THE 6TH ANNUAL BROWNCOATS BACKWOODS BASH

Saturday, September 21, 2013.


11:00am until 9:00pm.


The waterfall Shelter at Lower Cascades Park, Bloomington Indiana.


"Time For Some Thrillin' Heroics!"

This year's Bash will feature Fan-made films, and our usual lineup of fun activities. We're hoping to have as many people as possible in the Costume Contest this year, and we'd like to get a group photo of as many people in Jayne hats as we possibly can. You can probably guess why! *evil grin*.

As always, the 'Bash is a FREE pitch-in picnic for fans of Firefly/Serenity and all things Joss Whedon. The swag table and silent auction items will, as always, reflect that. The proceeds will once again go to Middleway House of Bloomington, the local Women's Shelter. They love us... we've contributed over $3000 in the past 5 years, and will hopefully keep the streak going.

Please rsvp and mention on this Thread any food items you're planning to bring.
If you have a swag item to donate to the cause, please let us know, and let us know if you're bringing it or if you'd like to send us something.

If you can't attend, but know someone who would like to, please pass the word!

More details and teasers to come.

Questions??? call me! 812 272 6153

3:30- 5pm:
Game time! Bingo (aka "Shiny") in the main room, and the Serenity RPG either outside or in the little wellhouse next to the shelter for those who like that. Bob Turner always brings badminton for the younger crowd. If not, there's volleyball and the playground.

Yeah, Dawn is 28 months now. Runs and plays, learning two languages, English and Visayan (thanks to her Mom). She loves to dance ad sing. She has the melody for the Firefly theme down cold. She just needs to work on the words lol.

We have so much swag this year I am actually worried. We may have more swag than guests, which means if you come you might snag some excellent bargains. :D

Well this sounds like fun! We're up in IL, so it would be about 5 hours for us, but might just try to make it! Glad I looked at this post for sure.

Hi, TD !

We were at Spring Mill a couple of years back and are looking forward to being at the Bash again this year. I'll be coming with my wife, son and his girlfriend. We'll have at least one Jayne hat along for the ride...

Sandy's going to whip up some cranberry-orange cole slaw, and the kids are bringing some kind of bar cookie dessert.

Are there any restrictions on bringing pets there ? We've got a Yorkie with a "brown coat" that would enjoy a day in the park, if that won't get in the way, or be against park rules.

I remember a ton of good swag at that Spring Mill bash, so I'm anxious to see what you've got this year ! I assume profits are going to the same good cause, so hopefully we'll pick up something(s) shiny...

See you there !

Fantastic! Looking forward to seeing you. Lower Cascades is a City Park, so no admission, but you do need to have your dog on a leash (technically). The swag this year is amazing if you're on facebook, check out "6th Annual Browncoats Backwoods bash", and look for posts about the treasure... :D

I had TWO variations of my Annual nightmare last night....

First, I dreamed that only one person showed up at the Bash (I'm looking at You, James Robert Turner? ). Our $1500+ Inventory of swag made $30 for Middleway House .

Secondly, I dreamed that NO ONE showed up, and we force-Fed Dawn~Marie 100 all-beef Hot Dogs!

Please do not deprive MwH of our Contributions. PLEASE do not give my two year old daughter indigestion. Please DO say that you are coming to the Browncoats Backwoods Bash!

Thank You.

That's kinda funny, I threw a party the other day and had a nightmare about a yellow piece a paper the next night and couldn't figure out why....I found the bill for the rental spot today...On a yellow piece of paper!



I know you are doing this for a great cause and all but you ain't gotta drive yourself mushy in the brainpan doing it... I don't think anyone would blame you if you didn't want to do it anymore, TD...
It's an awesome thing ya do, though. Not sure I could. I've now thrown exactly two parties, and have decided I'M DONE WITH THAT, PERMANENTLY.
It IS awful hard to get people to do anything in this state.......


BTW, I tried to find what the swag was on FB, and I couldn't find it, but then I'm pretty sure one of their servers gets a migraine when I log on anyway :P

There is a mention of the swag in the FB page's discussion thread. We've got a few fan made tee shirts, QMx macquettes, artwork (Which includes some rare stuff from QMx artists and designers), plus books, videos and misc stuff. We're hoping to have autographed copies of Browncoats: Redemption and the rare "Ruins of Du Khang". Still awaiting confirmation on that....

Firefly Cargo Bay has contacted me, and we hope to be receiving some buttons and other sundries as "Shiny" prizes. Shiny is our version of "Bingo". :D

Some of the swag this year has me really excited. A lot of Artwork, some by designers of the original ship. QMx Macquettes, some of which are "no longer available" on their site. I'm awaiting the arrival of autographed copies of "Ruins of Du Khang" and "Browncoats: Redemption". All the proceeds from the items will go to the local Women's shelter...

Face it: You NEED to attend! :D
