We would like to invite you to rejoin us in 2019! We have launched a special opportunity open only to past members, where you can rejoin at our Renewal rate of just $11 until 28 February 2019.

Members like you are vital to the continued success of our non-profit club. Membership dues help support the child we sponsor through The Smith Family, as well as the costs of your annual dog tag, end-of-year member gift and associated postage. They also help cover our administrative costs (like lodging financial statements, insurance, bank fees, etc).

We are proud to share that with your support, our club has donated over $77,000 to charity to date! With your continued support we hope to add significantly to this figure in 2019 as we fundraise for FareShare, Fitted for Work, Women’s Information & Referral Exchange (WIRE) and Mothers Supporting Families in Need (MSFIN).

If you’d like to join us once more as a New Melbourne Browncoats Member, just send us message or email membership@newmelbournebrowncoats.com, and we will get you sorted. Once you are rejoined and paid up, your exclusive 2019 Members dog tag will be sent to you. If you need a new base set – NMB logo dog tag and chain – these can be provided for an extra $5.

Thank you for your support in the past and hopefully in the future, and we look forward to seeing you either in person or online in 2019!

We’ve just made our final charity donations for the year, and we’re thrilled to share that we have donated $14,227.00 in 2018! These funds were raised by your generous support of our events, Browncoat Booth, online store and memberships.

– FareShare ($5,500)

The battle of the Browncoat Brains is on! How good is your knowledge of Firefly facts? In this Members vs Regular Folks battle, test your memory (and research skills) to see how well you remember all things Firefly! We’ll be sticking to the first 3 episodes of the series for this quiz, so study up! You’ll have a week to submit your answers, and you’re welcome to apply all your skills to the challenge (including your ability to search online!).

Members of the New Melbourne Browncoats will have the chance to win a great prize for the top scorer – a Blue Sun Travel poster signed by Sean Maher! Make sure you include your name and location so we can match your entry against our Members Register.

The highest scoring Regular folk (non-member) will get bragging rights over everyone else.

You can use whatever resources you can scrounge up… watch the episodes and special features, listen to the commentaries, read the Visual Companion books, and scour the internet.

Submit your answers by 11:00PM on Friday 21 September 2018 (Australian Eastern Standard Time)

To enter, fill in the “Your Information” section, answer all the questions and then click the Done button to submit your entry!
