    Hello Spokane! Rachel from San Diego/Inland Empire here.

    After following Vader's World Tour a few years back, Master--Kenobi of the Santa Cruz Fanforce decided to do the same. She is sending her fried Interactive Yoda (who met his doom during a certain scene in Velvet Goldmine) on a US and World tour.

    I'm helping her plan the trip, and we are trying to see which Fanforce would like to be apart of this tour.

    Care to join us? ;)

    The original planning thread is [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Santa_Cruz,_CA/b10693/20317084/?15]Here[/link], and a website is in the works. :D

    ~~Cheers
    Rachel

    I say we should participate. We missed being part of Vader's tour because we became a FanForce after the sign-ups had been collected and the tour had been set. It would be fun to be a part of this one :)

    Yeah, I say let's do it. It might be a good idea to start a poll with a link to this thread.

    I vote we do it, too. How funny!! Ewan's kind of cute - I might have to check out that infamous movie. I've never heard of it before...

    I am a sorry case sometimes...

    OK all, this is important. I just signed us up for the Yoda tour since everyone who voted wanted to do it. if you missed your chance to vote then sorry its too late. I will be posting details as soon as they come to me from the people that are starting this.

    Now for the business:
    Where do we want pictures taken of Yoda and group?
    Can/do you have a costume ready to take a picture with? (not needed but prefered)
    Are there any celebs in the area that would be willing or ust very cool to have a picture with? (Mr. Hagadon does not count even tho he owns Cd'A)
    Any other suggestions?

    So lets all look forward to seeing the Master in the future!

    Japanese gardens.
    Trolley.
    Silverwood (get one of those on-the-ride photos)

    Somehow i dont think that getting a group picture with spokanes mayor while in costume is politically correct. Sorry i think we should throw that out. even tho it would be good for a laugh

    NEWS:

    1) We are putting a cap on joining the tour. The last day to join is next Friday, July 8th. (If any of the other Fanforces in your area wish to join, let them know quick!) ;)

    2) Each fanforce will have 2 weeks with Yoda. The 2 weeks will start the day Yoda arrives. We ask that in those 2 weeks you take photos of him in "touristy, famous, or just plain cool" locations, and that he is shipped to the next Fanforce before the 2 weeks are up. We will be sending a logbook around with Yoda. The layout of the book has not been completely decided, yet once we know, you'll know. ;)

    3) And lastly, I am going to need a contact person. Someone in the group who will take full responsibility of Yoda and ensure that he is properly shipped off (and will also send the shipping number to either myself or Master--Kenobi, so we can keep track of him.)

    IF I DO NOT HAVE A CONTACT PERSON BY THE TIME THE TOUR BEGINS, I AM SORRY TO SAY WE SHALL HAVE TO REMOVE YOU FROM THE TOUR. :(

    What I need from the contact person:
    Name, home adress, email, and phone number. No, I'm not going to sell it online. :p Only two people will have a list of contacts: myself and Master--Kenobi. We need your adresses for shipping, email address to say "Hey, he's on his way, hey he's stuck in a blizzard, etc..", and the phone number will be a "just in case."

    Please have your appointed contact person PM me with this information.

    Thank you all and we're very eager to begin the tour!! :D

    Oh, no prob. I'm still waiting on some other groups for info, so I'm just hassling everyone. ;)

    Okay. Best guestimate I can give you guys is that Yoda will be heading to Spokane around April. Sorry I can't give you a confirmed date. I need to try to work in how long it's going to take to ship him everywhere. :)
