Event Details

Given the great success of, and attendee satisfaction with, RCW 139: Toronto Holiday in August 2008, we don't intend to change anything too radically! We do intend, however, to bring in some news events, new content, and hopefully, new guests and new attendees. For an idea of what was featured at the last convention, and therefore the kinds of things that you can expect to see in 2010, consult our RCW 139: 2008 pages.

We're already planning to repeat some of the most popular and most requested events:

  • The Meet and Greet

  • The 6th RCW 139 Gala Dinner, featuring the 2nd RCW 139 dinner group picture... and maybe, some cake!

  • The Scavenger Hunt, with a whole new list of items

  • Guest panels (and possibly autographs!) with all the distinguished guests who accept our invitation - consult The Guest List for more details

  • The Great TO Due South Tour, with some twists from last year's

  • The Charity Auction, with all new items

Of course, just as much fun are the events that YOU organize. Games, panels, discussions... let us know what you have in mind!

You can expect regular updates to this page as we get closer to RCW 139 and we have a better idea of the events and timings.

Just a few notes to keep in mind...


Your RCW 139: Duesers' Day Off Organizing Committee has been working hard to make sure that everything runs smoothly for all of the guests and attendees. However, unexpected things can and do happen. Please look over the following few paragraphs and keep these things in mind as you enjoy your visit in Toronto.

Organizing Committee - Your Organizing Committee members, easily identified by their ID badges and red lanyards, play a vital role in ensuring an enjoyable convention for everyone. Need help? Have questions? In addition to your Organizing Committee, other volunteers identified by red lanyards will also be happy to try and answer your questions.

ID badges - Your ID badges identify you as paid attendees of RCW 139: Duesers' Day Off.  Your ID badges also include markings that identify the optional events for which you have registered. In addition, the ID badges are a great way to get introduced to other Duesers. Please ensure that you wear them and that they are visible at all times. If you are not wearing your badge, do not be offended if a member of the Organizing Committee or a volunteer requests that you produce it.

Special Guests - The special guests joining us this weekend are appearing without recompense, generously donating their personal time to be with us. Just as we all need the occasional break from the hustle-and-bustle, please respect their privacy when they're enjoying a brief respite. Similarly, please refrain from making personal requests from guests outside of their scheduled activities. Please do not ask for autographs outside of scheduled autograph sessions.

Autograph Sessions - We are all very excited that so many of the cast and crew of Due South have decided to join us for RCW 139: Duesers' Day Off. Should a guest be kind enough to sign autographs, please limit your request to one per person. If you would like to take a picture with the guest, please make sure to ask the guests if they are willing to be photographed.

Photography - Please respect the wishes of our special guests with respect to photography. If guests choose to allow photography, please do not abuse of the privilege.

Smoking - Smoking is not permitted anywhere inside the hotel.

Life in the City - Unfortunately in this day and age, being in a city means that you have to keep a particular eye out for your safety, your personal belongings, and the safety of those around you. While Toronto has a well-deserved reputation as a clean and friendly city, it is still a major metropolitan area. Be careful when travelling at night, or in unfamiliar areas unless you are travelling in a group. Do not leave personal belongings unattended.  See the sights... but be smart, safe, and enjoy your RCW 139 experience!
