I regret to inform you that due to extraordinary circumstances, the Chicagoland Browncoats will not be holding Can’t Stop the Serenity for the first time in 9 years. We are almost as sad and disappointed as when Firefly got cancelled.
We have really struggled to find a suitable venue this year that meets all our needs, while still keeping our ticket prices reasonable. Also, while we love our event volunteers, we simply need more people willing to put in time and effort in the months leading up to the event.
Make sure to also join our Meet-up Group, which meets the first Monday of every month at the Mystic Celt in Chicago.

Looking for volunteers
It's that time of year once again to start planning Can't Stop the Serenity for Chicago.
This year, we are at risk of not having the event at all. We might need to find a new location for the event, and we need some new crew members to help us run the event. If we can not get enough people to help us run the event this year, we will not be able to have it.
Our first meeting will be held during Capricon, Sunday, February 10 at 10am in the Westin Chicago North Shore, Wheeling IL, in the lobby. Please note you do not have to attend Capricon to attend our meeting. We will discuss roles and the challenges we face for this coming year.
We are looking for volunteers for the following positions:
Captain of Marketing - Help get more people to attend
Captain of Donations - Solicit donations from local businesses
Captain of Event Programming - Help us figure out what we will do, the day of the event
We will also need many boots on the ground to help each captain and help us run the event the day of the show. However, if we can not get anyone to volunteer for a Captain position, we will not host the event this year. So if you are interested, even if you have never done this before, please volunteer and we will help and support you!
Thanks to all of you!
