“2020… a plague ridden year for folks. We’re carrying some Pascaline D that we aim to return to them that need it. Now this country is big. From ocean to ocean it is mighty. We’ll start in Melbourne of old, but who knows where we’ll end…”

Join the Firefly crew to help them complete their mission, from anywhere in Australia and from the comfort of your home! Go solo or build a team of space scavengers. All you need is pen and paper, a tablet/smartphone with a camera, and a device with Zoom.

When: Sunday 27 September 2020, from 1pm-3pm

Where: Zoom – Meeting ID: 922 1459 6898 – Passcode: j5Xjj1

Cost: Completely free!

Important Note: Teams must be in a single household, and in accordance with local health directives and restrictions.

Join us online for our first virtual AGM!  We’ve gone almost entirely online this year, so now you can join in from anywhere in Australia from the comfort of your couch! The AGM is when you can have your say on the direction of our club, provide feedback to the committee on the past year and the years to come, and decide on the Committee for 2020/2021. The future of the New Melbourne Browncoats is in your hands, so we need everyone to get involved!

As our club is entirely organised by volunteers we need all of our members and supporters involved in the decision making and planning, as more hands on deck means more Firefly fun for everyone!

Wear your favourite Browncoat fan gear or cosplay, and grab your favourite Firefly/Serenity prop or fan item to share and show off!

When: Sunday 20 September 2020 – 12-1pm AEST
Where: Zoom – Meeting ID: 943 9645 4816 – Passcode: NMBAGM

As a band of volunteers, we’re always on the look out for people to give us a hand and share the load of keeping the New Melbourne Browncoats going strong. As we’re moving to doing a lot more of our meetings online, you can get involved regardless of your location. Volunteers are essential to keeping our ship running, and our current team need helpers to share the load. All current positions become vacant at the AGM, so you can nominate for any of the roles. You just need to be a current NMB member and be over 18 years old.

Members from all over Australia can join the committee – either as an Ordinary Member (which is a great way to get your feet wet) or an Executive position (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer). Distance is no obstacle, so get involved today!

If you can join the team and commit your time and energy, please nominate for one (or more) of the Committee roles! You can find details of each position here.  You can either fill out and scan the Nomination Form or you can just copy the text into an email, sending to sec@newmelbournebrowncoats.com. Nominations must be received by 11pm on 19 September 2020.

If you can’t attend, and still want to vote as a member, please complete a Proxy Assignment Form and email it to sec@newmelbournebrowncoats.com by 11pm on 19 September 2020.

Outgoing Committee:
 Chris MacLennan, Vice President: Sarah Brennan-Dunn, Secretary: Melissa Dwyer, Treasurer: Jen Cummings, Ordinary Members: Charlotte Sweeney
