NMB Members, it’s time to put your brain to the test and compete against other New Melbourne Browncoats Members to win our first Members Only Online Trivia Competition! So check your inbox for our email to get started!

We’ve put together ten challenging questions that should test even the most dedicated Firefly and Serenity fan, and one Browncoat Brainiac will win a Blue Sun Travel “Beaumonde” retro style tourism poster signed by Sean Maher (valued at $70)! It won’t be easy! You may even have to delve into the episodes and a commentary or two (any excuse to watch some Firefly and Serenity!!). You can use whatever resources you can pull together, but shhh… don’t share your knowledge with other Members or they may win instead!

Members have until 11pm on March 18 to answer all ten questions, so make sure you hit Submit before the clock runs out to be in with a chance to win. The member with the highest score will be the winner, or if there are equal high scores, the winner will be drawn randomly from highest scorers.

So dig out your DVDs, Blurays or digital copies of Firefly and Serenity, and whatever other sources of information you can put your hands on, and get to it!

If you haven’t received the email, please contact our Membership Officer at membership@newmelbournebrowncoats.com and make sure your email address is up to date.

In honour of International Women’s Day, we’re launching a fundraiser for WIRE (wire.org.au)!
