A "small" guest update today: we're very happy to announce that both Paul Gross and David Marciano are interested in attending RCW 139! We all have our fingers crossed that they will both be able to fit it within their schedules in August! Excited yet???

Just a quick note - we are now 91% sold out. There's a whole NINE attending memberships left, so if you're hoping to attend the convention... you might want to put down your deposit very soon!
We need some more feedback regarding the bus tour. The problem is that we have too many events... and too little time. The optimal timing for the bus tour is the Saturday morning, but that's also when we're hoping to go down to the Patrician Grill for breakfast. Of course, not everyone wants to go to the Grill and not everyone wants to do the bus tour either. And both have limited seating. So we essentially have come up with three options:
Please give us your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org!

Good day everyone! We promised you an exciting guest update this week, so here it is! Guest responses have started to trickle in and they have been overwhelmingly positive. We're happy to report that the following invited guests have indicated an interest in attending RCW 139: Thank You Kindly, of course subject to their availability and commitments in August. From the crew: Michael Bowman (Assistant Director), Alex Kavanagh (Costume Set Supervisor/Wardrobe Mistress), and Jeff King (Executive Producer). From the cast, Catherine Bruhier (Elaine), Tom Melissis (Dewey), and Ramona Milano (Francesca). And one more... RCMP constable Terry Russel told us "I'm in!" and should be back for another round of stories!
Things are looking great for next August, and we'll let you know once we hear from more of our invited guests. In the meantime, keep checking our Guest List for the latest details.
Please note that there are now less than 15 attending memberships available - so book quickly to avoid disappointment.

Hello Duesers! We're happy to make a couple of announcements today! First - we've chosen the awesome RCW 139: Thank You Kindly logo. The logo is once again the work of our awesome design artist John Wright, and embodies some of the best fan suggestions received! Let us know what you think!
Secondly, we're really excited because RCW 139 is close to selling out! Registration is continuing at a steady pace, and we're fast approaching 85%! We've had registrations from all over the world: Sweden, Finland, Belgium, Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom, and of course Canada! And we're really thrilled to see - once again - a mix of new and returning attendees. If tickets sell out, we will maintain a prioritized (first-come, first-serve) waiting list in case we have any cancellations. Also, do not forget to book your room at the Marriott as it is also filling up quickly!
Have a great week! We'll have some exciting guest news for you shortly!

Happy November! First, a registration update: we are now 77% sold out! This is fantastic after less than a month and a half of registration - so if you're planning to attend, quickly head over to the online store to ensure you get a ticket before they're all gone.
Second, do you remember last year's "Saddle Up My Travelling Shoes" photo contest? Well, we're doing it again. And if you don't remember... it's no problem, because it's very simple. The idea is that we want YOU to send us a picture of yourself holding an identifiable Due South-related item (we suggest a DVD set or soundtrack, but it could be anything!) in an interesting or unusual, but also identifiable location. Or perhaps with someone famous... or funny! Planning to visit the south pole? The Eiffel tower? Or maybe you're attending an event with the Queen or the President? Bring your Due South item, get someone to take a picture of you with it, and then send it to us at email@example.com.
Pictures will be shown at the convention, and prizes will be awarded for the best entries! Last year's entries included Due South at Cape Canaveral, Walt Disney World, the RCMP musical ride, and our winner - at the New South Wales Mounted Police stables. This year, we're hoping for even more out-of-the-way and creative entries. Note that this is open to both attendees and supporting members! Check out the contest page for all rules and regulations.
