    OK, I don't know if anyone here (or who lurks here) has read about this in the other forums, but the Santa Cruz FanForce is sending a catatonic Yoda on a world tour.

    Here's the page [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Santa_Cruz,_CA/b10693/20317084/p1]http://boards.theforce.net/Santa_Cruz,_CA/b10693/20317084/p1[/link]

    I went ahead and signed up London, since the cutoff date is Friday. Hopefully we'll get Yoda when Deb's here, and we have a larger group.

    Welcome to the tour!! :D

    The tour will officially begin at the end of this month/beginning of August when Yoda sets foot (claw?) in Merry Old England. He'll then travel East through Europe, Asia, and Australia before heading to the US.

    I will not have a confirmed map planned out until this weekend, but Yoda will not be back in North America until November or December at the earliest.

    Once again, glad to have you on board!! :)

    HA! we get Yoda before TO does! [face_dancing] That might make it convenient for getting Yoda there though.

    Yoda is in England!!

    I am leaving for New Zealand tomorrow, so please direct ALL questions to Master--Kenobi until I get back.

    Also, on the issue of The logbook:

    A binder is being sent around with Yoda to help record his journeys. Each group will be allowed ONE PAGE to fill up/decorate to your hearts' desires. We ask that only one picture be put on it, as the rest can be uploaded to the website (which is going through SERIOUS technical difficulties at the moment and may not be up as soon as we'd like).

    A sample page can be seen [link=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b278/legomania5/yodalogsample.jpg]HERE[/link].

    You will have a place to put a picture, a small tag to indicate the date and other information, a small pocket to hold things, and a space at the bottom to describe his adventure.

    We ask that each group PLEASE only uses one page, as we only have enough for one page per group. Also, please do not include any plants or food on the page, since we don't want customs confiscating the book and breathing down our neck about it. :p

    Thanks again!

    Well, now we need to figure out what we'll do with Yoda. Can't go to Imax though, it's closing.

    A bit of an update:

    Well, to make a long story short, Yoda is only on his second stop (yes, you heard right). The London, England contact person disappeared for 3 months with Yoda and we finally just got him off to his next stop. This puts us behind by 3 months (he should already be in Asia or Australia by now :rolleyes: ), but the tour still goes on! :D

    (And no, we still don't have a website up. We're working on it when we can! :) )

    Well, at least he's started his journey. Hopefully by the time he gets to London we still have enough people here!

    Update:

    The website is almost finished. However, our webmisstress' computer crashed, so it will take a little bit before we can finish it. There are several text mistakes on the website (for instance, she listed Canada as being part of the USA [face_laugh] ), but other than that, it is nearly there! I will let you know when it is finished. :D

    As for Yoda himself, due to an error in the French Post Office, Yoda was sent back to Wales. We are currently preparing to try to send him to France once more. :)

    Thank you for your patience! :D

    Well, after 3 tries to send the little guy to France (and failing each time), we have decided to skip France and move on to Germany. The tour is WAY behind schedule, so we hope it will pick up pace and continue on.

    Thank you for your patience!

    Also, the website is now up in English, Spanish, and German with French on the way! :D

    Well just looking at yoda's travel history here. He's in Denmark, at last 3/4 of the way though Europe. Now for the number of stops he's made and the number of stops until he gets here. I guess it will be another 3 1/2 years before he gets here.

    It wouldn't surprise me if he ends up on the black market.

    Maybe we should keep an eye on e-bay for him. We could get him here faster if he does.
