Then come back out into the main area to check out the awesome Silent Auction/ Jayne Hat Brigade PLUS donations, as well as purchase your chances to win some of the great raffle prizes.  You will automatically receive one chance for a door prize as you come in. About 1:00 ish  Your MC { Tracey/ Inara} will start talking and raving about how awesome this year’s Crew has been – and we will have some trivia questions for you to again have the chance to win stuff!! { Yay Sponsors!!}  And door prizes!!! Approximately 1:30-1:40 ish Royalty will descend and being judging your worthiness!  If you are coming in costume, be there by then! We will then again encourage you to return to the Silent Auctions { Jayne Hat Brigade PLUS donations} and donate more cash money to get more chances to win some of the raffle prizes!  And you are not limited in your Auction bids by the cash you have on hand as TAV Creations will be processing credit card transactions on behalf of the Ottawa Browncoats for uber awesome auction bids! So bring your Visa/ Mastercard! and then somewhere between 2 and 2:20 we will start the show by introducing the  Local FilmMakers trailers we have been sent and then on to the movie!
