    Hello Southern Colorado! 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 I heard you guys 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

    We're definitley up for it! We can take him out to see the cattle and put him in the canon at Bent's Fort or something...

    Or we can take him out to "Beans to Go"...our local dive...

    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 like this idea.

    We should get photos at the Garden of the Gods or maybe the top of Pikes Peak...we could be the group that got Yoda the highest! (you know what I mean)...

    Hey All

    Will you still be willing to let me use him for some filming?? I want to make a Spoof and I think he would be the best to have for everyone to see on film and for the tour. Let me know......Please.:D

    as long as it falls into the two week window, im all for passing him around SC. everyone who wants a turn with him for photos or filming should speak up. that way he gets to see the whole of Southern CO.

    Maybe he can play one of D_N_T's custom guitars...

    well, we certainly have time to plan out what we want to do with him. we are 48 on the list. considering each group has two weeks with him. plus all the mailing, im guessing we are going to get him for about 2 years maybe. and thats if groups don' keep him for too long. but its still gonna rock [face_dancing]

    So, Yoda never actually made it out the door in the first place?
