More guests! I don't think we've ever had so many guests interested in attending RCW 139. This week, we're pleased to announced that three... uhm, criminals from Due South have expressed their interest in being our guests this summer: Jim Bracchitta (Frankie Zuko), Christina Cox (Caroline Morgan), and Kevin Rushton (variety of roles and stuntperson). As always, their appearances are subject to their availability and schedule.


So what are you waiting for? Attending and supporting memberships are available through our Online Store!

Happy Valentine's Day, Duesers! So what will RCW 139: You Must Remember This be like? Well, for one thing, you can be sure that it's going to be just as much fun as the 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2014 conventions! Like the prior events, we won't be able to tell you the final schedule until just a few days before the event - mainly so that we can accommodate the busy and often-changing schedule of our guests. And sometimes, the schedule changes the night before the start of RCW 139 (like in 2010, when we got confirmation that Paul Gross would be coming!) or even after the start of the event (like in 2012, when Daniel Kash came for an unexpected visit!


However, here is what we can tell you:


  • On the Thursday evening, for early arrivals, we'll likely go back to the Distillery District for a visit of numerous Due South filming locations and a little dinner between friends. Hopefully the weather will be more like 2010 and less like 2014!

  • Friday will be the official opening of RCW 139, with registration and the distribution of Goodie Bags in the morning. And of course, the opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones! Friday afternoon will include events such as group episode viewing, Kitkat tasting, and the Due South Carnival - an event which in 2014 was described as "ridiculously fun"! Friday evening? Perhaps a guest panel or two!

  • On Saturday morning, we're hoping to step out of the hotel. Breakfast at the Patrician Grill is a guarantee, as long as they are open, of course. And maybe we'll do a tour of filming locations? Saturday afternoon is always a good time for a guest panel or maybe another event outside of the hotel. And Saturday night will be the ninth RCW 139 gala dinner. Yummy food, buffet style, and surely a surprise or two before the fifth RCW 139 group picture.

  • Sunday will only come too quickly. Perhaps that's when we'll play Due South! Jeopardy IV, with prizes for the winning team? No doubt we'll also have another guest panel, perhaps a charity auction yet again if we can get enough donated items, and many more activities.

Our potential guest lineup is looking amazing, and the many activities are just so much fun. And what an opportunity to get together again and to meet new friends. So don't wait - there's only one day left to get an attending membership at a discounted rate!




7 February 2019


Hello Due South fans! It's a great Thursday. There's one week left to get your attending membership at a reduced price, and we have a fantastic guest announcement to make: not one, not two, but three Due South crew members who have never attended RCW 139 are interested in being our guests this July - subject, as always, to their availability and work schedules.


First, Chris Moulson, who was a Location Production Assistant during Season One and the 2nd Unit Assistant Location Manager on Season Two. Chris knows all about filming locations, and almost joined us in 2014 for the bus tour.


Second, Bob Wertheimer, who was a Producer for Season Two. Bob worked on episodes that many remember as favourites such as North and All The Queen's Horses.


And third, Debi Drennan, whom I think we can safely call a legend when it comes to makeup artistry and makeup design in the world of Canadian television and film. Her work ranges from The Littlest Hobo to Murdoch Mysteries, and of course, all seasons of Due South.


Excited yet?




3 February 2019


We have our first update on guests, and it's a great one: we're happy to let you know that Catherine Bruhier, Tom Melissis, and Daniel Kash have all indicated they are interested in attending, subject to their schedule and work commitments! We'll keep an updated status on guests for 2019 on our Guest List page!


Also a reminder for everyone that you have less than two weeks to register for RCW 139 at a reduced price. After 15 February, the cost of an attending membership will go up by $50. Head over quickly to the Online Store to register!

RCW 139: TYK recap


Read what RCW 139: Thank You Kindly was all about. Thanks Lynne!


A Dueser's story from 2014


What is RCW 139?


Named after a recurring license plate seen on Due South, RCW 139 is a convention organized by fans of the show for fans of the show. The first RCW 139 convention was held in 1996. Seven more conventions have been held since then, the latest in 2014, called RCW 139: Thank You Kindly. For many years, RCW 139 has been the world's only Due South convention!


What makes RCW 139 so special is that is as much (if not more!) about people as it is about Due South. Every convention is different. Countless friendships have been made and renewed through RCW 139 - friendships that last a lifetime. Due South brings us together, but it doesn't take long to find that we have so much more in common than just our love for a TV show.


If you've never been, we think you'll find it hard to believe just how many close friends attendees make over three days (or more!):



And if you've been before, then you already know it's not to be missed!
