After Firefly was cancelled and taken off the air, the fans of the show were excited to hear that a movie, Serenity, was going to be released in 2005. In anticipation of the movie, the Chicagoland Browncoats wanted to unite the fandom. Taking a cue from the Firefly episode "Shindig," they began organizing a large, gala-like event. They invited Browncoats from around the world to come and join them. Thus, the Browncoat Ball was born.
The Browncoat Ball is a weekend-long social event that is held in the fall, usually around September or October. Browncoats from all over fly into the hosting city, a different locale every year. Some fans come in early or stay a few days after to see the extra sites each host city has to offer.
Due to editing errors, our original flyers for Tucson's CSTS had the incorrect start time.

It's that time of year again for a meeting. Join in below on the Coveritlive liveblog for the official records, and for more smooth conversation (experimental, so don't get mad if something goes unexpected) you can join us on the Google Hangout. It is primarily a video chat, but audio is fine, and even if you have neither there is a chat room there. There is a limit however of 10, but our last 2 attempts only had three people so I don't anticipate an issue. We will attempt to adapt depending on whatever comes up.
Hey everybody! (Hey what?)
Samurai has a thing this Saturday, so we're trying something a little different for September's shindig. We're going to California Pizza Kitchen. Good food, good folks, good [other cliche gathering words]! Come on by and join us.
If you can't afford food, come anyway. I bet we can work something out. (Within reason obviously).
PLEASE RSVP to email@example.com to reserve a seat at the table. If you can't make it, no worries, we'll see you next month!
