CSTS Vancouver 2011 is Saturday, June 25th!!

We are officially registered as a CSTS participant and can now leap ahead with our planning!  CSTS Vancouver 2011 will be held at the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre, 1100 Chestnut Street, Vancouver,  BC, on June 25th from 11 am to 6 pm, with the doors opening at 10:30.  The day will include a sing-along to Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, a costume contest, an Evil Laugh contest, Whedon trivia bingo, episodes from some locally produced web series, a silent auction and - oh yes, the Big Damn Movie, Serenity!

Tickets will be on sale soon.  Keep checking this page for a look at this year's art contest winner - another Canadian, organiser of the Toronto 2011 CSTS - for news on ordering t-shirts and for a look at some of the items we have for the silent auction and prizes.

If you would like to be involved in this year's event, as a donor, sponsor or volunteer, you can contact us by e-mail at CSTSVancouver@gmail.com.  We are especially interested in unique items - well-crafted geeky things always go well.  Take a look through the archives to see what kind of objects we have had in the past.

We had our best year ever in 2010, raising a total of $4,436.56, which meant $3,550 (rounded up) to Equality Now and $900 (also rounded up) to BC Women's Hospital and Health Centre Foundation.  We received lovely thank you notes from both.

Before we get to CSTS 2011 (planning has already started!), I would like to thank all of our generous sponsors, especially The Comic Shop, Happy Bats Cinema and Serena's Everything Jayne's Hat Emporium for donating each of our five years.  We hope those relationships will continue in the coming years.  Please continue to support our sponsors as they support us.  I'd also like to thank all the volunteers on the organising committee, those who helped out throughout the day, those who contributed prizes or items for the silent auction.  This fundraising event could not continue without you and would not have been possible in the first place without the support of Serena Reynolds, Organiser of the BC Browncoats.

Coming soon: Date and time for CSTS Vancouver 2011, the winning artwork and more.  If you would like to be involved in any way, please e-mail us at CSTSVancouver@gmail.com.  (Hope you like the new look.)
