Firefly - Mal WTF?
Just heard from a friend that the Saturday-night Shindig (Whedonverse track) got scrubbed this year!!! Someone please tell me this is just an unsubstantiated rumour, and if it is not, somebody please tell me where I can reach the organisers and let 'em have it!!!!

As the SEBC organizer that has done all of the Shindigs basically by myself, though last year we had the awesome support of Browncoats: Redemption, and paying for it out of my own pocket with little or no help (and most times passive hindrance) from D*C, yeah, I needed a break. I was also told that there was a strong possibility that the Whedonverse track would be pursuing a different theme party this year. With that information and our incredible run, we figured it was a good time for me to step aside and let another portion of the Whedonverse fandom have the glory.

I am disappointed that no other party materialized, but that's D*C. There's never enough time, money, or people to do everything we want to do and Wayne does his absolute best to try and please everyone every year.

As for myself, come Saturday night at the con, I'll be sitting in the Marriott bar, having a drink, enjoying the sights, and making my own Shindig. Everyone is welcome to join me, Browncoat or not. And hey, there won't be a long ass line to stand in.

Drinks ahoy!

Provided Ben doesn't have work to do that night (riiight), we'll be joining you. ;-)
