ATTENTION ALL BROWNCOATS PLANNING ON ATTENDING FLAN!

We are all a little disconcerted by the update from Booster regarding the possible cancellation of Flan2. Many people have expressed concern at their un-cancelable reservations (airfare and hotel), and some are considering attending anyway.

With this in mind, the California Browncoats are willing to step up and make sure that those who choose to come out anyway, will have something to do when they get here. To do this successfully on such short notice we need to coordinate efforts, make sure there's someone who knows what's going on, and can coordinate efforts effectively, without a lot of duplication, mixed messages, or confusion.

If you are interested in helping, have already gathered information, or just want to know what's going on, please contact Adam Levermore-Rich (lexigeek on the boards) at adam.levermorerich@gmail.com so we can get an idea of what's happened already, we would greatly appreciate it.

Also, if you're planning on going come hellmouth or high water, please also let us know so we have an idea of how many people we need to plan for. Any information you have about your room reservations (number of rooms/number of nights) would also help us negotiate with the Hilton.

--

Update:

If you are planning on coming to Burbank for the back-up plan we (the California Browncoats) are currently working on in the event Flanvention is cancelled, please be sure to bring:

1. ID and,
2. The confirmation e-mail Booster Events sent you.

We want to make sure we give priority to those who have already spent money on tickets, but we don't have Booster's database of attedees, so we'll need some way to verify who's who.

--

Thank you for all your help! Please re-post this so we can start channeling all this stupendous energy into creating a positive experience for everyone.

Thank You
James

Dan, I am going to seperate your post to a seperate topic if that's okay, so people can alternatively plan and discuss the announcement in each.

1) The hotel reservations are cancellable. (Is that a word?)

My reservation is for the night of the 7th, and my confirmation states:
Should you need to cancel please contact us before 11:59 PM on 06 Dec 2006 local property time to avoid cancellation penalties.

I take this to mean that the reservations are cancellable at least up to 24 hours in advance.

2) Since this was to be my "mom's time off" vacation, and I skipped the Vegas Sindig to justify spending more money on Flan, I'm most likely still coming down and interested in doing what I can to make sure a replacement Shindig happens. I am mostly interested in meeting and hanging out with other Browncoats, so I'll have fun even if just a few others show up. But if we can make more of it, I'm all for that!

okay, so it's looking like Kathy Browncoat and I may be out there whether there is a flan or no flan -- so we'll have our shiny firefly-serenity merchandise in tow for sale-- probably out of our suitcases since there may be no dealer room. we're bringing so much stuff we may not have enough room to pack clothes to wear during the weekend!!

let's make this a happening whether BE is involved or not!!! True browncoat way of dealing with thing!! And lets hope we can all get refunds on our ticket prices and such....

we'll all be in the mood to really party after all this purplebelly mismanagement!!!!

BDH-Mike... does this mean I'll actually get to see you in person?!?!??!?!?

Hey, just post your room number and I bet people will stop by. Set up your shiny merch on the beds and let people shop.

I just want to say that I am down-right Proud of how all the Browncoats are dealing with this and Banding together. There's been some really tough times for us as a Fandom of late, and seeing this reaction makes me humbled and at the same time exceedly honored to be among your Number. We are indeed Mighty icon_smile.gif. TD/Tim

Morning, folks. Just wanted to give you an update on our plans to create an alternate fan experience in the event Flanvention II falls through.

First, we now have a name for this shindig. We're calling it the Browncoats' Backup Bash. We thought that kind of covered all the bases icon_smile.gif We've even set up a new e-mail address. If you have questions, you can e-mail us at backupbash@sfbrowncoats.com.

Second, plans are proceeding on making this as exciting an event as possible on such short notice. We're working out a schedule of potential events and activities as we speak. We are in touch with the hotel to try to work out meeting space, and as has been mentioned previously, they will honor the previously negotiated group rate for anyone who has a reservation. We've also talked with a bunch of the vendors who were planning to be there, and most have said they're interested in still attending even if Flan falls through.

Finally, we are working on contacting the actors to see if they'll be willing to attend as well. I can't stress this enough: we can't make any guarantees, especially at this late date, but you have our word that we will try our hardest to make it happen.

On the topic of contacting the Big Damn Heroes, I have a request. We have very good contact info for all the actors and other celebs, so please let us make these calls. The last thing any of us want is for the actors or Joss to get a ton of phone calls and e-mails and get so frustrated they just decide to back out.

Our main hope is that Booster comes through and Flan goes off without a hitch, making these preparations unnecessary. But if it does fall through, we hope everyone who had a ticket to Flan will consider still coming and enjoying the Browncoats' Backup Bash!

Any chance, in the event of Backup, and if nothing can be made to happen re: the cast, of doing fan commentaries like those posted on my (mostly dormant, but that's my fault) bigdamncommentaries.com site, except, you know, live?

Oh wow! Adam has me crying again! icon_razz.gif But this time out of happiness for that thing I like to call Browncoat Love! Wow, CaliCoats (and others helping them) you all are so wonderful! I'm not much help at the planning and I don't have a dime to spare, but I am strong and quite capable of manual labor, running around chasing people etc. So I'll definately find you all when I check in on Thursday.

Thank you everyone! Ok, gotta go back to work now and look normal. icon_biggrin.gif

A friend and I have a suite reserved for Sat Dec 9th. We're not giving it up and are still going to host our party whether the Con goes on as scheduled or not, so stop on by.

I've already made flyers for it and will hang them up on Sat to let peeps know the suite #.
