Messages from our very own, Captain Dave (the new CSTS GLOBAL DIRECTOR!!):

I don't know if many of you visit www.cantstoptheserenity.com and see all the events like ours around the world. You can also see how much each event contributes. Norfolk does middling well although we have higher attendance than most. This is because we don't charge very much, don't seek outside sponsors and don't have fund-raisers within a fundraiser like silent auctions. That's just how we are. We can auction off stuff or we can listen to Mikey Mason. I vote for Mikey. So the only way to increase our charitable contribution is to increase attendance. Please bring your friends, heck, bring your enemies and casual acquaintances. You can even bring that guy who smells like poo. We can all be heroes in our own way.

If you don't mind, please share this event with your geek pals. Also, we changed the date to April for several reasons. We wanted to make it easier for the Peninsula folks to make it down without fighting the Outer Banks weekend traffic, there are fewer competing festivals and most of all we'd like to attract all the college students before they left. So if you know a student at the local colleges and universities please let them know about our show.


And now… for your listening pleasure…
