    Hello Buffalo! Rachel from San Diego/Inland Empire here. (*Waves like a tourist at Nicky and Dorkboy* :p )

    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.

    As a brief update, I spoke to Master--Kenobi yesterday. 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

    LMAO!!!!! Sorry, but Yoda doesn't like water. ;)

    That'd be a cute photoshop, though. :p



    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 need to talk to Kim, but it looks like we're going to reverse his original US route for weather. We're probably going to send Yoda through the southern states first (this will be around December/January, then have him head up north. By that time it'll be summer, so we don't have to worry about blizzards. :)

    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

    I'm looking forward to participating this time, since I missed the Vader visit. Guess we'll all get more excited when the visit gets a little closer.

    Keep your excitement to a minimum. It's going to be a while before he arrives.

    Yeah I'm thinking it'll be a year or so before Yoda makes any kind of trip near us.
    At least we have our time with the Traveling Trooper.
