With just over a week to go until the big day, here's what we have in store.
The event will officially start at 4, and we'll be located at the back of the The Mad Hatter. Please bring along your tickets if you bought a physical one, or remember your name if you bought it online. We have a dwindling amount of tickets to sell on the door, you can get in touch with me through the Facebook event page if you would like one.
Our silent auction and raffle tables will be open from 4 through to 7:30; each item in the silent auction will have a list of bids next to it, so anyone can come up and bid on said items throughout the afternoon. (Photos of a few of the items donated are below.)
We'll also be running a costume competition, which attendees can sign up to between 4 and 6:30, with several fantastic prizes available for the best costumes.
We'll be screening Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog at 5; singing-alonging is encouraged.
At 6, we'll be watching a few music videos from the Big Damn Heroes, an alt-country rock band who draw inspiration from the music of the 'verse. They have kindly donated several signed copies of their album, Browncoat Outlaws, to our silent auction.
At 7:15, we will stop accepting bids for items on the silent auction and cease selling raffle tickets, as we'll be getting ready for the main event: the screening of Serenity, which will begin at 7:30.
After Serenity has finished, we will be announcing our silent auction and raffle winners, and the evening will officially finish. Attendees are more than welcome to stick around afterwards, though this will put them in danger of being roped into taking down decorations/moving tables/resetting the room.
Do not feel you have to commit this blog post to memory, the schedule will also be available on the day, in both paper and organiser form.
If you have any questions about any of the above, my e-mail/Facebook inbox is always open.
See you in a week!
