks, Mark Sheppard, Jonathan Woodward, Michael Fairman, Gregg Henry & James Gunn (the director of SLiTHER).

And I'll KEEP asking until at least one of them can make it!

Might want to add the Bedlam Bards to the request list. Every year they show up on their own dime to spread the love with us, perhaps we should let D*C know that they are professionals and should be treated as such.

Direct from Jewel's MySpace blog:

3. Any convention appearances I can list? Yes... I'll be doing Decalogy in Blackpool from the 1-3 of June with some girl named Morena, and I'll be doing Fedcon in Germany right after that. There are others in the works for later in the year but nothing quite confirmed.

Hope this means D*C!

One of the largest Sci-Fi/gaming conventions there is. Lots of comics, lots of gaming, lots of sci-fi guests, panels, photo-ops, events, all kinds of good times. Actors love it because it's a lot of fun, and the Browncoats have had shindigs there for years now. If you want to meet tons and tons of 'coats from this site, and possibly a few Big Damn Heroes, D*C is the place to do it.

Dragon*Con is held in Atlanta over Labor Day weekend. Right now they don't have any BDHs booked, so we're sending post cards to request them.

RIVERRUNSTHROUGHIT, I just noticed that you just signed on to FFF.net a couple of days ago. Welcome.

Thank you verseexplorer!

And thank you Phoenix! It sounds like a couple hundred tons of fun! And if I were actually able to make it there (which would be incredibly awesome) I'd prolly keel over and faint if I did meet any BDHs! Lol.

Does anyone know how much it is to go? And what I'd need to get? (i.e. airline tix, hotel, etc...)

RiverRunsThroughIt,
The cost for Dragon*Con membership is $60. The cost will go up to $70 on May 15, and up to $80 on July 13th.

The 3 host hotels are around $150 a night. There are overflow hotels that are cheaper.

You can check out the official Dragon*Con site. It has most all of the information that you'd need.

How about email? Would emails be more effective?

Maybe we should try a combo of email & postcards?

Emails are bad. The people at D*C requested that we use snail mail so as not to clog up their main means of communication.
