Saddle up your travelling shoes. 2019 will mark the 25th anniversary of Due South, and five years since RCW 139: Thank You Kindly, an incredible event that drew over 100 people from nine countries to Toronto. We think it's time to get together again. We're therefore very excited to announce the RCW 139 Reunion Event, which will take place in August 2019, in Toronto, of course!
If you're a veteran of RCW 139 conventions, this will be different than what you've been used to. This will be looser, more organic. We're not calling it a convention, we're calling it a reunion. And we're not going back to the Marriott - or to any one place in particular. So what can you expect? Some favourites will more than likely return, such as a visit to the Distillery District or breakfast at the Patrician Grill. Perhaps a walking tour of filming locations. Dinners with friends. We have a number of other ideas, but in the end, it will be what YOU want to do. Maybe a few of our favourite Due South cast and crew will even join us for some events? Our focus is on bringing together people who like Due South. The rest... will be up to all of us. Much more info to come in the next few months!
The RCW 139 Reunion Event is coming soon. Mark your calendars for a trip to Toronto in August 2019.

At this time last year, RCW week was starting! Can you believe it has been a year since RCW 139: Thank You Kindly, the world's biggest Due South event since the 1990s? It feels like just yesterday that we were busy preparing for the convention. What were YOU doing at this time a year ago?
We'll publish a retrospective throughout the week, but to start, we'd like your help! Check out our Facebook page and tell us:
1. What first comes to mind when you think about RCW 139?
2. What is your favourite memory from RCW 139: Thank You Kindly?
3. And if you've attended more than one RCW 139, which one did you like best and why?

Hello Duesers! Just a reminder that our wonderful 2014 convention guest Lisa Jakub recently released her highly anticipated autobiography "You Look Like That Girl..." You may remember her reading from it on the Sunday morning of the convention. For more info and links to order, you can visit http://youlooklikethatgirl.com/ .Thank you kindly!

Hello Duesers! On this last day of February, we're happy to report that we recently completed the last of our charity donations from the money raised at RCW 139 and the sales of "Thank You Kindly!" packages. $1500 was donated to Canada Company, a charitable, non-partisan organization that serves to build the bridge between business and community leaders and the Canadian Military. The charity was chosen at the request of Paul Gross' family, who donated the autographed CDs and DVDs that were the central piece of the TYK! packages and which were also sold at RCW 139.
We received a great thank you letter from the Founder and Chairman of Canada Company, indicating that the money will have a direct impact on many of its programs - in particular on the Military Employment Transition initiative, which helps support Veterans transitioning from military to civilian life. We also want to point out that Canada Company provided invaluable support for Paul Gross's new movie, Hyena Road.
This brings to a close all activities associated with RCW 139: Thank You Kindly. In total, we were able to donate an amazing $6500 to three extremely worthwhile causes this year - and just over $17,000 in four conventions since 2008!
