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

    After following Vader's World Tour a few years back, Master--Kenobi of the Santa Cruz Fanforce has 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 you guys said you had an interest in joining. So, here's your planning thread. :D

    The original planning thread is Here, and a website is in the works.

    ~~Cheers
    Rachel

    Oh, I signed us up for this, btw! :p
    Hopefully we'll have nicer weather for Master Yoda's visit than when Lord Vader was here.

    hmmm the Ferry?

    Maybe we can do something cool like someone travels to Toronto to hand off to FanForce Canada or something?

    Brief update.

    I spoke to Master--Kenobi yesterday and the website is still being constructed. She's very eager to send the little green guy on his way and is thrilled that so many people are interested. :D As soon as we get a definite list of groups involved (more keep joining!), then we will start planning out a route for him to travel. :)

    Thanks again! :D

    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

    I'm more than willing to be the contact person - especially since I volunteered us for this. :p

    OK so we have a year to a year and a half before we'll see the little green guy. :(

    Oh well, at least we know he'll be visiting us eventually!

    Nick Tahou's yeah. LOL. Then take him to High Falls for a beer. depends on the time of year, of course.
    I want to see him in a kilt even though he's not going to Scotland.

    Do we take him to the ferry?

    Sure! We can take him where ever we want.
    I figured probably some of the same places Vader went would be a good idea. Although I'm hoping he makes it here in warmer weather so we don't have to trudge around in the snow like last time.

    So, in the past 6 months, Yoda has:

    * Been lost in London for 3 months.
    * Partied like a Brit in Midlands, England
    * Enjoyed the countryside of Wales
    * Had over 10 new fanforces added to his tour (mostly in Europe)
    * Spent the holidays in a French Post Office
    * Got "Returned to Sender" back to Wales

    So that takes us up to now. :p We're preparing to send Yoda to France for the 2nd time. Hopefully, he'll stay there this time. :p

    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


    Thank you for your patience! :D

    Was just reading over on the CR boards that Yoda is lost somewhere in Europe. :(
    TPTB are working to try to relocate him.

    Master Yoda has just resurfaced in Wales, UK so hopefully he'll be back on his tour soon.

    Yep. Doc is right.

    Since our attempts to send Yoda to France have not been working out, we have agreed to skip France and continue on to Germany. Hopefully the tour will pick up once more!
