The Charlotte Browncoats Cordially Invite You to the Browncoat Ball

As we reach the middle of the Can’t Stop the Serenity season and begin to slide gently into the fall, we start thinking of the other big event on the Browncoat calendar.  I speak, of course, of the Browncoat Ball.  The Browncoat Ball gives Browncoats from all over the globe a chance to gather together and turn our gaze inward and celebrate our fandom. We also are afforded a wonderful opportunity to visit the home cities of our fellow Browncoats and see what makes them who they are. This year the Ball will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, from October 22nd through the 24th.  The Charlotte Browncoats have pulled out all the stops, offering three different tracks to attendees.  There’s the Core Tour, which is perfect for history buffs.  Folk who take the Core Tour will get to see some of Charlotte’s historic sites and ride a trolley through the city.  If you’re the sort who’s attracted to a bit more danger, the Thrilling Heroics track is for you.  Take a chance on a zipline, or go rappelling down a 46-foot spire at the U.S. National Whitewater Center.  Finally there is the Hard Burn track, where those with a taste for speed can visit the NASCAR Hall of Fame Museum and learn about all the drivers that have made NASCAR famous.  All the exciting entertainment is of course capped off by the main Shindig, the Browncoat Ball, which starts at 8PM on Saturday, the 23rd. We here at the Can’t Stop the Serenity Global Committee hope you will take this opportunity to see a new part of the United States, make some new Browncoat friends, and head to Charlotte for the social ev
