2007 After Action Report

Wow, what a night! We had so much fun! 109 Browncoats in the house with 78 tix sold in advance.... A Big Thank you to all of you who came and also to those who helped in various ways that made this a success (posting on the web, helping out last night, donating items, making signs, etc)

Highlights:

  • Adam Hughes coming and donating 4 signed prints for the prize drawing, one of which was specially made for the screening! It created a mad dash to the prize drawing table to buy more tickets! This accounted for at least half of our prize drawing ticket sales!
  • At least 6 people came who had never seen Serenity
  • Lots of shiny prize drawing/door prizes!
  • Souvenir tickets for everyone
  • Plus hanging out with such a large group of very nice people

Some celebs in our 'verse were in attendance: Adam Hughes who did the cover art for graphic novel; and Rob Kuhlman who is one of the musicians for "Done the Impossible" movie!
