The theme for 2013, "Rocks and Rails", was inspired by the province's influential railroad and mining industries.[citation needed] The theme was manifested around the hotel via signage resembling railway crossing signals.

2013 was the first year a local non-furry artist was brought on to create a GOH Dinner cake. Mother to one of the staff and definitely a furry ally, Julie (http://juliesmixedmedia.com/) created GOH 'Head' cakes for weremagnus, jondi and Omekin(Who couldn't make it but Maly_Twotails and the other GOH's enjoyed taking bites of the non-attending GOH and taking pictures.)
