Clock's ticking on the Browncoat Ball!

Do you have your ticket(s) for the Browncoat Ball on the weekend of October 4th-6th?  It is the biggest Browncoat event of the year that is held in a different city every year.  We were lucky enough to win the bid for 2013.  We have 132 Browncoats registered from all over the country and even one from London and about 20 spots still available for the Ball. We'd like to have our exact numbers by September 27th. That will give us time to make any last minute arrangements.  You can find further information at our website:

We are delighted to announce that Mikey Mason will be playing for us on 

Friday night.

We will also have Danu, a group of belly dancers, performing on Friday night.

We have worked hard at keeping the prices low.  Our weekend price is the lowest that it has been since 2004.  We do realize that it might still be a bit too expensive for some, so if you'd like to come see what it's all about, we can use some volunteers.  We can't comp people to the Ball, but we can have people come and help during parts of the weekend.  Here's some things that we could use help with:

Registration Table Friday between noon and 8 PM, and/or Saturday 9:00 to 11:30 AM, and/or Saturday 5:00 to 7:00 PM

 with gosling juggling on Friday 6 PM to midnight
Help with nerf guns on Friday 6 PM to midnight
Help with ASU astronomers setting up telescopes on Friday 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM
Play games like Apples to Apples on Friday night from 6:00 PM to midnight or Saturday 10 PM to 2:00 AM
Play (and watch) videos:  Avengers, Cabin in the Woods, Serenity, and/or Firefly episodes on Friday andSaturday 10:00 PM to 2:00 AM.
