Wow! What a convention we had. All supporting memberships have now been mailed - if you are in Canada or the US, you should have received them by now. International supporters should start receiving them in the coming week.
There are many more upcoming post-convention updates, including pictures, videos, convention reports, and charity donations.
For now, however, we'd like to announce a special opportunity. If you were at the convention, you had the opportunity to buy some awesome Due South merchandise for our guest vendor, as well as some just-as-awesome DVDs and CDs autographed by Paul Gross. We've picked up the remaining stock and are making available a special package through our online store. Note that all money raised through these sales will be added up to our charity auction total (nearly $5000), which will then be distributed to some very worthwhile causes. The cost of the package is $60, and it includes the following:
Note that sizes, colours, and specific DVD/CD titles are subject to availability and will be sold first-come, first-serve. Please read the item description in the online store for current availability. Pictures are attached below. Ordering is through our Online Store. When ordering, please include your choice of T-shirt size and colour, and choice of DVD or CD.
More to come! Thank you kindly!

With only 11 days to go until the convention, we just completed a test run of webcasting, and it's going to be super easy! If you've never used Bambuser, all you need to do is go to our webcasting channel:
You will then see a list of broadcasts, either live or saved. Click on the appropriate broadcast to view, and that's it! Every broadcast, live or saved, also features a chat room, so you can chat live with other Duesers and also leave comments after the fact! Note that you will need to be signed in, either with a Bambuser account or even more simply, through Facebook, to leave comments.
We recommend that you visit now and click on the green "Follow rcw139" button, as you can then register your e-mail address and receive a notification when a webcast goes live.
Oh - and for those not following our Facebook page, we had a last minute cancellation yesterday, therefore there is a spot open for a last minute attendee! If you're interested, e-mail us quickly at firstname.lastname@example.org!

Confirmation of attendance e-mails have been sent out! These include a few important coordinating instructions and reminders. Check your inbox, and then your junk mail folder. If you feel you should have received one but haven't, please e-mail email@example.com so we can check our records.
Also, if our webcasting announcement makes you want to get a supporting membership, we are still dealing with a very small number of cancellations which means we might perhaps have one. E-mail us quickly: firstname.lastname@example.org!
Finally, a little sneak preview of what's to come. Recognize this? It was taken just over a month ago during our run-through of the filming locations bus tour. If you're registered for it, it's going to be an amazing tour and we have a great tour guide on deck!

Good evening Duesers! We have a great announcement to make tonight, particularly for our awesome supporting members. But first, we want to remind everyone to submit their pictures for the "Saddle Up My Travelling Shoes" contest - there's still time, and we haven't received too many submissions yet. And it is open to all attending and supporting members. You can find all of the info here!
And now for our announcement. To thank our wonderful supporting members, for the first time ever, we will be webcasting RCW 139! Exact details will follow, but that means you will actually be able to watch, either live or through recordings, a number of RCW 139 events. Can't be there to see Jay Semko in person? Missing out our awesome Saturday afternoon group panel? Want to hear Lisa Jakub talk about why she stopped acting? You should be able to see all that and more through our webcast! We will be using the Bambuser platform, which also allows online users to chat and comment on live events. So if you're interested, make sure you keep checking this page and the website for details as we get closer to the convention.

Things are moving fast as we get closer to the convention! Today is another awesome day as we get to announce that Craig Williams, who was the prop master on the show for a good part of its run, will be our guest at RCW 139! Craig has extensive experience in Canada's film and television industry, and will undoubtedly have a very interesting perspective to share with us. We're excited to welcome him for his first RCW 139 convention!
