So, I know all of you have your curiosity piqued with what exactly will be going on at FilKONtario and the Bards Without Borders event. Here now is a run down of some of the things that are shaping up to make a very Brownish day at the con...
First off, Saturday April 5th is the day the good folks at FilKONtario will be letting the Independents invade. Although Cedric and Hawke will be partaking in all 3 days of the convention, Saturday is Browncoat-centric. We have a meeting room at the con from 10 in the morning until 1 in the afternoon Saturday. These three hours will be filled with Serenifly events and activities - many of which will feature the Bards themselves.
From 1 to 5 pm, the main hall will host 4 (yes I said four) concerts back to back (to back to back). The Bards regular show (if there is such a thing as a "regular" Bards' show!) will be one of the performances. Also on the line up are Bill Roper, Marilyn Miller and Michelle Dockrey and Tony Fabris.
After the concerts the Browncoats get to take over the ginormous con suite for 2 whole hours. We're planning on ordering in some pizza and hanging out and enjoying the cushy digs of the suite.
But wait! There's more! At 7 pm Saturday we can head back down to the main floor with 4 more hours of "programing" geared specifically for Browncoats. That totals 13 hours of Firefly related activity in one day- all for $25.00! (you could join the filkers at the con - and enjoy more time with the Bards - all three days of the convention for a mere $55.00)
April 5th is the main focus of the themed "Bards Without Borders" event and will include some fun and - I guarantee you- unique activities for the Flan that you are! I can not at this time release too many specifics, but I can hint that goslings *will* be juggled! There will also be a Firefly Theme Hypnosis Session (I kid you not!)
So, how can you resist? Check out the FilKONtario website and register yourself! http://www.filkontario.ca/ Print out the registration form and write "Browncoat Rate" on it and send the very nice people at FilKONtario your $25.00 for a whole days worth of fun in the 'Verse!
Until next time:
"It's the finest party I could imagine gettin' paid to go to."
