Here's a message from the organisers of this summer's RCW 139 due South convention in Toronto:

Hello Due South fans!!

If you are interested in attending RCW 139, the only Due South fan convention happening this August, and haven't registered yet, you only have until July 15th to do so! The same applies if you can't attend and would like a supporting membership (goodie bag) and haven't ordered yours yet. We've started to receive some of the goodie bag items and they look fantastic! As we've already placed our orders for most items, this will be first come-first serve - and there are only a few memberships left, whether attending or supporting so don't miss out!

It's going to be an unmissable event with an amazing guest list including Paul Gross himself, who had a blast last time (all guests' attendance is subject to their work commitments)!  This is likely to expand even further as we get closer to the event and cast and crew can commit.  Added to our wonderful guests (including a private, once in a lifetime concert from the show's music master Jay Semko), we have a jam-packed weekend lined up, with quizzes, competitions, signings, filming location visits, merchandise stands, prop exhibition, gala dinner, charity auction and much, much more!

All the info is on our web site and you can place your orders on our online, secure PayPal store.  We can also advise on where to go for cheap flights and accommodation, including discounted hotel rooms.  Just email us at
