A camera was left behind on one of the tables on Saturday. After announcing that we’d found the camera a few times no one stepped forward to claim it. We suspect the owner may have already left as the event was wrapping up and auctions were over.
The camera has been left with the Metro staff. The owner should contact the email@example.com – to make arrangements to pick up their camera. Be prepared to describe the camera (make/model) and perhaps some of the photos on it.

Can’t Stop The Serenity is a global series of screenings of the film Serenity, held to raise money and awareness for Equality Now, an international women’s rights advocacy group. Can’t Stop The Serenity events are held on (or around) June 23, which is writer / director Joss Whedon’s birthday, through the Serenity Release Anniversary, September 30.
Proceeds from the Edmonton event are divided between Equality Now, Kids Need to Read, and the Edmonton Youth Empowerment and Support Services (YESS) (formerly the Youth Emergency Shelter Society).
Advance ticket sales are now closed. Don’t fret, you can still get your ticket from the Garneau Theatre box office beginning at 11:45am on Saturday, June 23rd.
The CSTS 2012 Global design Tshirt and hoodies pre-sale is now closed in Edmonton. We happily sold a number of these items to our lovely supporters and fans of Firefly around the province of Alberta. We will have a very limited number of tshirts available for purchase at our CSTS event in Edmonton. First come, first serve.
Thank you to everyone who managed to get their pre-orders in by the deadline.
Marian Call – In concert – In conjunction with Happy Harbor Comics (10729 – 104 Avenue, Edmonton) we will be hosting a Marian Call concert on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 7:30 pm.
Alaskan singer-songwriter Marian Call is returning to Alberta. Her music has been described by fans as “funky acoustic joy jazz” — she plays eclectic, humorous and heartfelt songs that appeal to crowds of all ages and demographics. Her signature Underwood typewriter, rain stick, and kazoo can be heard in most of her local (and national) performances.
Marian is not being paid directly for her performance; we’re suggesting a donation of $10-$15 per person to show your appreciation of her talents.

As always, we’ll be hosting a costume contest as part of our event. Anything in the Whedonverse goes! Don’t have a Firefly costume ready? Consider coming as a character from Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse, Dr. Horrible, Cabin in the Woods or the Avengers! Or be creative and design your own Browncoat Avenger outfit to share with the crowds.
For the non-cosplaying attendees 2012 marks the return of the Evil Laugh contest. Practice makes perfect so feel free to randomly wander around your town laughing hysterically. Or maybe not. There’s always the privacy of your own home to hone your mwaaa-haa-haa…
